Oh, cmon Steve the tranny is only around $25,000 and your cars are both worth at least $26,000 --- whoops, forgot about installation, haha.
Seriously both your machines are well worth more than that , but those sequential transmissions are pricey. It is a glorious sound that pairs so well with the Ford engine, kind of like an orchestral sound of music for the Machinehead!

I could sell the Boss then buy the Hollinger and put it in the space where the Boss was. At least I would still have something to drool over :p

That Hollinger sounds so nice.....and not having to deal with the notchy MT-82 would be a dream. But 25K for another "stupid car part" would get me an immediate divorce and then I wouldn't have a car either.

I believe there are a couple of other sequential options. I recall a very nice S197 build by Fall-Line Motorsports that used a sequential and it wasn't Hollinger. Would love to know if a bolt in kit is available.

Other trouble with Hollinger is a pretty short rebuild schedule that is pretty expensive.

Same as the FP350S motor, that one has a 40 hour rebuild interval that includes replacing pistons, rings, valves and a lot of other expensive stuff, almost everything but the block and heads. And the block is recommended to be replaced every 2 years.

People often overlook the cost of things down the road, the price to get in the door is only the start. I learned a long time ago that one of the most important things in racing cars is to have either deep pockets or access to someone who has deep pockets and wants to give you some of it.

But my god do those two things ever make beautiful music!

Just so. Buying a race car is just the beginning. The maintenance costs can exceed the cost of the car over time. An F1 car costs about $1000/lap in maintenance.

In the case of the GT4 I believe the transmission and engine service interval is 10K kms. The GT4 engine is a variant of the Aluminator motor, cross-plane rather than the flat plane crank. Reason: the GT4 series limits the car to about 450HP and there is no benefit to the extra revs the FP motor offers.

My first time back at Sonoma in over 2 years and I got a new PB! Beat my old time by 4 seconds. I almost got it down under 1:50 on the next lap but messed up coming out of Turn 7. Gonna have to wait until next time! My tires are getting close to end of life so I think with better driving and fresh tires I can definitely bring it down below 1:50 next time out. 🤞

Steve,
Did you break? That was a couple of awesome laps you put in, and I hope everything is OK.
No, I have a Mass Air correlation error P0068 that is either an air leak, a bad MAF sensor or a bad TB. Or someone suggested the JLT CAI may be allowing too straight a shot of airflow that when I close the throttle coming off the banking into turn one the air is bouncing off the throttle plate and passing back over the MAF. I think I have an air leak, have to track it down.

I guess the old trick of spraying ether is kind of tough to do at those speeds. Maybe I could ride on your hood and spray it as you lift at 167mph. I'll be sure to wear a helmet.:rolleyes:

Great meeting you Dennis - really enjoyed learning more about your Boss. Congrats on the PB! Are you signed up for Jan 9 & 10? Knocking on the door of 53’s, should be great weather to reset that PB if it isn’t raining!

Thanks Tom.......that PB is one third vehicle; one third luck and one third hanging out with helpful fellow Mustangers. You guys really helped me clean-up some bad habits in turns 5 & 6. I will not be there in January. I cancelled once Speed Ventures committed to a full year at Auto Club....figured to stretch out my track dollars throughout 2021. Looks like good weather and a sold out Speed Ventures event....enjoy!
