    Omg, put 400 miles on mine today still didn’t blow up.

    Formula for success seems simple, make sure it has oil and you probably won’t blow it up...

    another one bites the dust....no they are all not going to explode.. but the risk is there... too many to call it "rare" I would drive it like I stole it as long as the warranty is in place ... don't baby it and keep it in your garage putting 1k miles on a year.. next thing you know the warranty will be gone and you won't know if your engine is ok... and yes, check your oil.. but there are blown engines from guys who did a proper break in and checked their oil...

    We don't know whether or not Tunnel Chaser broke his engine in properly or checked his oil regularly. Watch the video of the night he picks it up, its obvious he knows very little about the car he bought. He seems like a nice enough guy but.....

    Agreed...a lot of speculation around his situation. What bothers me is the guy who really knows his stuff, follows proper break in procedure, minds his oil and still ends up with a replacement engine.

    Ridiculous that current owners try to push these clapped out engines on owners not breaking the engines in properly or not checking the oil. These engines are freakin' turds.

    I mean I’m not going to lie the main reason I got the one I did is because it have 4 miles on it when I found it. It got on the truck, off the truck, and parked in a showroom. So I know I did my own breakin, not the couple of people test driving it.

    How did you do in statistics class?

    Every manufactured part has a thing called variation. That means that every single process applied to a part, casting, forging, machining, deburing, cleaning, etc. does not produce exactly the same results every time. The materials that make up the parts are not identical. The assembly process is not identical. If there are tens of thousands in the population, there are usually numerous different causes for failure, each with a different non-zero likelihood of occurrence. This type of variation is obviously present in all of the individual components within the engine as well.

    So to try to be clear, it isn't as simple as you think.

    And nothing is completely bullet proof. I have a coworker with a diesel pickup that had scoring of the engine bores with less than 50,000 miles on it. And there is a problem with the warranty replacement engine as well. Yes, that is anecdotal evidence - just like what we have on Voodoo engines.

    What a pompous reply. How'd you do in denial class sparky? This board is littered with owners of GT350's where their engines have shit the bed. Anecdotal....wtf does Ford give you a reach around too. The evidence is undeniable at this point, which is why Ford is keeping it confidential. They're exposed otherwise.

    You are wrong; I calculated statistically that the probability of an engine problem or oil consumption is 0.8%. So every 1 of the 100 cars coming out of the factory could have a problem.. so I would not freak out on it. Just drive it and enjoy it, if you have a problem deal with it then.

    Go play with your Dominator friend. The joke is under the hood of your car.

    Wow the denial is really freakin' thick. What do you suppose the reason is why Ford's lips are sealed on this? Wouldn't you feel better knowing what they know? I think we all know the answer. And you calculated squat. Based on what? Everything you don't know lol.

    Listen pal your opinion isn't worth the TP I just flushed down the toilet. And again with the 'we' stuff. You aren't speaking for anyone. Heightened sense of self you have apparently.

    Ok man, there’s just no way that’s accurate. I’m guessing you’re counting all 20k owners like every single one is on some sort of social media?

    I don't have time to look back into all the pages, but it was a best guesstimate considering how many reports of engine failures and high oil consumption we know of, which was multiplied by a factor (to cater for those who do not frequent mustang6g and such). This was divided by the total number of cars made in 3 years to date...
    Ok, it was nowhere precise, but it gives you an idea of what's out there. Multiply my result by 2, and it still a non issue, just to give you a rough proportion of failures from the total population.

    You don't have to believe me, heck I was just trying to help a new owner. Move over this post if you plan to disagree, I don't care sorry and I won't reply to this matter anymore, taken more time than it should already.

    Rapterrier says to tell you that 98% of GT350 engines have blown up.
    Haha

    From your profile it looks like you have an automatic GT (LOL). If I were you... keep that unless you want to wake up with night sweats every night as a GT350 owner.

    Auto is faster my dear fellow.
    Manual cars are more fun overall but they are slower.
