    Troy, Michigan (July 18, 2008) – Saleen's Aftermarket Division, SpeedLab, announced today the introduction of a new technology for air induction systems called the SuperShaker™. The patent pending SuperShaker™ embodies the classic appeal of shaker hood styling while delivering exhilarating performance via modern Supercharger technology.

    By combining the proven efficiency of the Saleen series VI intercooled supercharger with that of the new and highly efficient SuperShaker™ induction system, SpeedLab has brokered the perfect marriage; bringing together Beauty AND Beast for the first time.

    For decades, the two theories of air induction were separated. With this revolutionary new system, SuperShaker™ couples the best of both worlds. The "ram air" design and functionality of a true shaker hood is now mated with the forced air induction system via an intercooled, twin screw Saleen series VI supercharger. Saleen SpeedLab is the first and only manufacturer offering this highly engineered technology to the market.

    "For the first time ever, consumers do not have to sacrifice muscle car styling to get more power and performance," says Michael Lingo, Vice President & General Manager of Saleen's Aftermarket Division, "the SpeedLab SuperShaker™ puts real muscle under your hood producing power that can be seen and heard".

    PERFORMANCE

    The SuperShaker™ induction path is much shorter and less restrictive compared to existing designs, and is a true "cold air" intake that is sealed off from the engine compartment, thus enhancing vehicle performance. The SuperShaker™ induction system sits above the hood and is isolated from the hot air in the engine compartment. This is especially beneficial in static situations such as at stop lights or take off during drag racing. Once up to speed, the shaker hood scoop rams fresh cold air into the air box where it is pressurized, allowing greater boost at higher speeds.

    The ground-breaking design efforts at Saleen have resulted in a durable design that can withstand the harsh environment of everyday driving. By angling the custom air filter forward, water and debris will be deflected down to the bottom of the air box where it can be evacuated and not affect the performance of the filter. There are two molded pieces that make up and include the air box, providing a skirt that mounts to the rear of the box which protects the compartment from water, debris and environmental hazards. This unique design does not require any extraordinary mounting or securing devices, allowing the air box to utilize the maximum space available within the tight constraints. The result is a larger surface area for the air filter and compact OE style look.

    "The shorter intake and minimal restriction allows for more cold air to be available to the engine immediately, resulting in less lag time and quicker throttle response, says Marc Musial, Chief Powertrain Engineer, "providing instant power that is available on demand throughout the power curve".

    APPLICATIONS

    The Saleen SpeedLab SuperShaker™ is engineered and designed to fit all 2005-current model Mustang GT's. The SuperShaker™ kit will increase your total power from 500 – 700HP. SpeedLab will also be offering additional SuperShaker™ upgrade components.

    "We are very excited to offer this one of a kind system to the Mustang enthusiast community," says Carlos Duran, Manager of Saleen's Aftermarket Sales, "in addition to the SuperShaker™ kit; we have made this revolutionary product available to our existing Saleen Series VI Supercharger owners with the release of the ShakerLid upgrade kit. The ShakerLid kit allows all Saleen customers to enjoy the SuperShaker™ experience."

    As a featured exclusive, Saleen SpeedLab will also manufacture a limited number of SuperShaker™ kits designed especially for Saleen Parnelli Jones (PJ) Edition owners. This special limited run kit will feature unique Saleen/ PJ personalized badging and will be registered as a Saleen Supercharged PJ to enhance exclusivity. The PJ SuperShaker™ kit is available direct from the factory or through Saleen Certified Dealers.

    Saleen SpeedLab is now taking pre-orders for the SuperShaker™ kit with an estimated production date starting late August 2008. Call today at 1800-888-8945 to speak directly with your Saleen SpeedLab specialist.

    The SuperShaker™ will be featured at a special Woodward Dream Cruise VIP Ride & Drive Event at Saleen's production facility in Troy, Michigan, on August 15, 2008. Enthusiasts will be able to experience a Saleen H281 or Saleen Parnelli Jones edition mustang fitted with the new SuperShaker™ system.

    So, it's a ram-air scoop with an integrated air filter panel, and it directs the intake air into the supercharger, right?

    It looks nice, but I don't see how this is revolutionary.

    You mean the guy who owns Saleen? Well, he does deserve props for building not one, but two supercars under his own name...it's just this particular thing doesn't seem that amazing.

    But hell, maybe nobody's ever made one specifically for the Mustang before, I dunno.

    It's because since fuel injection, the last shaker hoods were like this:

    So, although not revolutionary when looking at carb set-up, it's definitly an improvement for EFI stangs

    I'm not sure I understand what I'm looking at here. Are you saying the SuperShaker relocates the airflow sensor so it's on top of the engine instead of down off to the side? Does that really matter? I mean, it looks like the SuperShaker still has at least one near-180-degree bend in the intake, to direct rear-moving air back towards the front of the engine. Won't that negate most of the advantages of the ramscoop anyway?

    It seems to me if you really wanted the "shaker" look, but you were stuck using tube+cone CAI to feed your engine, you could still use the shaker as an intake to cool the engine with. I guess that's not really "genuine", though.

    Based on how they described it, it looks like it directs the air backwards through a filter, im guessing through a MAF then into the blower. Not like the design I linked. It's definitely better than before it seems

    Steve left last year, the primary investment house Hancock Park took over ownership and moved main operations back to Troy, MI from Irvine, CA. Now they carry out their own project plans and designs.
