My initial guess is wheel-hop. The Coyote is powerful enough to make the GT wheel hop even n 3.31:1 rear gears. Even more so on low traction conditions such as wet roads. I can wheel hop my car on...

Good points; I too am holding off buying an S550 for similar reasons.
The ride and handling are an improvement as numerous magazines have discovered from first hand testing.

But for me, I too...

I vaguely remember this, but I thought it was just online blog rumors.
But I could be wrong and FoMoCo's media personnel could have made the announcement directly and I just missed it.

Well, if...

Check out FRPP. Or ask your dealerships if they are FRPP approved salesmen. FRPP should have the striping packages you would be interested in.

Thanks again. I left off another assumption to the reason for the V8 90degree bank separation: Crossplane crankshafts.

I had to look up the Yamaha/Ford SHO V8, but I found it.
Yes, since its...

Your car is equipped with the 6R80, which has a very deep 1st gear already, 4.17:1.
Going with a 4.10:1 rear gear makes your 1st gear like boobs on a bull: you can't use at all. Your car will...

I'm not sure there will be a S550 GT500. One of the design concerns that Ford is adhering to is sufficient "air space" between the hood and the top of the engine for the sake of meeting Euro...

Same here. My guess is if Ford were to call the S550 GT350 something else, it would probably have been called the Mach I. Or Ford could have revived the Boss name once again.

I guess this because...

This is one reason why I hate the S550 front end appearance design. It looks too much like a Fusion. Too much Evos.

FoMoCo wants the Evos-Aston Martin grille to define their products now. That's...

That 2nd order harmonic can be a bee-otch. In in-line fours, at least the vibration is only up and down. If our engines were inline 8 cyl, they would also only be up and down vibrations.

Unfortunately, I seriously doubt that Ford will sell the GT350 for anything less than $60K.
Various blogs and rumors in the Camaro forums pegs the GT350 to compete against the $73-$75K Z/28, so my...

Since our car came with the 3.15:1 rear gear, that means your car is an automatic with the really deep 4.17:1 1st gear.

Going with the 3.55:1 rear gears for improved wheel torque would be best....

PNYXPRESS is correct. The Z/28 does not come with a supercharged engine. It comes only with a NA 7.0L engine.
For road course tracks, NA is the way to go to eliminate heat soak.

How heavy is the stock S550 resonator box?

I assume that by deleting that resonator box and putting in this H or X mid-pipe would save a decent amount of weight.

FoMoCo has always placed comfort, NVH, and daily driving over performance.
