What's the next step...buy your car fully modded: exhaust, suspension, cai, supercharger and pay for it all at time of purchase and call it a day?
Yep, both GM and BMW have very similar TSBs issued for all of their vehicle lines! I think the motors and parts are tweaked almost to the max from the factory. There is not much left on the table without sacrificing reliability. When you are already over 400 HP, stress on parts increases exponentially as things are tweaked even more, hence the likely hood of failures now increases at an additional rate. Couple this with the tough economic times, companies can not afford to just replace parts that fail due to customers experimenting with mods.Has a TSB like this ever been issued before? I mean, everyone knows that Mustangs are enthusiast cars and therefore usually modded. I wonder what precipitated such a bulletin now and why it wasn't around 5 years ago.
Watch out, your axle backs are on the TSB under exhaust mods. :nono:I had plans on getting a SCT tuner with Bama tunes from AM (Im confident in their tuning capabilities) but Ford is just so flakey with modding this car, Im not gonna chance it. Ill do some appearance, handling, and sound system mods. so hard to swallow owning a Mustang and not being able to confidently modify it :mesad:
Who had issues with the #8 cylinder stock?This is just insane... people have been having problems with #8 STOCK! I'm surprised they didn't just slap MT-82 failures into this TSB... because they don't know what the problem is with those either, so just blame the aftermarket..
FRPP warranties and parts are not Ford. It's third party.So what about Ford Racing tune, exhaust, superchargers? Only warrantied if installed by a dealer? Funny how the TSB doesn't address the mod parts that they themselves sell.
