    05/06 GT or 2017-21 GT

    Side by side at a car show my ‘21 model will draw more attention and win more trophies every time. It’s an amazing piece of engineering and design and I’ll probably never sell it. I still feel proud and honored to have been chosen to own one. But it’s a race car modified for the street. My ‘06...

    What have you done with your new Ford GT?

    I never understood that. I’ve never had a scratch or damage of any kind done by a kid I let sit in any of my cars. And even if I did, so what? It’s a car, not the Mona Lisa! If you’re lucky enough to be able to afford a car in this price range you should be generous enough to share it with those...

    What have you done with your new Ford GT?

    Local charity car show with about 90 cars. Let over a dozen kids sit in the car for photos. Raised some money for Alzheimer’s research, won Best Exotic and hopefully encouraged some future car nuts. Even made the local newspaper. That’s what qualifies as a good day.👍

    That pic was taken by Multimatic during the assembly. They supply several build pics since they don’t allow photographs in the shop.

    Any advantage to ethanol free gas?

    When I started this thread I had no idea it would lead to so much information but I’m glad it did. Thanks guys. 👍

    Any advantage to ethanol free gas?

    At the risk of showing my ignorance, I’m going to ask Indy GT one more question. Using your race gas chart at the bottom of your post, and using the (R+M)/2 formula, am I right in noticing that as the ethanol content increases the octane rating goes up but the power goes down? I know enough to...

    Any advantage to ethanol free gas?

    OMG! That was more than I bargained for but very informative. Very detailed response. Thank you. But you made my mind up when you pointed out the gas cap door approved 91 octane😆 Corn is for eating!

    Radiator ID

    Oh I see. That’s cool. No, it was a legitimate question. Which radiator is which?

    Well, I don’t know whether to be insulted or pissed off by that response so for right now I’ll just be confused.

    I think these radiators at the rear of the car are for transmission, differential , oil…. But which is which? I know the ones for the intercooler but not the rest.

    Any advantage to ethanol free gas?

    The problem with water absorption and deterioration of fuel systems in older cars (and boats) is well known but my question was in reference to my 2021 GT. I gather there is no downside to the ethanol itself but what about the 2 point octane reduction from 93 to 91? Is the new GT going to adjust...

    Any advantage to ethanol free gas?

    I have the option in my area to buy ethanol free gas (although it’s only 91 octane) and I use it in my twin turbo ‘06. Is there any advantage to using it in my 2021 NFGT?

    Finally after 16 years I am an owner

    Congratulations. You’ll love it. I’ve had my twin turbo for 15 years and I’ve never felt out of control even when doing 223 mph at the Texas Mile. (But I was never stupid enough to punch it in a curve)! BTW, if my car will do it, theres no reason yours won’t. Even if you never get the chance...

    Congratulations on the article Rich. You’ve been famous with the GT forum crowd for years but now the rest of the car world knows about you. Glad I got my car to you before the waiting line gets ridiculous!
