mmmm..droool....mmmm

Here is a link with alot of the up-coming spec's for the New GT40. What I found interesting was that it says the GT40 will get a EATON 2300 "screw-type" blower and dual fuel injectors per cylinder!!!! Things are certainly going to get VERY interesting, VERY soon!!!

Here is the link to the article: http://media.ford.com/translate/pres...845&make_id=92

Re: mmmm..droool....mmmm

Ohhh the possibilities for that donk.

I may as well state what all the Aussie's are thinking...

US GT4O <===> GTHO Aussie

See the similarities - they could even use the same decals & badges with just a minor touchup.
