Just bought it!! She runs STRONG
Congratulations, man! I hope all is good...and have fun turning your back tires into slicks...
Oh man these pirelli's are almost bald!
Inspect the hood seem carefully. I purchased my 2013 with 42,900 back in January, and it did have corrosion. Above the driver's side headlight (I only noticed it because it had crept topside), and several areas at both sides beneath the hood. The car had it when I bought it. Initially, I thought it was a bad touch-up job, but nope: corrosion. I went back to the dealership and they ate the cost of the strip/treat/repaint. How long it will last is anyone's guess, but I'm hopeful. Regardless, I'm setting aside money for a fiberglass hood - should that become necessary. I'll tell you though, I've had the car two months and absolutely love it! And mine is "only" a V6. I'm jealous of GT's V8 sound, but completely content with my 305 ponies.
Haven't noticed any yet. Fingers crossed it stays that way!
You don't need a cooling mod, that's just good marketing by the people selling it. I've owned 2 Coyotes and drove them hard with no issues.
Glad to hear it, I'm driving the **** out of this thing.
I've also heard of a cooling mod for the auto tranny - is that also unnecessary?
There ain't no such thing as "pre-detonation". At no time is detonation helpful, pre or otherwise. You mean pre-ignition, which is an uncontrolled combustion event out of time with the expected one, causing conflicting wave fronts in that cylinder. It doesn't have to do with necessarily a cylinder running hot, though it can. #8 does run a little hotter in this motor yes, due to airflow and a little leaner mix there and cooling system design but, tuners figured this out before we sang Auld Lang Syne on 2011.
Three seasons of DR on my 2012 and at the end, all 8 cylinders showed the maximum allowable compression, to the pound so, it ain't an issue
DR? Glad it's not an issue though!
Congratulations on the new car. I've had paint issues on my 14 GT. Ford fixed the ones on the underside of my trunk lid but won't fix the ones on the underside of the hood. I bought my car new and have only had some minor issues but I think I have the water getting trapped in the rear quarter panel problem now. My car sat in my garage for about 2 months without being driven and when I put the front up on ramps to change the oil, I had water draining out right before the passenger side rear tire.
Before I put the car up for the 2 months, I had taken it on vacation and got caught in a few thunder storms so I'm sure the water was from that.
I park on a hill so I guess I won't be running into that issue! Anything is an improvement over my 05 GT that leaked into the freaking passenger side footwell and SJB.
I can vouch for 2014 . almost 1800 miles or 3000 kilometers on mine and not a singe issue. time to start mods. I wish you well.
