  2. California 2019 GT350 with R aero and OEM+ modifications

    I bought this car second-hand in August 2021 from an auto mechanic who took great care of it. I have maintained it since then with an open checkbook and invested more than $15K in upgrades in the spirit of creating an OEM+ sports car. I am looking to free up some capital for investment...
  3. Happy Memorial Day: buy some cheap oil

    O’Reilly has Motorcraft 5W-50 oil in stock for $8.99/quart ($0.50 less than RockAuto) with free shipping and they’re offering 20% off orders over $100 for Memorial Day with code HONOR20. I just got 20 quarts, enough for 2 changes, for $7.19/quart plus tax. I hope some of you are able to take...
  4. Aero: Swing + Gurney Flap vs. GT350R Wing

    I have a 2019 GT350 which was equipped with a swing + gurney flap. I recently changed this out for a GT350R wing. I'm at my first track day since the change and the car feels much looser than before. It's probably just me being off my game (don't blame the equipment!) or my PSC2 tires being...
  5. Tomorrow, March 17: SCCA Track Night in America at Thunderhill

    I’ll be there. Anyone else? https://www.tracknightinamerica.com/events/2000383-track-night-2022-thunderhill-raceway-park-march-17 $140 for SCCA members ($15 extra if you’re not a member) minus $25 off with the discount code HagertyDriversClub2022
  6. Mixed wheel sizes - anyone done this?

    Has anyone mixed 19s on the front and 20s on the rear? What was the result? BMW does this some of their models (e.g., 2018 M3 CS, 2021+ M3). Mercedes does this with the C63S. Chevrolet does this with the Corvette. Porsche does this with the 991 GT3 RS. There must be a benefit to it. @50 Deep...
  7. GT350R: value impact of a replacement engine?

    Are GT350Rs with replacement engines selling for any less than those with original engines? I am looking at a 2019 GT350R for sale with 14K miles for about $75K. The engine was replaced under warranty at 10K miles. The car looks pretty flawless with ceramic coating, front PPF, and a 5 year /...
  8. Transferring Ford ESP

    The original owner of my GT350 purchased a 5 year, 75k mile Ford PremiumCARE extended warranty for it. I can see on the Oasis report that it’s still active and I can see the prior owner’s name. The warranty was purchased 12/30/2020. The car was then traded in to a Chevrolet dealer a week later...
  9. Does the R splitter scrape more?

    If I put an R splitter on my base GT350 Will it scrape more than the base lip? I am talking about a situation where I keep my 35 aspect ratio tires, not change to the 30 tires on Rs, which would lower the car. I’ve been told it won’t because the R splitter is not as low as the base splitter so...
  10. California WTB: 19" x 11" ET52 wheels for GT350 track duty

    Like the title says, I'm interested in buying a set of four 19x11 ET52 wheels that will let me have a square, rotatable setup for the track. I am open to Apex EC-7, Apex SM-10, Project 6GR Seven, Project 6GR Ten, Vibe GT7-R, Signature SV104 or SV107 or SV504 (or many other Signature designs)...
  11. Does a R feel much different from a 2019+ GT350?

    How similar are a 2019+ GT350 and GT350R in feel and capability? Is the R worth the $20K premium in the used market if you aren’t buying for prestige and potential collector value? I have read Ford made a lot of updates to the base GT350 in 2019 that brought it very close to the GT350R in lap...
  12. 103 dB HPDE at Laguna Seca 2/5-2/6

    Days with high (103 dB) noise limits that let us run output cars full bore at Laguna Seca are few and far between but there is one coming up in a couple weekends. It’s the only one this year that I see on MotorsportRe Corsa Club is hosting an event on Saturday 2/5 and Sunday 2/6. It’s $350 per...
  13. Anyone have a car trailer or race ramps?

    I am going from SF to Buttonwillow this weekend. I'd like to drive down with my family instead of on my own, which means towing the GT350. Does anyone in the Bay Area have a car trailer I can rent? Or race ramps I can borrow (so that I can use a Uhaul trailer)? I would need it from tomorrow...
  14. Mixing tires: PS4S front, SC2 rear?

    I have Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires in 295/35ZR19 on the front of my GT350 and Nitto NT555G2 in 305/35ZR19 on the rear. The Nittos have lost traction unpredictably in the wet too many times for me so I need to replace them. I'd prefer matching tires but the PS4S only comes in a 30 aspect ratio...
  15. R Spoiler on a GT350?

    I vastly prefer the GT350R rear spoiler to the standard GT350 one. Would I be a poser if I installed an R spoiler on my GT350? (I know it would require filling and painting the trunk lid.) Also here's the GT500 CFTP spoiler for reference:
  16. SF Bay Area Mechanics

    Are there any particularly good Ford Performance / GT350 / GT500 independent mechanics in the SF Bay Area? I am looking for a reputable shop for non-warranty work / preventative maintenance (oil, brakes, etc.). I don't want to DIY while this car is under warranty given what people say about the...
  17. Just joined the GT350 club

    I took delivery of my GT350 today. It's a 2019 model in Ford Performance Blue with Electronics Package, Carbon Fiber Interior and Recaros. It has 15K miles but not a single ding, scratch or stain on the body, wheels or interior. This is my first Ford and first non-BMW vehicle in 19 years...
  18. Would you buy a 16-18 GT350? For what discount vs. 19-20?

    I am brand new here so apologies for the basic question that I'm sure many have asked before. After 6 BMWs I'm looking for something different and shopping for a sports car that I can use on the weekends in Northern California and take to autocross events and HPDEs. I tried to order a new M3...
