And it was actually Craig Jackson himself that got the winning bid. After all these years I think that's the first time Ive seen him bid on a car in his own auction

Hold up. Looking at the GT500 engine pics is the GT500 engine NOT dual injected? It doesnt look like it has the DI pump on the passenger valve cover.

WTF but why not!?

I don't get that from reading that. The GT350 will get the new block. But I am sure it will keep the FPC, lighter rod & pistons, and cams.

What will also need to be seen, is will the GT350 also get the longer head studs, additional cooling passages, and so on.

Yea no chance the gt350 goes to a cpc. Who's even buying gt350's now? A cookie cutter GT with an auto will blow its doors off and didn't the PP2 have better numbers on a course?

Check out this video at time index 5:16 and look at the rear wheel.
What is that extra thing on the brake rotor? Is it the parking / emergency brake?
I know some cars with DCT's have an electric parking brake.

Auto GT faster than a GT350 around a road course?

Huh? Where? Since when?

If you read it a little slower youíll see that I was saying a stock A10 GT is faster in a straight line and I was questioning if a PP2 car, which only comes in manual btw, had a better lap time in a comparison. I thought I read that somewhere but not 100% sure and I donít feel like searching for it.

Maybe if you write them a letter explaining that you want these numbers now, they'll release them. I mean they'd certainly want to keep a guy that couldn't afford a down payment on one happy, right?

Appears you and our Iraqi Veteran could use a nice candlelight dinner and hotel room overlooking Lake Michigan to talk through your differences while together work out any pent up energy.

Let us know what date works best for you two so we can schedule accordingly.

I look forward to seeing yours in the members rides section. Hell Ill even drive out to come see it but I know I dont have to worry about ever making that trip. Youll never have one either.

WTF does saying putting it on some talk show is pointless have to do with ownership?

Ohh yea thats right.......... Absolutely nothing.

Fords dragging their ass on this car everyone knows that.

Why do they need to advertise all that? Who cares. The internet has already sold/advertised the car enough to people who want to buy it without knowing statistics
