Does Ford still sell a factory racecar the unwashed masses can buy? I think the run of FP350s' was quite short like 100 cars and the BMW 235i was also like 100 cars and few ever made it to the USA. It seems that your only choice today is the porsche GT3 Cup or factory sponsored build of the MX5-cup at 1/2 the price. The Mx-5 got expensive when the sequential box was added and a new builder was contracted.

there are plenty of used ones out there, that may be a less expensive way to go
they also make an SCCA version of this as well that's considerably cheaper, I think they are both available, next thing would be to buy a body in white and have someone build it, or buy a salvage title car.

The FP350s is sold out as far as I know. It is a bargin @115k still listed on the old FP website.

Does Ford make a barebones motorsports or hotrod harness for the gen3 coyote motor or eboost? Chevy used to make one for the LS motors used for restomods and racecars. You buy the harness right from the chevy performance catalog where you buy LS crate motors.

I think one if the shortcomings of building racecars from street cars is all the wiring you cannot delete. For example I still need to retain the 7 security system antennas on my 2019 GT racecar or it will not start! All this orphan electronics is heavy and a fire Hazzard.

If this is the car I'm thinking of, it's a very nice piece.. check with Fabman.
The stuff from Cali (IMO) is either real nice, or crap, so it pays to check on the history. Also, I think Phoenix has some t3 cars for sale.

Either that's a total steal or something is seriously wrong with it. Gear box and engine alone are worth $40k!
