Pros: What do you like about your 2008 Ford Shelby GT 500?
The speed and handling are excellent.
The design eludes to the nostalgic appearance of the original pony cars of the late 60's and early 70's. Truly a time machine.
Cons: How would you improve your 2008 Ford Shelby GT 500?
What I have done:
1. Change the rear end to a 3:73
2. Straight drive shaft (aluminum)
3. Cold Air induction
4. Shorty Shifter
5. Shorty Headers
6. Ford Racing Exhaust
7. Solid Control Arms and lowered the car 2 to 3 inches
8. Changed clutch due to tech bulletin
9. Changed all filler caps to Shelby chrome
10.Changed tires to B. F. Goodrich unidirectional street radials
Future changes anticipated:
1. New Kenny Bell Supercharger
2. New Suspension
2008 Ford Shelby GT 500 Review:
This is a great car, after the changes were made, the car will run the 1/4 mile at 128 mph at 11.8 sec. It's actually faster but it is impossible with street tires to get it to hook up with the 3:73. This car is an absolute dream to ride and drive. The car easily accelerates to 100 mph and with the 6 speed transmission 150 mph does not create any strain on the motor.
This car is a time machine with the Sirus stereo system, turn on the 70's and back you go..I will never sell this car, It will almost be to the same caliber as the Super Snake when I am finished. It is driven only a couple of times a month.
