ScaleMotorSport.com has some really good quality stuff. They have yellow kevlar as well.

I gave up looking for it. I am going to try some red primer from Scale Finishes.

I think you can expect that a turbo charger on a 4 to bring it up to normally aspirated V6 power is going to negatively affect the longevity of the motor. that is pretty much how it always plays out especially considering most who buy a "turbo" are going to be lead footing it a lot. the V6 strains way less and probably puts out more HP on a consistent basis than does the turbo 4. and with a better spread of power range. my guess would be that the 4 really strains up to about 3k rpm and then the turbo kicks in to pretty instantly bring you to red line. the V6 is probably smooth power all the way from idle to redline.

 

looks like a nice car harry, "arrest me" red and all. I had no idea ford was even offering a four cylinder in a car like this. I assumed they were all V8s or at least V6s.

This would be the case with any engine, and adding forced induction, but I doubt it affects the longevity when the engine is designed to be turbocharged. Lower compression pistons, different injector duty cycles, etc. Time will tell.

They have gone up in value quite a bit, definitely a collector's car at this point.

 

The Heritage ones I have seen go for $500k+ especially with low mileage.
