Who has the most miles on there 5.0 ?

Just posting this up to see who has the most miles. Mainly as a refrence I plan on buying a used 11 and alot of the cheaper ones have about 30-40k on them. My plans are to keep the car for good and build it with sc and such. So was just wondering if try are as solid as the 4.6 I've seen alot of mustang over 100k no problems so was jus wondering before i drop 20k on a car with above 40k miles

if your building it around an sc, then most of the parts that miles take a toll on will be replaced...if that is your ultimate goal...id buy one with super high miles for cheap...and replace motor internals, build the tranny and replace the clutch, swap out suspension parts...and really you should be good to go...

granted the car isnt beat to sh!t...but big time rebuilding is great for a high mileage car that has been well taken care of.

This is the most I've seen, provided it isn't a typo.

I searched before I made thread of course they relate it to the mt 82 lol u just know the 4.6 were monsters in regard to reliability. And the sc will be overtime first thing is my elenor kit lol and I've been looking but I refuse to pay over 25 for a 2011 that's crazy and ones I've seen with Hugh milage are around 23 and I'd try to be otd at that number

See alot of the dealers I find that have a 11 with 7-10k miles are asking 26-27 which I can't eat a 13 for around 27-28 with military unions but not into the 13 since I plan on doing everything custom

If you were planning on keeping it stock I'd say you have no trouble finding one at that mileage as a certified used that would have a great warranty. But as that's not going to apply since you are planning on mods I'd just be out looking for the best deal.

Scott | 2012 GT Premium Coupe • Performance White • 6R80 • HID • 64M Wheels • Ford All-Weather Pony Mats & Trunk Liner • GT500/GT Rear Mud Flap Set • Ohio's Horses License Plate • Raxiom Aero Tails

If you love your dog, get a microchip, they really work! My lost dog was back home in just under 24 hours thanks to the good citizens who called the county and the microchip that told animal control exactly where he lived.

My 2011 Performace White auto tranny Mustang GT which I bought on September of 2010 only has 3,952 miles on it. I drive it every now and then to work, but my 2012 Focus is now my daily driver along with an occassional drive on my 1988 Mustang GT hatchback.

Pretty good estimate, I got mine less than a month ago for 27, Base GT sterling grey, 3.55's and the sync package, list was 33-34. and for the price you are seeing used I would buy new and ignore the warranty concerns.

13 GT base, 3.55, Sterling Grey, MGW shifter, BMR LCA's, GT500 AB, silver RTR's, 275/40/19 Michelin pilot super sports, more stereo equipment than I will admit to, more parts to come.
