hi again, i dont know if im just a worry wart or what but this is my first mustang 4.6 V8 GT, 2005 bought it with just 10,000km on it. Now im not new to Ford engines but i am to the mustang and my question is, is the 4.6 V8 alittle noisy when its cold, i also have a 2008 Ranger with the 4l V6 and I know it makes abit of noise until it warms up.The reason i ask this is because the mustang seems to be pretty loud until she reaches runnning temp, i dont think that too much could go wrong with only 10,000km on it but just wanting your opinions, i know its like asking for the weather forecast haha, but thanks in advance

Mine does it too... Its prob just idling a bit higher at startup. Shouildnt be a problem unless its surging and revving at operating temp.

Yes they are noisy. There's a little valve train noise and injector ticking. Don't think you need to worry. Enjoy the car!

thanks guys

i love the car for sure, cant wait for the bonus and i can start putting some real mods on it. anyways i read here that the cylinders have knock sensors, just wondering what that is, does that mean if the cylinder starts knocking that it will spit a code? just curious

All the mod motors have piston slap until they are up to temp. When they first came out they were a LOT noisier.
