    Great pic...
    Dumb question, I assume all s550 shelby Mustangs came with 3" wheels studs?

    From the tag on the engine, I would assume it is for a pre-production build.

    It was for a PP car. The wheel studs for the CF TP cars will be longer than the base or handling package cars due to the thickness of the CF wheel hub. Not certain yet as to length.

    Great pic, monster Brakes, impressive air inlet(size) and already LTH for the win!

    Makes me want one but I will be a single man if I tried!LOL. So will keep my slow/outdated 13' for 2 more years or so!

    I noticed something looks different from all other S550 iterations, including the GT350. The front link or control arm, with a silver or natural finish...I don't think Ford has switched to an aluminum forging and it may just be an uncoated steel forging but I'm keeping my eye on it. If you study the area very carefully where the 3 bosses are for the deflector to mount, you can see that the arm "body" or configuration is different too.

    What you'd typically see...

    The top link looks like it might be a casting and the bottom link looks more like a forging.

    The bottom link is a forging.

    If the top link was aluminum there is no way it would be a mere casting.

    Pressure die casting? If it were aluminum, you would think it would be a little beefier than a forged steel part.

    That's a good point. They are or were supposed to be aluminum with a natural finish. The linked engine appears to show black polymer ones.

    Never lay all your eggs in one basket. Never show your full hand. Ford is much smarter than you give credit

    This is what they showed originally. I like the Aluminum (silver) valve covers with the black coil covers. It makes it standout from the other engines.
