I remember reading several things from various sources about differences in the Bullitt and GT. One was the Cobra 11" clutch. Can we verify that as being correct? If so then it must have an 11" flywheel, which would likely be sourced from the Cobra as well. Here is where I have some more questions. As far as I know the Romeo 2V motors have 6 flywheel bolts, the Cobra has 8 from what I have heard. 1999-2000 Windsor 2V's had 8, but 2V production went back to Romeo in 2001. What crankshaft is in this engine? If it needs 8 bolts, is it a Cobra crank or a Windsor crank. A lot of times there are too many variances to use parts from one factory in another factory's block.

I also remember someone posting on Corral, almost a year ago, a part number for the Bullitt crankshaft. That does sound like it may be specific. What is it? I also remember rumors of it having the Cobra windage tray, any truth to that?

I believe all Bullitts have the 11" Cobra clutch assembly. I do not know about the windage tray though.

Does everyone know that the Bullitt oil filler tube is on the DRIVERS SIDE as to the regular GT having the oil filler on the passenger side.

I belive our intake came from Ford Racing before the FR500 came about. There was onr gent that stated that he worked for the company that made our intakes.
Mr.T... Help!!!!

The Bullitt intake is different from the one that's been in the FRPP catalog for two years... that one was designed to fit the 96-98 engines, not the ones with the PI heads.

The FR500 intake is radically different. It's a dual throttle body, dual MAF, magnesium intake for the DOHC heads.


I am also now very curious about which crankshaft is in my Bullitt. There's no doubt the clutch is a vast improvement over the GT (at least its way better than the one in my old '00 GT). If my car has a forged crank too that's just major bonus points!

In mid 2001 all gts and bullits have the tremec trans and the 11 inch flywheel, my buddy has an 02 gt, clutch and tranny exactly same as my bullitt. I also am dobting that my bullitt has underdrive pulleys, they look to be the same as my buddys as well. Also think the rumor about different heads is just that a rumor. My bullitt did have 10 more hp and lbs of torque than his though, all across the board

IIRC, all Bullitt engines were built in windsor, which means 8-bolt cranks (don't quote me, I'm going from memory) the underdrive pulley thing, is in relation to the alternator and waterpump pulleys. The alternator is the same as on the Cobra, and compared to the GT alternator, it is underdriven (15% IIRC, but again, I'm not 100% sure on the exact #) the water pump may have a slightly underdriven pulley on there as well.
The Bullitt does not have unique heads, they are the same as the GT.
The SVO intake that has been in the FRPP catalog for some time is not the same manifold as the Bullitt, though the overall design is similar.

The Bullitt water pump pulley is slightly larger in diameter,than the GT pulley,to turn the pump slower. About 5 inch dia.for the GT. 5.5 inch dia. for the Bullitt. The Steeda water pump pulley is bigger yet at 6 1/4 inch,I believe. Would be nice to have that forged crank in there,with a windage tray.

Rara, I think all Bullitt engines come from the Romeo plant. Look at the barcode sticker that is on the lower part of your valve cover. It it says "REP" it comes from the Romeo Engine Plant.

When 227 had to get a new Engine, I sent an eMAIL to Art Hyde. He told me it was a brand new engine from Romeo. All Bullitts have Romeo Engines. Now what is inside I am not 100% sure about :wink:

Hope this helps.

Isn't there someone who could do a little recon work via the phone at the Romeo plant. why is it so difficult to find out what we have????

Could we tell if our crank is forged or not simply by looking??

Rara, Art Hyde of Team Mustang confirmed to me many months ago that the Bullit does have the Power Improved heads. GT's do not.

And yes, the Bullitt does have a windage tray.

We also have the previous Cobra's twin 57mm throttle body.

TXBulitt,

How do you know we have a windage tray? Has anyone droped the oil pan and looked. If so we should be able to tell about the crank from the casting/forging marks at the seam.

Ah, so much mystery,seems like ford could have just gave us the mufflers and a k&n and we still would have had 10 more hp than a gt, but im not complaining, its still a sweet car.

The windage tray was referenced one of the many Bullitt articles comparing the Bullitt to the GT. It appeared in one of the Sept. or Oct. issues in a discussion of the oil pick-up.
