    Even next to the La Ferrari the Ford GT is clearly a much more thought out purpose built machine. It sit's lower and so focused and aero efficient what a machine!!

    Nautoncall No harm no foul. I think it was an innocent question given that this is black magic to those of us over 50! As this is a car forum I will keep this brief. Think of Youtube as TV for people under 40 (for the most part) Certainly people under 30 use Youtube as their source for information and entertainment considerably more than traditional TV. The advertising model however is strikingly similar. As a new "youtuber" starts a channel when he/she gets to a point of having enough views of his/her videos he/she can "apply" to monetize the "channel." Youtube determines if it's enough views (daily, monthly, cumulatively) and then OK's the channel for monetization. This happens thru a "vehicle" called "Google AdSense" (In case you didn't know, Google owns Youtube.) Google sells ad space on popular channels the same way ABC, NBC and CBS does for their shows. Popular shows like "This is us" or Judge Judy get paid more for 15,or 30 seconds then less popular shows. It's the same on Youtube. Parker has ads that run on his Chanel during videos. As he has gotten more popular over the last few years the rate at which the ads pay for exposure on his videos has gone up. Pretty simple really. He can also be approached independently by any manufacturer that wishes to "buy" time and work out a deal for a specific Promo during a video. Examples of this on his channel are Dollar Shave Club, Vincero watches or most recently Bosch. I hope this helps. Cheers,
    John

I've pointed out before in another thread that boosted engines do not respond much to exhaust mods. When you're boosting the air in the intake, efficient exhaust scavenging makes little difference. One mod that might make a difference is removing the cats. However, then it won't pass emissions and I'm sure it would also invalidate warranty. Let someone else learn the hard way.

    If you like the different sound of some other exhaust system (X, H, etc.), that's a fair reason to buy it, but don't expect any more power from it.

    I am no expert, but in my limited experience I think you are correct to not mod the exhaust on turbo cars. On one of my cars, if you change the exhaust the turbo characteristic changes dramatically, often for the worse with early overboost problems. If you do decide to swap to straight pipes or some low flow exhaust, you usually have to tune that particular car. I'd imagine the NFGT is even more complicated when it comes to back pressure, anti lag tech, etc. Considering everyone has said it is loud and awesome, I think stock is a safe bet as well. I cant wait to hear one in person!

    I was a little skeptical of "another Ford GT video" but VV did a really great job. He really covered the history of the car very well. The ride along and commentary of John Hennessey was a great plus.

    Is it true that you have to go through a second round of vetting to be allowed to buy a Heritage? Wonder how that works.
