well, sort of

We have been held back by the new prototype clutch. It shipped yesterday. So I should have it in the next few days.
I will post a few photos when it comes in. Then I just need time to put it all back together! Been working on my other project to much!
Will keep you posted if we ever make progress!

Hey Rodney, new gt350 owner here, also new to the forum. Anything new on this build? I'm interested in learning more about this motor. Looking to build also

Actually just dusting of the car and digging parts out again. We have had a busy summer at the shop.
Still having issues getting the clutch into production but it has been promised for next week.
Starting installing the Fore Fuel system and routing a few things. The short block is done and waiting on the correct arp head studs... ordered the dang wrong ones.
Hopefully the motor will go back together next week and if the clutch shows we MIGHT get it back together. MIGHT is a big word. If we have many cars come in.. customers are always first.
I still have not heard of anyone is building the short block the way we have. Not sure if anyone else has solved the clutch issues either. Really had my head under the hood recently.

So the clutch showed up today! It is a work of art! Will post some pictures up. Still waiting on flywheel and head studs. Hopefully next week we can start putting this back together and testing a real clutch.
Leading Edge Tuning in Houston Tx. will have the triple disc clutch and revised flywheel available after testing.

Papa Jay. What is the issue with the tuning? They are not hard to tune at all.
Leading Edge Tuning unfortunately closed the shop portion of the business. The GT350 was relocated to another shop for reassemble. It unfortunately sat for months unfinished. It is my understanding it is nearly back together.
I do know the revised clutch design went in the car but do not know any results yet. After I hear how it works, and if the new shop plans on releasing them I will let you all know. The clutch is a work of art! I spent a lot of time back in the
day with the designer I sure hope it is released. <if not, maybe I will get into the clutch business!>

Im a moderator on another forum and work for a ford store. As I'm sure you are aware of, some of these motors eat oil. Some alot and like mine, a quart about every 1200 miles. Ive been doing a oil comsumption test and its been steady ... not getting worse or better and I have 8800 miles on the car.
With your engine rebuild and overall car expertise, do you know why a fair amount of these GT350's consumer oil ?

Would love to know and share it on the other forum that I am involved in

Thanks !!

don
