    I'll never have to worry about that part.
    Hey GT Dave, any chance of sending a photo or 2 for your fix?

    I took three people around the block and rode in a supercharged GT.

    Met with my town's road agent to correct the slope from the road to my driveway (Over the summer, town had added yet another layer of asphalt to the road). Also ordered Redline Tuning Hood struts in black- considered the AG painted but decided to go with the black because there's plenty of black under the hood & I wanted to go w the powder coat rather than paint . Will also peel decals off for aesthetics.

    I assume it wasn't a tough install?? I have one on order.

    I see we aren't too far apart-do you plan to take it to the track (i.e. HPDE) any time this summer? We have several events scheduled between NJMP and Summit Point and a three day event wt Watkins Glen. Maybe we will see each other at one of these events. If I don't have the GT350 with me, I will have a white with blue stripe 2009 Shelby GT500

    I sent a query to Manley about conrods, they said they are working on them with Ford Racing. Must be nice to be in the business. I found out about one Shelby out here that spun a conrod bearing. Possibly due to excess flex in the conrod.

    Put the struts on yesterday. 10- 15minutes install. Did it solo, no problem. works perfect.

    Thanks for the info Boss Doc. Noticed my hood was misaligned a bit so I'm gonna hold off on the Redlines until I can get to hood straightened out.

    Typically a connecting rod bearing dies from lack of oil or most likely detonation. If you see the top half of the bearing is trashed then it is detonation. Was it tuned by someone?

    I can sell you a set of rods and pistons. I met with Ford lead motorsports engine engineer and Trip Manley at Sema. We worked out at the show what needed to be done.
    Basically Manley doesn't have a direct replacement rod just yet. The wrist pin diameter is 1mm off. However you can use a different rod if you swap pistons. No point installing rods without forged pistons anyway.
    This only causes a slight issue with the stroke being .010 shorter. Deck the block and all is good.

    I will be heading over to my machinist tomorrow morning to check out progress and get a few measurements for the clutch design.
