I have a 408w and I have burned out 3 starters in 2 days. the first issue was that the sollenoid on the firewall got wet and melted, which kicked in the starter and caused it to burn up. I then replaced the sollenoid and the starter (with a temporary cheap starter from o'reilly's). I started it 3 times with no issue, but the fourth time i tried to start it the starter was bad. I took the starter back and got a performance starter from o'reilly's and once again started it 3 times with no issue. then I decided to go for a drive. When I shifted into 2nd, the starter engaged and was burnt up again in a matter of seconds.

On my 95GT after the new engine and mods, i went through 5 advance autoparts starters in 1 year. Finally the last one lasted the last 2 years that i owned the car. I think OEM it better and most others are junk.
