    We have a double adjustable Penske based coilover package for the F355 coming out next week. This is our street/track package with a full track package with new mounts coming out 3 weeks later.

    Our second product is a DOT approved stainless steel brake line kit manufactured by goodridge for the F355. They will be added to the site next week with better photos and full details with pricing. A complete exhaust system, programable engine management system, and roll bar will be released later this month.

    If one divided the spring rate of the stock springs by the spring rate of these new springs what would be the resulting numbers: front and rear?

    The numbers would be of no comparison to a stock system. There are to many changes in the overall design of the package to compare them.

    I think that ecu programing will start to show significant HP gains with exhaust and intake bolt-ons. I really don't think much of bolt-ons without ecu re-programing. Do you have any test numbers on HP/Torque yet or maybe a dyno graph? Is this for both 2.7 and 5.2 motronics?

    Exhaust parts and graphs will be released in the following order. Muffler, Y-pipe, Cats, Exhaust manifolds.

    There was no gain in power from repairing damaged exhaust manifolds at all. With a stock exhaust system the car gained 28 whp by fully removing the muffler. There is power to be gained by increasing flow. The intake system was tested with no restriction. Air boxes and Maf screens by-passed with fans blowing into the engine bay. There was not a single gain in power. The 2.7 intake system is perfect from the factory.

    ECU programming has shown impressive results. Its been very hard to stay silent these past two months. The f355 is a great platform to work with and we are very excited to release products to market this summer.

    Love what you're doing for the 355 but wanted to point out that D.O.T. (NHSTA for these purposes) does NOT approve or disapprove aftermarket brakes hoses or any other parts.


    "Does NHSTA “approve” vehicles and equipment?
    No. NHTSA relies on self-certification. It does not require submission of any documentation regarding the safety of aftermarket parts unless it is triggered by an investigation...

    Is “DOT-approved” a legal term?
    No, NHTSA has no authority to "approve" or "disapprove" vehicle equipment. The equipment is self-certified. Sometimes the term is confused with the DOT symbol, which is required to be placed by the manufacturer on certain items of equipment such as headlamps. This is simply an affirmative statement by the manufacturer that the equipment is compliant with an applicable NHTSA rule."
    http://www.sema.org/federal-regulation-aftermarket-parts


    " (a) The symbol DOT constituting certification by the hose assembler
    that the hose assembly conforms to all applicable motor vehicle safety
    standards."

    Sorry about that you are correct. Goodridge tests these lines to be fully compliant with DOT Standards (MVSS-1006).

    Every spring has a spring rate, and every spring+shock package has the shock matched to the sping rate. You will not be changing the geometry of the suspension movements, thus all the geometyrical multipliers that convert spring rate to wheel rate remain constant. Thus, it is unreasonable to assert that the spring rate of your package cannot be compared ot the spring rate of the stock car.

    Plus, you have to know what the spring rates of your springs are. Or do you?
