They got Dan Gurney in the GT40.   They had to put a blister in the roof so his helmet would fit.  The GT was 44" high. If you want one bad enough.  Diet and or have the seat redone to drop you that extra 2".  There is about 4"of molded foam for a seat pan.

got my Boss 9 and I know where there is a couple 427 cammers I could lay my hands on if need be,,,I have many BBF strokers here if need be to replace the 7.3 but more than likely I will just rebuild the one in the truck when the time comes....

3.5L twin-turbo V6 EcoBoost engine. The specifications for the World Endurance Championship's LM GTE class give turbo engines a maximum 4.0L displacement. Coincidence? I think not.

Maybe they should offer a Twin turbo V8 option as a GT version of the GT. V6 base model, and the GT GT version a V8. Laughing

It does sound like ass. Maybe they could also put some speakers inside the center of those circular taillights to blast out some V8 noises.

Nobody said you get a hit on your rig. Straight up just like they left the line.

Dents on a golf ball make it fly better, and everyone knows a glide is a race trans, still no hit.

Probably do not want to get azz handed from the older models, but the older ones were awesome, a blown 5.4 is a pretty capable beast in the right hands with the right adjustments. If the Blue Oval is willing to stick a six shooter in it I have to believe enough as a die hard fan that it will rock and roll all night. I hope I am not embarrassed by there choice but it should embarrass them more then me...in theory...oh and by the way doesn't Chip G wear a bowtie...FU&

Granted, it doesn't sound that cool at idle and you can hear those turbo's spooling Cool , but that engine does have  some big balls and I would be willing to bet it sounds bad azz winding up through all 7 gears Twisted Evil .

True, but it has a $64,965 msrp and with 6.5% sales tax it would come to $69,187.73 + doc, license etc.. Ford says it's a $70,000 pick up. Not to mention the other options that are required to make it a real work truck. Fuel tank, gooseneck hitch, air bags, ladder rack, tool box, jotto desk, bed mat, radar detector.

Don't get me wrong, I like the truck, I just think it stinks that the government has mandated that I be stuck on the side of the road if there is a piss malfunction. Something that has nothing to do with the drivability of the vehicle.
