    Does the GT350 computer keep the max accelerometer in memory?
    I’m looking at a ‘19 with 80miles in the odo and want to know if anyone abused it.
    I saw the GT500 does.

    I can't say for sure but I was told by my service adviser as long as back in 2007 that they can do a deep dive into the pcm and discover anything you did to your car, how you drove it, and yes, even the so called tuners that you can erase and reload the stock tune. You can't hide anything from them if they look hard enough. So yes they could probably do that for you.

    That's a lot of test drive miles. The initial break-in period of 100miles is nearly finished, and I'm pretty sure nothing was followed. Hope the discount is steep for you to consider it. People are getting $5-7k off brand new GT350Rs.

    A few days ago I saw a utube video of someone prepping a new GT500 for a customer who was picking it up the following day. Another viewer noticed the max G’s were way in excess of what would be within the first 100 mile break in.
    I thought maybe the 350 had the same ability so “I” could check. Don’t know if I’d trust a dealership to give me that pertinent information because it would obviously “out” them.
    BTW...The car is over 9K off but I’m not quite ready yet.

    No longer matters, the car is no longer on the dealerships website. Roseville Ca Ford “Future Ford”.
    I really hope someone got a screaming deal!

    Just wasn’t meant to be that’s all.
    I’m sure when Im ready I’ll find another great deal.
    The next couple months seems to be a good time to buy.
    Sure would be nice to be able to check to see if a car wasn’t abused, even with 10 miles on the ODO.
    I’ve seen UTube reviewers thrash cars in a test drive. Brand new and bouncing off the rev limiter.

    Even if you bought one brand new, saw it come off the truck, there is no way to assure that some one didn't rev the crap out it. I could have happened by the truck driver who loaded it or the PDI tech who failed to install the splitter correctly. Sometimes you just have to have faith and a little trust.
