Day 6 concludes Rally 13 for Lynn and I two weeks to the day when we left to attend. LaSalle Illinois to home in 5 hours. Total miles came out 4754 miles with not a single hitch with the GT, Big thanks to Dave and Chip for making this all happen.gt brechenridge.jpggt high desert.jpggt home.jpg

I wish I could have attended. Presheduled events prevented my participation. Looks like a great time was enjoyed by all!

Unfortunately, good things come to an end. Time to load up and head back to South Dakota.

I would highly recommend that any owner with a NGT buys some t-bolt clamps to avoid this from happening. Glass coverage will cover it but what a PITA to have to deal with that over $6-8.00 in clamps.. This is a frequent thing with the new GT and I can't believe that Ford thinks it's ok with the boost these put out to run a cheap worm gear clamp.

Literally a 10-15 minute install with simple tools to keep this from happening again.

First time I'm seeing this since I didn't go to the rally. With a NGT on the way I'd like to clarify. Is it a matter of the stock worm gear clamps failing and the intake tube striking the window that is causing them to break?

I was one of the first to break a bulk head glass.. Bought about 10 different sizes.. every one is too long or too short and too wide..
