Complete Track setup, S-197, 05-14
I'm going to post a complete set up for S-197's that I know works and is street able. This particular set up is from a 2011 GT that was purchased with tracking in mind. Set up initially was for Mosport, Watkin's Glen, Road Atlanta
The car: 2011 GT, 6 spd M-82, no options except 3.73 Differential. Coyote V8
Engine Mods: Power Pack: 93 Octane tune, GT 500 mufflers, K&N filter, Ford racing oil filter. FP X pipe, Mobil 1 5W30, Morosso drain able oil separator. On 94 Octane, makes about ~450 HP. Stop tech 600 F Brake fluid. Change trans. fluid to Dexron/Mercon 5. (came with gear lube, changed due to TSB, shifts much better)
The suspension: FP MFR3A-MGTAA Lowers about 1 inch. Includes: Strut tower brace, Front struts/springs, Adjustable shocks, Adjustable sway bars with bushings and hdw., rear adj. shocks/springs, adjustable panhard bar. Modified struts for "crash bolts" for camber adjustments. Alignment settings: Camber 1 1/2 deg. neg., Caster 7 deg. pos. Toe in 1/16" total. (Shocks set at #3-4 turns front and rear. 0=soft, 6 full hard) (Front and rear bar on middle setting)
Brakes: Front 14" Brembo FP upgrade kit. Pads Hawk HPS or HP+ or Yellow stuff, front and rear, street and lapping. For more track hours switch to Hawk Street and Race. (Pads that come with kit good for street, OK for limited lapping)
Wheels and Tires: BBS 9.5 X 18 w 275-40-18 Nitto R compound, or 555's. The Nitto 555's wear quite well, not as grippy as R compound. (Tend to be noisy) Toyo 888 or 888R work well also.
Other: Auto Power roll bar w/harness bar. 5 point harness, remove back seat and spare tire, Back seat replacement cover. Dynamat floor under back seat and in trunk.
Total cost ~ $10,000.00+ Street drawbacks are that the sway bars are clunky, and the pads are a little noisy, ride is quite acceptable. And it's a lot of money! And, no back seat.
"Bargain version": Tokico adj. shocks, (Alignment set up) Stock brakes with slotted rotors, Hawk or Yellow stuff pads, UHP street tires, BFG, Michelin?? Oil separator. Total cost ~$2500+
So, on an 08 Bullit you could do this whole package and it would work very well. The so called bargain version would give you a good improvement. Bill is going to give me his set up, that he has developed during over 40 track days, which one of us will post.
I'd like to hear from someone with an 01 Bullit, who has a set up that they like? Post as a reply.

In my defense, I was left unsupervised.
