    It was a troll post in my opinion. If the op truely wanted info a simple search would have yielded them everything they needed.

    All GT350's blow up. This forum is pretty much a bunch of people day dreaming of what it's like to have some Mustang with a 5.2L flat crank engine but in reality, the Voodoo engine doesn't exist. It has been the most successful digital scam in the car industry to date. The exhaust note is a combination of a Ferrari engine that is choking on a dildo and a bad day after taco bell. The body work is clearly a mule of the 2087 Mustang with a hybrid brodozer propulsion system. Tremec never made the TR3160. That transmission was used in the Cadillac ATS only and Ford fabricated that story too. All in all, the GT350 is just an internet rumor.

    I say ignore the doom and gloom people.
    Guess it's good we don't apply the same logic to health care. We would be to afraid to get any treatments.

    As good as internet is, and like everything else, it has its side effects.

    This subject is like beating a dead horse.. no... it's actually now like beating the crushed remains of a dead horse. I too was concerned about the engine issues, but at the end of the day the percentages were low and no different than what you would experience with any performance high rev sports car. Test drive one and decide for yourself. It's worth it.

    Evertime someone asks how many Voodoos have blown up or if their engine is going to blow up, this site should automatically send said individual the meatspin gif via private message.
