Talking The bargain GT 350 Killer.

This build started with a stolen 2017 GT premium. The engine was destroyed, car otherwise fine, was bought from the insurance company for $10,000 US. GT premium W/performance pack and 6 speed. This is where it gets interesting. The owner didn't just want another GT, so he bought a cross plane 5.2 Aluminator XS engine from FP. ($19,999 US) It's a 580 HP beast and comes with all the engine goodies of a race engine. The transmission was opened up to be checked and billet shift forks and new synchros were added. You'll remember that 2017 was the last year with the preferred gear ratios for performance, and along with a 3:73 Torsen differential and FP HD axle shafts, and a twin disc clutch, was ready to do battle. Nitto DOT R compound tires were added to finish the build. The engine just drops in and plugs and plays with the 2017 wiring harness and computer, albeit with a FP tune.
The car was taken to the track for a shake down along with the 2011 Coyote I built some time ago, which is about 450 HP and is well sorted. After a couple of initial runs and a tire pressure and alignment tweak it was running over 2 seconds faster a lap than the 11. A GT 350 running at the same track was several tenths slower. The car is a total sleeper and runs on the street with no issues.




















So, true story, or my fantasy? Decide for yourself.

Looks like GANGS of fun to me. A ride for someone who wants the driving experience while not attracting attention. I can only imagine how puzzled those familiar with engine sounds will be while lo0oking at the car yet hearing that cross plane sound.

Remember cross planed is the more common type with throws at 90 degrees apart, where the flat planed crank the throws are at 180 degrees apart. (like the GT 350 or Ferrari) Cross planed crank is easier to balance.

My goof! I read cross plane and my (wishful?) mind converted it to flat crank. Still, somebody getting one hell of a bang for the buks spent.

Imagine if this thing shows up at a lapping day. Leather seats, AC, nav system. Only giveaway is the roll bar and the 6 pt harnesses. Stock exhaust except for axle back Dynomax stainless mufflers.

Amazing that a street legal car can now turn lap times of a former GT-2 purpose built race car.

First to find the candidate car...one with a Torsen rear end and only a ruined engine. Whew, that would be more difficult to find than the specific old transistor radio Jimbob wants...

Love the "sleeper" look, some are going to get a rude wake up call
