    Hello Forum members. I'm finally ready to replace all my failed gauges on my '05 GT. I've acquired new fuel, engine temp and boost gauges from Autometer. I now need to source a new speedometer. Does anyone have a good (best price) source they can recommend? Also, some time ago, there was a...

    Accufab Install

    Fellow members, With the help of Bill (FFCobra) I installed the Accufab X-pipe yesterday. The most difficult part of the install is removing the original muffler. In my case this was made MUCH easier by the use of Bill's 4-post lift which was excellent. Removing the clamshell helps a lot and...

    More tchotchkes!

    I obtained these chrome caps from They're actually for a Mustang but they fit the GT perfectly. They have less "bling" and are less expensive than the similar FRPP pieces. Eric

My questions is, how do you disconnect the clam from the hydraulic struts that hold the clam open? Do you remove the three bolts and the plate that connect to the clam? or...

    Another subtle model year difference

    By now, I'm sure many forum members know the front radiator grille was omitted on 2006 cars. I recently noticed that the the brackets that secure the oil resevoir to the frame are BLACK on 2006 cars and GRAY on 2005. Has anyone noticed any other subtle model year differences? Eric

    Poor Man's Transaxle Cooler

    Forum Members, One of the surest methods to solve the transaxle venting problem is to install the Ford Racing Performance Products (FRPP) transaxle cooler for the GT. However at $1,300 it was a little too much for what I was willing to pay to solve this problem. Therefore I set out to rig up my...
