    I am skeptical adding a catch can, and if something does go south with the motor, Ford won't accept my claim.

    Haven't seen the brake bedding procedure mentioned. Any links or guidance?

    You can google it...but bedding brakes..

    accelerate the car up to 45 or so, apply the brakes firmly till you slow down but do not stop.....that’s key...don’t stop.

    Do this perhaps 5 times or so....increase the max speed. Apply the brakes with good pressure, but don’t stop....

    Do about 10 trials like this....on the final one keep driving till the brakes cool. Then you should be ok. Absolutely do not stop and apply the parking brake on hot brakes while they are bedding in. Doing this you are getting a layer of pad material deposited on the rotor and it needs to be even or you might get brake shudder.

    Max - Ford Performance produces catch cans (Official Name: Oil-Air Separators) for our cars. No one has ever had a warranty denied for installing a catch can. In fact, if you go to the FP website, they have a video on there recommending their installation. Why they don't come stock on a $65K car is beyond me! GT500 has it factory installed.

    Here are some tips I posted on another thread. Includes link to Brembo bedding info. YMMV.

    Full disclosure: I bought both, and in over 6000 miles of driving, my driver's side (LH) is still bone dry. The passenger side, OTOH, has been doing great work!

    Here it is at Amazon: https://smile.amazon.com/Ford-Racin...=gt350+oil+airsep&qid=1577734005&sr=8-1-fkmr0

    You can also get it at American Muscle: https://www.americanmuscle.com/coyote-oil-air-separator-1116.html

    Correct on the gurney flap. If you do a quick search, you'll find a lot of discussion about pros and cons. Main con for street use is mileage though there are others as well. Recently ordered a gun sock and rifle case to store mine and prevent it from getting scratched. Unconventional, but pretty happy with the results. Per the old saying, fits like a sock...or something like that...

    bought 2019 GT350 2 weeks ago. The engine was built on 1/22/19 and has two signatures on the pate, not one. The one person engine build(single signature) theory, at least in my case, is not correct.
    This is from Neche Line assembly guy: “With the two-person team, they help check each other’s work, and as one is completing a process the other can set up the next process,” David Cantagallo added. “But, the overall quality benefit is that you have two sets of eyes on everything that you do. They also have a lot of pride in what they do because their names go right on the engine. You can see it in their work ethic and how they function as a team.”

    If I had read this all correctly, it seems the general consensus is the MY2019 Gen 2 motors are not having the same excessive oil consumption issues, at least not as much?

    I hope that is the case since getting the 2019 was lots more $$$ then a used one, and in fact, this is only the 2nd new car I have ever bought (last time was 1990!) I really would of loved to have found a 2017 mostly since it was the last year of Avalanche Grey (ohhhh I wanted THAT color) and while collectors might think otherwise, I would of loved one with a warranty replaced 2019 GT350R motor. But I didn't want to wait and wait, so with the money burning a hole in my pocket I am getting a '19 now/ dealer blowout. I am just a street driver and some say I was an IDIOT to buy a track car for just summer driving on god-awful Detroit area roads, when a 10 speed automatic GT would of been far better, but I had the 350 bug.....

    I had a 16 and 17 GT 350 and both were only street driven and never above 5000 rpm. And I'm almost 75 years old. Ain't nothing wrong with that, all I had to do is fire both up and put exhaust in sports mode and hear my carport vibrate from the best sounding factory exhaust I've ever heard and I felt like back when young with the old muscle cars. Finally got it out of my system but took a long time and gave them up and went back to a new truck.

    I have 2019 GT350. The engine indicates that it's GT350R and has KA on the label. The engine build date is 1/22/19. The car was assembled on 5/2019 and delivered to the dealer on 9/3/2019. Can you tell what job is my? Also, the engine build date is early in the year(1/22/19), do you think these changes applied to my engine?

    Not sure if you hit the wrong button but If this is your door tag from another thread, it was assembled 2/19, not 5/19.
