    I have a 2017 GT PP 6 spd and went with Blowfish Racing. I posted pictures in my thread “S550 HPDE Prep - Need advice”. Pics and discussion in page 4. Sorry, I don’t know how to link directly to it.

    I haven’t had to use the tow hook yet, but I think it looks good and seems to be well made. Note: I do plan to add a tow hook of some sort to the rear of the car. You might cringe at this, but I’m considering installing a hitch receiver and just inserting a tow ring in that. Everything else I’ve looked at requires some type of change to the bumper cover or reverse light that I don’t want to make.

    Good luck with it.

    I had the ZL1 front tow hook and unfortunately I can confirm it works fine. I like the way Steve @Blowfish designed his tow hooks but he never made one for a GT350 so I went with the ZL1 instead.

    I went with the ZL1 center mount. It looks great, but drilling through the bumper takes some time. Buttonwillow M6G 2.jpg

    Yeah I also saw that the Blowfish one can't be used with the 350's. Is it simply the size and shape of the crash beam? Could the bracket be modified, or do we know if they're planning on releasing a GT350/R specific one?

    I don’t think he has any immediate plans to make one for the GT350. The air deflectors for the radiator are part of the problem.
