A little reading for everyone who has added subframe connectors and or a roll cage. Oh yeah, brush up on your math and physics before reading :rotf:

Very cool :thumbsup: Wow the GT moves some coolant (100 GPM) I think the Evans 03/04 kit moves around 65 GPM @ 5500 RPM

I could not find any downloads for either the 2000 R or the 2003-2004 Cobras on their websight. Most of the things (engineering) must have been done inhouse at Ford.

Yea I saw that!!! Pretty darn cool!

What a great write up huh???
There are a couple more that cover some of the different sub systems too.
EDIT-> OOPS I see you all ready found them...
One thing that really blew my mind was one of the primary cooling "problems" encountered during the GT's developement..... was....

AIR FLOW through the cooling module!!! That still is a limiting factor. They had to compromise on the amount of air coming in with the designers and wind tunnel guys!

Thanks for the link!!! Yes I do love reading that stuff!!! :thumbsup:

Yea the actual calculating is beyond my math skills.

But the paragraphs and descriptions are understandable. Pretty cool stuff!!

No wonder grass roots racers have been welding seams on race cars as long as they have been.... = a little less tubing to be welded in.

Start out with a better tub and then weld seams in that and you get....

FR500C!!! :p The new body style Mustangs have an incredible structure!!! :thumbsup:

Yea... I hear you :doubt: Those compressor maps have so much stuff in them they are pretty non-meaningful to me. :scratch: :confused:

I may be able to tell you more about that blower's characteristics from seat of the pants feel in a few weeks... :p
