  1. The last set of New 20" Alcoa's with "SUPER SNAKE" also engraved on the lips sold on eBay for $7500, that was about 3 years ago. I have seen many sets of "SHELBY FORGED" (no Super Snake) and "50 YEARS" sell in the $4K to $5K range, in nice condition and when there is damage, the price drops pretty quick. R
  2. If you are asking about widest wheel size, and not widest tire on stock/oem wheels, I believe the 2013 owner below has 12" Alcoa's on the rear....... ^^^^^^^^^^and 10" Alcoa's on the front, I'm pretty sure. If I remember correctly this owner had asked me some questions about the 10"/12" Alcoa set up on my 2008 before he went into that project. R
  3. Hi Jer! I haven't seen any posts from you in quite a while. R
  4. The best handling upgrade I did to my 2008 Super Snake (after Shelby did what they did in Las Vegas) was to get those little 255 tires and the 9" wide Alcoa's off of the front and install 275's on 10" wide Alcoa's. My car is much more planted feeling in turns and I can take clover leaf exit ramps off of the interstate with much more confidence. I could tell a difference from the moment I turned out of my driveway and did a moderate/tight circle turn around the cul-de-sac at the end of my street. That was 6+ years ago and I have been happy with the front grip on my 2008 GT500 since that time. R
  5. Yes, those are the LC lines to the left of the pulley. My car was shipped back to me in late Jan. 2009 and it was the 725 w/KB 2.8, it is not LC'ed. I don't remember seeing the LC option until Jim Bell's Grabber Orange 2008 Super Snake was featured in one of the Mustang magazines and they were doing a 3.6LC install. I was thinking the 2.8LC option came later? I believe Jim Bell's GO 2008 3.6LC install was in a 2010/11 Mustang magazine....I think... R
  6. The reason why I asked is because the Liquid Cooled feature was not on the KB S/C's from that earlier time period. Kenne Bell developed and later offered the LC feature on the 3.6 and then later on the 2.8 and then 3.2, so that is why I was asking. I believe (but am not positive) that a non-LC 2.8 can be sent back to Kenne Bell for a LC upgrade, but I am not sure what that cost would be. It seems to me that the Liquid Cooled was first offered by KB in 2011 or so? <<I could be wrong. Those are Nice HP numbers! R
  7. Mick - Your car appears to have an earlier build number at 136, but I see a Liquid Cooled S/C that I am guessing is a 2.8 (not a 3.2), when was this car upgraded to a Super Snake? Robert
  8. Hi Mick - Beautiful Super Snake. I like the addition of the clear marker light lenses and the deletion of the ambers, that makes all of the difference in the world for a clean look on the front of these cars. When I hear "Down Under" I always think of two pictures I have in my archive............ and........ Congrats on a beautiful Super Snake! R
  9. I am in no way saying these fit properly, because I have no experience with them, but here is a clear cover set that is specific to the 2007-2009 Shelby GT500. They could be tinted to your preference?..... https://www.summitracing.com/parts/gts-gt0241c/applications/submodel/shelby-gt500?prefilter=1 ^^^^This GTS company also makes tinted covers for the same application............but they say something about Carbon Fiber look?? I wonder if these clear covers would be a wise investment to place over the expensive HID housings for protection? R
  10. The frames shown are not for sale, but the picture of the one shown in the original post is like the one I bought a few months ago on eBay. I had never seen another one like it and thought it was a later version offered by SPP that may have replaced the original billet aluminum frame, but maybe not. There is no part number or identifiers that I have found on the rear side. The checker flag engraving on each side, right and left bottom are pretty cool and give it more of a custom look and not so generic...... ^^^I keep it stored in the original blister packaging that came with the billet frame that is on my Super Snake. R
  11. If someone on here is changing their wheels, or decides to send their Super Snake back to Shelby for a wide body, I am interested in buying a set of the Satin Silver finish 2015/16 Super Snake wheels. If you have a set for sale, or know of a set for sale, please send me a PM. Thanks, Robert
  12. I had both driver and passenger sides replaced a couple of weeks ago on my 2008. The only parts replaced were the inflators behind the bags, what is seen while sitting in the driver and passenger seats were reused, no changes to the covers. I have pictures of each side being removed, the inflators replaced with the units laying on the work station and the re-install of each................and I am still getting recall notices!!! R
  13. ^^^^^That was my concern. I believe that the oem rails will remove without R&R of the blower, I have a set of oem stainless rails that have been polished and the solder flux removed while polishing, I may install them for right now. I got a length of correct cross-over fuel line from KB a while back to install on these polished rails and route around the back of the 2.8........................Maybe I will also do a test fit/install of the Shelby/Metco rails that I already own, just to verify the drivers side below the inlet....... R
  14. Has anyone installed a set of billet alum. aftermarket fuel rails on their KB Super Snake? Can they be installed without blower removal? The KB 2.8 specifically...... The drivers side under the inlet is where I have the concern. Since the inlet on the Kenne Bell blower does not unbolt just above the drivers side fuel rail (as some other blowers do), is there enough clearance under the inlet to remove the oem stainless rail and install the taller Billet alum. rail? R
