Thinking if putting this distributor boot on my distributor from Ford like the Mustang units.
Will it cause any damage?

Nope, a lot of us run them for water protection, just grab one from your local pic a part, I think I paid $5 last time.
I live waaaaaaay out in Hico, TX
Not likely to find a local pic - a - part.
But I appreciate the response.:beer

Now - if i could just get some info on this:
(I crack myself up)
i don't recommend running floor mats, or even carpet for that matter, my carpet was jamming on my gas pedal at one point, since then i have decided to remove it, if you do, you should cover the floor in bed liner, and be prepared for lots of road noise
I just dont see myself tearing up this interior:

Dust boot off of an 80's GT Mustang. Should help keep some water out of the distributor during water crossings.

yo again Chief,
I may have a source for the grommets.
Do they protrude Upward from the carpet or from under same?
Or are they pressed in from above the mat into the carpet/floor pan?
I bought one (distributor boot) on e-bay for 13.00 new fee shipping - probably made him made on that one :)

There is a stud type thingy in the floor carpet that protrudes through the floor mat:
