I am thinking of switching out the boring GT faux cap with this one. Any thoughts?

personally, I feel it is a bit misleading and a bit poser'ish. I'd keep the snake off of your ride.

your car, your call, just saying what a lot of people will think! :]

While it does look cool, that would make your GT a fauxbra. & I love the GT cap.. especially on the 2010+

I am not sold on the GT cap.... Wish they would have had a 5.0 or something else on the back... soooooo I added the Boss intake to my car so does that make me a poser Not sure what I am going to do but like to hear opinions on it. I was kinda thinking by just adding the snake was ok since it wasn't the GT500.

Don't do it. Seriously, people will be very unhappy if they see a cobra on a regular GT. It's like if an Accord puts a GTR sticker on it's bumper, or if a cobalt had a 3 stage 2-foot-tall spoiler.

I see! No one like the idea yet... I pretty sure I'm not doing it anyways but I thought looked cool. Guess I should have just bought a GT500....

Nah, just build up your GT. Make it yours. As cool as a Shelby is, making your car YOUR car is even cooler.

Hey man, it's your car. Do what you like

Personally, I don't like the appearance of this particular cobra and I think if you really liked it very much, you wouldnt be asking us regardless of the conversation about misleading folks. I dont know if its the red or the angle of his head, but something for me is a little off.

And maybe this is noise in the picture, but at the 3 o'clock position is looks like there's some light vertical scratching almost as if its been sandpapered a bit.

If you had a GT500 or Cobra, I would say yes. If not, then it will be considered misbadging. I say PASS........

I have cobra badges on my car and I think they look awesome. It's your car and you should do what you like with it.

What do I think???
I say F**k em if they can't take a joke...it's your ride, do what ya want. Just be prepared and pack plenty of tissue's for the haters. They will also come in handy when a real cobra pulls up beside you and shows you the error of your ways

that's a performance upgrade, and not something you can really change. it's also under the hood where few people will get to look. an exterior badge is something everyone sees.

It's your car and you can dress it up any way you like. If you follow the Mecum or Barret-Jackson auctions then you know that re-badging and cloning cars has become common. Make sure you can put yours back to original "just in case"...

As it has been said, it is your car do as you wish. Check out the guys at Emblempros www.emblempros.com and have them make you something that is all yours. I am happy with their work.
