-for the best possible platform, the convertible pan was used with the coupe body

-the wheels were the first "squeeze cast" units to ever be installed on a Ford vehicle resulting in a stronger, truer wheel

-the coil springs were devoid of isolators

-The mass air meter/air cleaner was from the 32V Cobra

-before installing the engines they were "hot tested" and actually started up right on the shipping pallet to verify proper oil and fuel pressure

-the piston-to-bore fit had a rather large clearance, which created a "rattle" or "chatter" between 2K & 3K RPM, particularly when the engine is cold...it was also often heard on late 60's 428 Cobra Jet engines.

I can't wait.... :thumbsup:...only a few more years. :(

I'm sure they will....just not positive since they don't want to squash the Ford GT's glory by putting a even more powerful motor in the '07 Cobra and other mods to make it into an R. I could be wrong though. :dunno:
