    Looks promising. I have the BF brace now but when I do my bushings this would be a perfect addition. Although I do like the look of the redfire diff brace even if you never really see it.

    A very effective cover. I don't know if the fore has the bearing cap support studs. If not this is the one to have. The bearing cap studs add a lot of support to the diff. along with the extra webbing ect.

    Me too. Plus I think I've found the diff cooler oil pump that I will be using. A friend of mine is using them in his BMW and Harley Motorcycle turbo kit scavenge systems. I am going to be rigging up a test fixture to test all three pumps for current draw with different AN sizes, and pumping gear oil, not engine oil.

    this looks like it will have more clearance for the diff bracket as well. i had to shave my lpw logo to get enough spacing for the bracket and bushing.

    Looks like the FRPP piece might hold more fluid as well.

    What was said above. I just got done dropping a ton of $ into building my IRS, no reason to skimp on $30 worth of bolts.

    The new Ford cover WILL work with our original Delrin rear diff support, part number FT 1300.

    We are making a minor modification to our Delrin isolated rear diff lowering mount FT 1400 so it also works.

    We will also be stocking the new FRPP rear IRS cover in the very near future.

    Yes, the connection locations look well placed. Ford did their homework on this.

    They've also marked an area for a temp sender but unfortunately it's not dirlled or tapped. But no biggie I say!

    Even without a dedicated spot for a temp sender, couldn't you use one of the fittings that has a 1/8" NPT female port, like for nitrous setups for a gauge to be put on there?

    Yes, absolutely. But only on the suction line.

    Just a heads up, the previous listed ARP bolts are too short. The bolts that come with the FRPP cover are 1.5" long not 1.25.

    I'll be getting the frpp cover when I do my full ftbr IRS bushing kit! I can't wait. Also going tO order the lube locker gasket. Not having to deal with lights sealant will make for a clean install in the future

    I got the Ford Racing Cover sitting here right next to my IRS I bought :banana:

    now the only part missing is the FTBR Kit, I have Kit FT5001 on my shopping list, this is the one that works with the Ford Racing cover, right?
    anything else I will need?
