    2020 Shelby GT500 PRICING (MSRP/Invoice) Including Packages & Options

    Nope, this is my $76k '19 M7 2LZ on a track outing. And Jim Mero drove one of these to a 7:10 time at the N'Ring. Fastest guy on the track that day (busy day) was a 71 year old guy driving track spec BMW - I was second. Update your stereotypes.

    I liked the styling too... Liked the exhaust sound, the different engine architecture, meshing with fond memories of Shelby when I was a little kid and my neighbor had one. But that's over now. I did a lot of pretty competitive club racing over many years - had some good races and seasons -...

    VP 100 Street Blaze/MS100

    No, you cannot run straight MS 109 in your car. How do I know? Because, I talked to VP fuels directly about their products and they said MS 103 is what I should run, nothing higher. Or you could run the equivalent Sunoco product. I run either one - currently running the MS 103 but have run...

    Nope, not testy or bothered in the least by people I don’t know and or don’t care about. Amused is more appropriate. Have a nice day!!

    Nope, not testy at all and not a nerd. Just someone pointing out some common sense items when I see such foolishness. And as I said earlier, you will never get any info from Ford unless the government compels them to provide it. Fortunately, you are not charging extra for your...

    ??? The ONLY data related to engine failures comes from my earlier short frequency count based on 6G Shelby owners only, and then the current spreadsheet count of about 45 engine failures from combined count of this forum plus a few others. I doubt the total number of different Shelby owners...

    My GT350R will likely be my last Ford car.

    Veritas Thanks, for speaking up. I was going to, but the attack was so baseless and petty after I tried to be crystal clear about what I was doing and how. And frankly, I am too busy now continue to feed this type of nonsensical attack. Of course I was prepared for this level of crap...

    Bingo Bingo, you get it, as I expect many others seen or unseen, do. I have done some ancillary “lurking” on the Camaro 6G and CorvetteForum and did not see any analagous blown engine threads among the host of other complaint threads during my brief lurks. They may be there, just didn’t...

    My car was built prior to 2/17 when they switched from spin on to canister type filter. I bought the car on 9/17 and never received either the oil filter wrench or revised manual that came with it that warned about using up to a quart of oil under certain driving conditions. Found out about...

    Not Likely My discussion re the Corvette Forum membership was meant to illustrate that only a relatively small number of owners have membership in these special interest forums. It is extremely tempting to take what real numbers we have and extrapolate the hell out of them. Human nature...

    Two Additional Things I Do

    There have been two things I have always done with all of my performance cars which have always made sense to me. Before the Shelby, I had many Corvettes including C4 ZR-1, C6 ZR1, C5 Z06, 2 C6 Z06s. Many of them were modified by folks like Lingenfelter, Katech... The two things are: When...

    Two members have had two engine replacements. Each occurrence was counted as a separate event.

    Data Update - Frequency Count Statistics I recently checked back here and saw two additional reports of engine failures which necessitate Ford replacement. This will be my final report for this statistical exercise. Please see my prior posts re the background pertaining to how this was done...

    Correct on both counts- as process documented in posts I referenced.

    Data Update - Frequency Count Statistics Just checked in on this thread and saw that another member has documented their own engine failure/replacement. This brings the frequency count to 22 occurrences. This brings the percentage of failures to 7.3% among members of the 350 forum. Please...

    Sorry to hear this. Still used to using miles instead of KM, so 500 KM is about 300 miles, I guess. I suppose Ford will put you on an oil usage monitoring test? If your engine is burning a quart in every 300 miles or less, I think it could be considered a failing (blown motor) which requires...

    Good Information I don't follow Formula 1 very closely, so that is interesting. But, I bought a street car that also has emission controls like catalytic converters. I have no idea, say if a car is burning through a quart of oil every 1000 miles, how does running 50 or 60 quarts of oil...
