While Mustang shaker & ram air systems work differently, both achieve the same goal in your classic Mustang. A Mustang shaker & ram-air systems both will increase the pressure of the air going into your Mustang engine
, which increases the horsepower and torque to the wheels. A Mustang shaker works by mounting a Mustang cold air intake
right onto the engine's air cleaner. The Mustang shaker works by collecting cool air through the shaker intake, which protrudes through a hole that would need to be cut into any classic Mustang hood
. Custom hoods, with the hole for the Mustang shaker already precut, are available. The reason that Mustang shaker is called a 'shaker' is due to the fact that, since it is mounted directly to the engine, it vibrates with the engine, resulting in a significant shake to the intake compared to the lack of motion in the hood.
Meanwhile, Mustang ram-air systems work a little differently. Rather than having an intake mounted directly to the air cleaner, the Mustang ram-air system uses an intake hold cut in various spots on the hood, which feeds air to a more traditional intake that is mounted somewhere in the engine bay. This system also results in much higher air pressures, since the Mustang ram-air system can feed much more air to the engine.
