Nice find! First clear shots I've seen of the air cleaner assembly, etc. So thanks for posting that.

Funny to hear him comment on the same thing we've been discussing regarding the theft potential of the CF Track Package wing. Ford.....are you even listening?

I thought that was kind of funny also. I would hate to lose a wing like that. Also I think that is the first video under the hood?

I believe it was the first under hood video. I've seen partial under hood shots but no video. You can see the rain tray in place too.

Not sure how he knows, but 9.5:1 CR. Exactly what I guessed in the previous threads.

And that’s why a 5.0 with a whipple can make 700+ because of 12:1 CR.

This car might actually only make 720 hp like was said. “Twice the hp of the original GT500”.

I am still having a hard time with this thing being speed limited. Now its because the car isn't designed for high speed tracks??? I want the truth dammit. I'd really like to know. If something happens at high speed ( you know someone will remove the limiter immediately and try a high speed run) that causes turbulence around the car, or lift, or whatever, it sure would be nice to know.

You might as well wonder what's going on at KXTA, homey.

The guy in the video made at least two incorrect statements, but whatevs.
I don't have the bandwidth to watch it, what statements?

I guess that would be relatively easily fixed by using bolts with a proprietary head and supply a matching wrench. Kinda like a wheel lock nut.

I worked with this type of hardware in my career and it was the first thought in my mind when I saw closeups of the wing. The masses likely won't know about it and somebody is gonna get pinched.

I was told that at some point there was a directive within Ford styling that none of these fasteners be exposed. Looks like that flew out the window when the fender vents did.

Nice, love the carbon fiber against the orange, it both contrasts and compliments.

The Carbon package should come with an exposed CF hood vent :)
