OUCH... thats an ouch to the width and the tire... 555r's is what ya want. At least if your going to stick with nittos ( i would so your tires will match)... 555's are for front only imo... yes ya can put them on the back but they just dont grip like the R's do. Go with 315/35 555r's and call it a day... you get those tires warmed up or even if the sun is shinnying during a nice warm day you'll hook

what do you think of them? i guess if he doesnt care about matching his tires or spending the extra cash on 4 new tires than id suppose he should check out others... but the way i drive i have nothing bad to say about nittos.. mine have held up great on the street and are no doubt sticky when warm

+1 mine are great. No complaints, they stick in hard launches and have given me over 12k miles with plenty more to go.

All GTs came with anthracite Bullitt-style wheels unless you ordered the special wheel package that came with polished 01 cobra wheels (I think).
Your choice of wheels depends on what you plan to do visually. I have chrome cobra replicas because I tried to go with a classy, old school muscle look with the catchy wheels and cowl hood. I don't really track my car all that often, so wheel weight isn't a big issue for me.
You just have to think about what look you want (modern muscle with black/black chrome/gunmetal/hypercoated/white wheels, classic with chrome/machined wheels, flashy with one of the modern wheel colors, or whatever else). I REALLY think that 5-spoke wheels look the best on this body style. The most popular other options out there are SVE drift wheels, 10th anniversary cobra wheels, or GT supercar replicas. FR500s are seriously hit or miss, I know people that adore them and people that would rather have a spare tire than FR500s.
Ultimately, none of what I said really matters though. It's your car and you should do what you think looks the best. It may take a couple tries, It took me 2 wheels to finally settle on my chrome cobras, but you'll find one that just works and you won't care what anyone else says.

Hmmm..:that sounds like aftermarket parts to me. I don't know of any factory option for an aluminum tank lid. I'm not sure about the dash trim.
Got any pictures?

Smh at you people...



Upper and Lower Control arms
Quad shocks
Drag shocks and struts
Rear airbag
Drag radials or slicks
Subframe connectors full length

Etc.

That will help you somewhat

Obviously doing all of the race prep will help, we're not completely stupid. The issue is I doubt he has the money to do all of that at the moment.

If your running a 17x10 rear rim I recommend 315/35/17 Size rear drag radials

Mickeythompsons

And it probably shifts hard because it most likely has a shift kit in it , possibly with a stall converter.

That it solid mounts

I will take some when I get home Sunday. I just bought the car the guy who owned the car stroked the engine put twisted wedge heads and intake rebuilt trans, my buddy is a loan officer at the bank and told me about this car so I bought it I have pics of the inside on my profile and the nitrious kit I installed. What a idiot spent that much money and got it repoed. I work in the oil field I work 2weeks on and 1 week off. I have about ten grand to dump in it. It is pretty fast just won't hook off the line. I shoot a 150 dry shot before the mass air sensor but I don't juice it till it hits second gear.

If you've got 10k to drop in it, I definitely say do what Slow was talking about. Full subframe connectors, upper/lowers, adjustable panhard, better quad shocks, and some good tires.

I know Dallas isn't exactly right around the corner but, you could bring it here and take it to Dallas Mustang to get it dynoed.

You could also check with Texas Mustang Parts down there in Waco and see if they know a place around there.

Ok im going to help you a ton if your spraying first gear on the street. Best way to hook up in first on spray is to use a progressive nitrous controler system that will keep you from using your nitrous full force in first gear and will allow you to accelerate faster due to not having tire spin. Your next largest constributor and more expensive aproach to hooking up on nitrous will be improving tire type fallow by increased tire size. Then the next thing you can do if not already done is upper/lower control arms. And theres even more but that should really do it for you.

They should be able to help you out with everything. Give them a call and talk to Archie about the dyno time. Tell him I told you to call.

All GTs have Trac-LOK differentials. It's Ford's version of the GM posi differential. Both rear wheels spin.
V6 models all have an open diff from the factory.
