    Wonder how many parts will transfer-able to the current models. Not just body parts but things like coolers and such.

    Is that all or is that all that is known at this time?

    Only stuff I could think of that would swap in without much drama/other associated hardware.

    Paddle shifters might swap over easily. Haha

    Since it seems Ford is using the same radiator support as the 350, 350 owners might be able to swap the hood without issue as well as a few coolers possibly.

    They could even likely do a full front clip with just needing bumper and fenders. (With their choice of hood). Of course all assumptions at this point.

    I would like to know if this is true. If they are actual metal, I would love to put these on my GT350R steering wheel.

    Not the front wheels unless you want them to stick out beyond your GT or GT350 fenders...

    Rubbing and clearance issues, chassis balance, alignment problems, looking stupid.

    I actually belive that gt350 headers will fit on the gt500. The stock seems to be the same. So I should be able to take my kooks off, and put them on the GT500. In theory that is. Along of course with the X pipe.

    David, I ran with your rationale and spent some time tracking down GT350 exhaust manifold photos that were similar in perspective to GT500 exhaust manifold photos. They look near identical to me and I think most would agree. I forwarded the question of a possible diameter difference to someone I think may have the answer. There could be an issue with longtubes designed for the GT350 not having ample clearance for the new GT500's DCT but that remains to be seen.

    In the following comparison photos you see a GT350 manifold on top and a GT500 manifold on bottom.
