can i ask why you're selling?  was the set-up not everything you hoped it would be?
i've always THOUGHT it would be cool to have a super-charger, but not many Shelby owners use them.
why?  maintenance and/or reliability issues?  inquiring minds want to know!

5s363 had an untouched engine and its original engine tag in '91.  bare aluminum intake

Sfm6sxxx, that's great information for my research. Thanks for sharing!

If you want a picture or just the info, let me know.  When I sold the car, the person that bought/restored the car kept the tag.  After he sold the car, he later sold the tag on ebay a few years ago and my friend bought it.  So, I went and took some pics today.
The dimensions minus the fittings are 15" long, 3" thick & 4" wide. 6" wide when you include the hanger brackets.
It is entirely possible it was used on a “as needed” basis.

I have seen it in other unrestored saddle interiors

assemblyline pics of 65s at SA  show new intakes on the floor getting ready to install

Looks like a "pile" of swaybars heaped there as well.
Yes, it is factory

No sign of it on my saddle car.

Do you think there was an intake mask used by Ford so that the intake wasn't painted like was done with the 67 GT500 engine (and other Ford assembled Shelby engines)?

I've never heard of nor seen any evidence of that on the GT350's as we find on the 67 GT500 or the Boss 302's for examples. Overspray or paint blow out on gaskets, intake or other areas around the edges of the intake as you would find with a mask. On the 500's they didn't have a choice since the head and intake design is so different - doesn't allow  for an easy swap due to the valve train design. Always difficult somewhat, to put ourselves in the minds of engineers and plant managers of the time period looking backwards IMHO

Was reminded as I look through my picture collection looking at some other details that if a mask had been used for the small block engine painting with COBRA intake in place that the intake bolts holding the intake to the engine would not have been painted blue as we find them on original cars.

Just thought that should be mentioned also.   

Discussions will continue as they should  :)
My vehicle had a flat metal clip held on from the back. There were two clips.
