Can someone post where I need to look to see these door drain holes? I need to unclog mine.

Snap some pics of that new Voodoo engine and post that.

Just the outside of the engine will do. No need to snap shots of the rotating assembly.

Thanks for forwarding his pics. I was doubtful even pics existed since the GT350 and any of its SVT specific parts are not yet even on the market. :)

What is missing? For me, on the appearance part, the S550 is missing what is supposed to resemble a front bumper; something that has always been present in every generation of Mustangs.
