    SPFMK2 Coil over swap

    Dear 40 Forum folks, My stock "Bilstein" front shocks gave up on me. The plan is to go up 50lbs spring front and rear and do a double adjustable and realignment, hopefully minus the bump-steer. Is there a make of coil-over that is a straight swap or is it a custom size? Any guidance would be...

    SPF Headlight alternative

    Greeting, Was wondering if anyone had found a decent replacement/alternative/upgrade for the factory Superformance headlights. Not sure if all the SPF cars come with garbage lights or I just got a Friday car. Oddly the fog lights are nice and bright. Cheers Callaghan

    Hateful 8, a painful update

    Hateful 8, a hard won '40 for an FNG

One of the things I learned (of the uncountable lessons) is that this is a car you must earn. At least in my case. But, by all accounts it has made it a real adventure I never saw coming. So...

    Power choices

    I've recently placed an order for a SPF Mk2 GT40 and am trying to come to a decision on power. Looking at Shelby, Windsor, and Roush. I've heard some issues with aluminum blocks have risen recently but nothing first hand. I would very much appreciate some guidance from the learned crowd. I have...
