"I own CF 21. I love the car but it has ideosyncracies. I've replaced the sills and had a new rear bumper installed because of excessively mediocre steel used by Frua. The engine compartment is blazing hot on warm days, so the foot boxes become painful. I shall insulate them. Aerodynamics are obsolete, so speeds above 140 mph (indicated) in a crosswind make for a more interesting ride; the front end gets light, thus a subtle front airdam may be appropriate.

I have removed the original totally stock 428 and replaced it with a side-oiler 427 + tube headers which must be at least 150 lbs lighter than the 428 (427 has aluminum heads and intake). I am replacing the brass 4-row radiator with an aluminum 3-row design to save another 40 lbs. and increase cooling (with new elec. fans). Cooling is also helped by Cobra remote oil cooler and finned aluminum 7-qt sump pan.

Future plans are to replace 2.88 Hardy-Spicer differential with 3.56
and torsen limited slip. Andy Sheppard will see me coming..."
