All `11+ GT's including the Brembo and TP use the same swaybars front and rear.
The whiteline one is most definitely an upgrade and it's also adjustable.

This is called a mechanical over rev and yes it is possible.
The rpm limiter and fuel shutoff can not stop it.

Actually the BBP is a $1,695 option. Considering it adds stiffer springs matching struts/shocks, GT500 LCA's, 19x9" wheels and the P Zero's on top of the Brakes it is a steal.

You are correct the TP is just a Brembo GT with Oil cooler (including Boss Radiator) and the Torsen differential (with finned cover). The suspension is identical between the two.

The panhard needs to be adjusted after the coilovers have been done.
As far as shock tuning it's personal preference. Start soft and firm it up to your liking.

If memory serves the V6 PP has the same suspension as the base GT's.
But like said above adding proper lowering springs and a good shock/strut package will do wonders for either car.

If you really plan on tracking the car the stock parts (even the Brembo/Track Pack) are not going to cut it. These cars are under sprung under damped and way under tired to be competitive. Ask Sam...

The BBP (code 55D) has been around since 2011 And the Track Pack (code 55R) was added in `13 so the dealer has no excuse for not knowing about these separate options.

I find that a 500-750 rpm blip above the current rpm is enough of a rev match for 1 gear drops. Obviously I have a GT and it may be different but timing on clutch release is still key to smooth...
