    Same here, hoping rear seat delete can be added as well. No need for the CF wheel premium and while I like the CF wing I think the swing spoiler with the Gurney Flap will do just fine.

    I think there’s a few colors that just kill it with this car.

    I wish the steering wheel was D-shaped. Car is looking better and better though.

    Yeah, would be nice if we could pick and choose options, but past has shown we will need to order in packages, and sounds like the track pack will be allocated, just like the 350R.
    I'd like a rear seat delete as well, with aluminum rims and carbon fiber wing.

    With the 2020 GT350 limited to 2000 cars and GT350R limited to 800, seems like counting on MSRP on these units might be a mistake too...

    I am surprised Ford is limiting the 350's, but I like it ;-)

    depending on actual pricing, i may order CF package.. Id gladly trade you the rear seat delet for seats, as thats the only reason ( other than $) that I dont want CF pack

    Also for the price of that wing and wheels (depending on the package cost) most likely will be money ahead by getting the CF TP and buying a second trunk lid. Can choose the spoiler of you’re liking and sell the OEM for more.
    Should know soon!

    I actually like the wing and definitly wheels since its a weekend car, rear seat delete is only downside and dont feel like waiting for an add-back option with the mrs already huffing about buy more car stuff

    How often do you actually use the back seat? I have small kids so I do from time to time, so it’s something I want.
    We can agree to disagree on the wing, my street can have a parachute before that noise.

    My kid is 6 and has never been in the back seat of any of my fun/race cars, so id say its a rather big deal. even though i plan bringing rwhp up to 8-900 in this thing, id like to be able to take him/the family places on nice days without the hassle of swapping delete and seats back and forth

    Then either don’t buy the CF TP, or buy it and add in the rear seat.
    My son turned 6 today and my 2014 was built the same week of his birth in 2013.
    So, I get it.
    Plus, you don’t want an 800+rwhp 4000+# track car.
    Listen, I get you and many of us want the highest option car, but cmon man, you lose me on the whole rear seat thing. Be happy with what we’re getting, and if it doesn’t fit exactly what you want, then recognize it’s a Mustang and do the Mustang thing and Mod it to what you want.
    And BTW, my son likes the Hellcat more than the Shelby, because it rides nicer. I have some work to do.

    ^^^^There's still testing to do on the TP cars, they need to pass the "leave parked outside overnight and still retain the rear spoiler and CF wheels" test.

    If it passes that test...……….it's a go.

    I like the orange, just a bit too much 'pop' for me. I'll probably do a blue with white stripes.

    A shot from Evan Smith where you can see the airbox lid has been tweaked yet again.

    zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.jpg

    Compare the above lid to an earlier, "smooth" version...

    zzzzzCapture.JPG


    Again, look closely at Evan's photograph. It's a poor shot in low resolution but if I'm not mistaken, I see a passenger side oil separator. Follow the line from the valve cover to what appears to be a somehwat triangular box with bolts on top and a line that returns vapor to the intake tract at the throttle body...

    zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz1111.jpg

    This piece has not been seen before on any of the mules we've had the opportunity to look at. Typically this has been an open area without the above part. Here's how the mules have looked so far in that area...

    zzzzsCapture-Edit.JPG


    And it looks as if Ford now has a small plate attached to the STB as well...

    zzzzzzzzzzzzz Grabber Lime GT5001.jpg


    Inching closer and Ford looks to have been busy with some finishing touches. I hope the separator makes production.

    A better shot that shows it more clearly. It is indeed an oil separator!

    zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz oil sep.jpg


    Question is, will it be a part you can buy from Ford Performance (FRPP of old) or is Ford actually going to include them as an OEM part on all of these badboys? My sense is the former.
