  1. I believe I read it in the Ford service manual? but don't recall exactly where I found it.
  2. For my 07 SGT I just took the cooling scoop to the hardware store and fit grade 8 bolts, nuts and lock washers. Found the torque rating in some Ford publication and all fits like a glove. You will have to use a piece of thick cardboard when changing the oil to create a 'slide' as the oil from the oil pan will shoot into the scoop if not diverted.
  3. The one time I tracked my SGT was at the Indianapolis Speedway during the MCA open track event, I babied the brakes so I didn't experience brake fade. I find the stock brakes to be average or below. Thought the coolers may increase braking during spirited street driving?
  4. Appreciate all the feedback on the driving lights. My next question: Do the brake coolers have any noticeable effect on increasing the factory rotors/pads stopping power?
  5. I've read from others the driving lights don't stay aligned? Are they at all useful?
  6. Great! Just ordered both. Given those fog lights are no longer made, can you produce/offer an extra set of plastic inserts like the ones for the brake duct side? Sure wouldn't want an open hole where the lights would/should go.
  7. The idea of cruising around this great country having fun looking for cool toys sounds very appealing! You have a great 'plan' for fun. Safe travels!
  8. I've used Adam products for a number of years and really like them. Tried Groit's a few years ago and switched back to Adams.
  9. Last time I saw CSX2000 was at Laguna Seca a few years ago and the car looked untouched-seats were ripped. It looked great.
  10. I hope when the parts become available there is some notification on TS.
  11. Great! Hope brake ducts make the cut!
  12. Looks like CJ Pony Parts has the cheapest SGT replacement M-18000-A (free shipping as well). Also got the Ford Performance Handling Pack Fasteners Kit as I'm not sure which bolts are TTY. Not a cheap item to put in 'inventory' for a rainy day. However, good to have when the originals fail.
  13. Justin Understand and don't doubt they work. As mentioned, if you can remanufacture the 'Shelby Parts' to original specs, that would be great.
  14. Justin: What I'm seeking is the Shelby GT brake cooling kit (pictures attached to my original post) offered by Shelby American in their parts catalog of 2008. The parts description from the Shelby catalog identifies "the backing plate that channels air through the center of the rotor cooling the bearing> This is unlike our competitors that just force air into the rotor face." What you are offering in the carrollshelbyracing.com link is the same brake cooling kit from lethalperformance.com (they offer free shipping). In fact, your write up and pictures are exactly the same as their site. It would be great if your organization would remanufacture some of the more popular parts from those catalogs (thinking lower grill for GT's, front grills, engine caps) that some of the folks on this site are having trouble finding.
  15. It would be great if Carroll Shelby Racing' could offer these kinds of products.
