    Here is some "old school" trivia.

    Did you know that back in 1970, MOPAR's abbreviation for the shaker was the following: ieqcag

    It stood for Incredible Exposed Quivering Cold Air Grabber

    Check out the following image from a Plymouth 'Cuda brochure. Note the arrow pointing to this option.

    I remember when some 'Cuda owners would opt out for a hotter camshaft to really make that engine shake at an idle. A hot cam with some exhaust mods would create a whole new sound when cruising through the burger joints. Nowadays I see some Challenger owners with exhaust mods working the paddle shifters and foot feed taking off from a traffic signal. A head turner for certain....sounds great in a tunnel too. I do remember some Chevy owners that would opt out for a timing chain to timing gear swap, a hot cam with exhaust mods/cut outs....this would create the whine and rumble that would put the Ward Cleaver types up a wall and run the cops crazy. Some things should never change.

    Music to my ears, then and now.

    Sorry guys, I misspelled the acronym. It should be: IQECAG

    It's ok. We can all agree on the abbreviation code ILUVIT

    That's interesting for sure. I ran timing gear set instead of chain on my s10. Once in awhile someone would stop me and ask if had blower. It whined a bit and the cam barked at idle. If I had a old school shaker that thing would dance a jig.
