Ford Racing's IRS Cover

I ordered one of these about a month ago, little information was out about it. But, i just put it on the car yesterday. I am still unsure if anybody around here had seen it yet, but it was a vast improvement over the original piece. The amount of webbing offered is huge, and although I didn't weigh it, the Ford Racing piece's weight is about twice what the original aluminum cover's was. The drain plug alone is a nice feature to have.

So this was a bolt-on with no modifications needed.

Didn't really have any wheel hop before, but I had never gunned it from a dig with the 275 Nitto 555r's on the rear. The piece is a direct bolt in, no issues with the install.

From a dead stop on the street, the 555r's grip from a dead stop, even when snapping the throttle to full open. With traction control off and gunning it from a dead stop, they hook initially, spin just a touch from 4500 to 5000 RPM, and start to grip again on their own. On a well prepped track surface, I really think they won't slip at all when the tree turns green.

I am still running the stock rear mount with SCP's bushing set on the front of the housing. After beefing up the rear end, I didn't have any wheel hop at all and no signs of leaking around the seal from housing deformation like I had with the original piece and 245 BFG g-Force Super Sport A/S.
