This is weird on your oil temps. My completely stock motor has never exceeded the third tick mark on the factory gauge (265F) here in TX. Is the factory gauge inaccurate?

My take is Ford needs the GT350 to steal some thunder from the Camaro debut, but mostly to deal with the fact that Ford does not have a Corvette competitor. The market for $50K + cars is different,...

Sounds like the power steering pump. Try checking the fluid level. It may need changing.

Anyone want a FI track car?? Anyone.. Bueller?? Weight, power delivery, simplicity all favor the LS7. You don't need over about ~500 hp IMO. I am still seeing problems with the LT4 blowing up. ...

Synthetic fluids should help a lot. Going to ATF will get you a little boost in viscosity. 5w-20 oil might work too. Example:

Viscosity at 100 deg C (212F):

PS fluid: 7.1
ATF: 7.4
5w-20:...

Yes that was my assessment too. The standard SS suspension has too much body roll but the rest of the car very good.

I added the 1LE rear stabilizer bar and that fixed the body roll for me. ...

Thanks for the clarifications and great pic. Oil cooler looks a lot like the LS3 version. I wonder if one of the 3 radiators is mostly dedicated to the oil.

I still think HTHS is the best measure rather than viscosity because it is a shear or film strength test. My Pennzoil ultra Euro L is 5w-30 with an HTHS of 3.68. I use this track and street.
