    Why not use what the owner's manual recommends? With all the stories about oil consumption on the 350s I'd stay with Ford products.

    Don’t change the oil right away, as has been mentioned. Drive the car (under 5K RPM’s) for 500 miles. During that period, keep rowing through the gears....utilizing a full range of RPM’s. And don’t use the CC during that period. Let her warm up after every cold start before you head out (should always do that anyway). And then follow the owners manual (as Tony mentioned) using ONLY Motorcraft oil and filters. My car is a ‘16, I followed that procedure to the letter and the car doesn’t burn a drop. Good luck and enjoy!! BB edit- Oh, and welcome to the Shelby family.

    Just curious did they add the belt tensioner part that stops it from slipping/shredding, several of us had that issue. I went the next level up and just added the 10 rib belt, but I would at minimum get the tensioner. The package should come with it, but I would make sure. You are going to love it!!!!

    When choosing a "host hotel" for the Vegas Bash it is always a compromise as some folks want a 5-star luxury resort where others want the lowest priced accommodations in Las Vegas. The TS staff then has to factor in hotels that have banquet rooms and ample secured parking not just for cars but also for attendees who bring a trailer/hauler with them. We then have to take into account the hotels proximity to Shelby American and whatever track we have rented out along with ease of access to the hotel. Host hotel suggestions are always welcome but we have to realize not everyone will be satisfied so all we can do is compromise on the wants & needs of our guests that will hopefully satisfy the majority of them. I should also mention, especially for any first timers, the host hotel is not mandatory, you are free to stay where ever you like. Las Vegas is a big town with plenty of options. Steve

    40th Anniversary build chart has been updated with the addition of Carroll's #13 car. I've also added stripe colors to the chart as two of the 40th's did not have regular production silver striping. And before anyone asks, these two non-silver stripes cars were cars for Carroll. There was no stripe color choices available, your name had to be on the front of the building to receive a change in stripe color. The Registry was also available to track down more detailed mod-shop build info that changed some of the option numbers like the white cue ball shifter numbers.

    You are right about whites, blacks and silver/gray. Shades of blue are also up there as well. Car Companies invests millions in studying market and sales trends for car colors. It is far from an arbitrary or “one person” decision mentioned above. Ford probably invests more than most in color marketing research . If in fact the final Mustang Color Selection is left up to “The Ford Family”, which I doubt it is, but if it actually is I seriously doubt they just stick a few color charts under their nose. It will be delivered with a very comprehensive and expensive Marketing Research Report showing sales trends of all colors and projected sales of new colors. The Mustang since its inception has typically had about 10 or more colors available in any given model year which is more than most models, some colors are carried over in to the next model year or two if they are popular and slow selling colors are killed off. New colors are then implemented. The Mustang has also quite likely been offered in more colors over its lifespan than any other car in the history of the automobile. Its been offered in over 800 color offerings from year to year over the past 55 years, so they do listen to the market and adapt, but even so some people are still going to complain.

    What's up Lobby. Greetings from the great frozen mid-west. I love snow storms that blow the snow off my driveway so I don't have to push it around. But it left a 3' drift just in front of the front door, so I had to push it off the steps. Been watching Laika run around the backyard. Sometimes he jumps over the drifts, sometimes he walks thru them and stands in them. And even with single digit temps last night, he was still outside and just sitting on the porch looking around. He doesn't care, he's a Husky.

    I know the colour does suck and so does the wing but we'd get an idea how much it would change that gaping grill look....this is a track pac car there will be a version with the smaller spoiler on the back and no CF wheels.

    Don't listen to some of the above posts except for 2BJShelbys' recommendation to use the factory recommended oil. The 2018 GT350( or any recent GT350 for that matter) does NOT require 500 miles of babying and rowing through gears for the engine break in period, in fact it can be harmful to do so. There is a lot of good information out about the 5.2 FPC and there is a lot of wrong information as well on the net about break in. Ignore it all and follow your manual and supplement manual. I will provide some information below as to why you should follow your Ford GT350 Supplement Manual on break in procedure. It’s a bit long but important to know. People who bought the GT350 thinking it would not burn oil at times did not do any research or are typically not familiar with race type engines. Some people think because it is a race type engine it is built to some high tolerances. There are indeed areas of the engine that are machined to high tolerance but race type engines will typically have looser tolerances in regard to piston/cylinder wall clearance and will also have thinner rings sets for sealing the combustion chamber.They are designed as such to reduce as much friction as possible while also reducing blow by as much as possible. They are built this way intentionally to maximize hp over a broad heat range. This “slop” in piston/cylinder wall clearances allows for a higher degree of thermal expansion, because going from cold to race or track conditions generates a broader heat range and thus a broader range of thermal expansion the engine components will see. If the 5.2 FPC was built to standard production engine spec it would start just fine and then seize up when put on a track. The “slop” is there for a reason. The result of building a race type engine this way maximizes horsepower but it also can cause some Oil Burning and sometimes “Piston Slap”. The the biggest complaints from consumers have been these two conditions in the 5.2 FPC. Both conditions are normal if neither are excessive. The piston slap or “ticking” upon cold start that goes away is normal. If it continues after engine warm up and does not go away then get it checked. If your car burns a quart or so of oil between a 3k to 5 oil change intervals I would consider that normal. Yes some people are claiming no oil burn and some people are claiming 2 or 3 quarts between intervals. If you have your foot in it all the time you are probably going to burn more oil, also if you have frequent cold starts you may burn more oil , if it burns excessive amounts of oil get it checked. It’s not a production engine, it’s a production race engine. A little oil burn and some ticking on start up is normal for the 5.2 FPC. There is a lot of old school thought about engine break in. You don’t have to to run 500 or 1000 miles of varying speed, play “row row row your boat” with the gears, etc. In fact the manual says don’t play heavy with the brakes and the gear rowing for the first 100 miles. Extended 500 mile to 1000 mile engine break in typically applies to standard production cross plane crank engines and yes the standard Mustang manual in the engine break in section of the 2018 Mustang Manual on Page 202 says the following: “BREAKING-IN: Tires: New tires need to be run-in for approximately 300 mi (500 km). During this time, you may experience different driving characteristics. Brakes and Clutch: Avoid heavy use of the brakes and clutch if possible for the first 100 mi (150 km) in town and for the first 1,000 mi (1,500 km) on freeways. Engine :Avoid driving too fast during the first 1,000 mi (1,500 km). Vary your speed frequently and change up through the gears early. Do not labor the engine.” HOWEVER, you do NOT have a standard Mustang, you have a Ford Shelby #GT350 with a Flat 5.2 Plane Crank Engine, you need to refer to your 2018 GT350 SUPPLEMENT MANUAL, which on page 33 says the following: “BREAKING-IN Your vehicle requires a break-in period. Drive your new vehicle at least 100 mi (160 km) before performing extended wide open throttle maneuvers and at least 1,000 mi (1,600 km) before performance or competition conditions. Note: Vary your speed frequently in order to give the moving parts a chance to break in. “ After 100 miles you can rev to wide open throttle intermittently all you want and it will actually help bed the rings properly rather than "hurt the engine" ………but just don’t keep your foot in it too long. In many cases the worst thing you can do is baby a race type engine too long. You have a limited amount of time to bed the rings. It isn’t about the crankshaft, cams, rods, lifters and other components, those are highly machined and finished. The main focus of 100 mile engine break in procedure on the 5.2 FPC per the manual is bedding the rings. The cylinder walls are PTWA (Plasma Transferred Wire) This process creates a low friction surface with a good dimensional characteristics in the cylinder liner, which is required for the 5.2 FPC. After this process the cylinders are honed. Controlled bedding and wearing in of the new piston rings on to the hone of the cylinder walls that is the most important in break in. You want to bed those rings so that they achieve a correct seal against the cylinder walls, and you have a small window of time in which to do so in order to bed the rings properly in order to reduce oil consumption and keep blow by to a minimum.” So again, You don’t need to baby the engine and row through gears a lot for 500 miles. The transmission does not need a lot of rowing through the gears either to break it in, and doing so doesn’t do much to “load the engine”. You want to break in the engine under load. That mean accelerating and decelerating within about 75 to 80% of the recommended max rpm range using the engine to speed up or slow down (applying throttle and taking your foot off it). After one hundred miles of doing so, then the rings will be bedded and you can go wide open throttle from that point as it says in the GT350 supplement manual……….just don’t go wide open throttle for extended periods until after 1000 miles as the manual says. This short break in before being able to go wide open throttle is important. It may seem counter-intuitive to some people who have grown up on a steady diet of regular production cross plane crank engines but the supplement manual instructions are the correct way to do it. Babying a racing type engine for 500 to 1000 miles may actually cause your rings not to bed in properly and will actually increase your oil consumption or piston slap. Follow your manual, not anecdotal input. BTW, Some race engines are only tested on a dyno for 30 to 45 minutes, they are then pulled and components and oil are checked for wear and metals and contaminants in the oil. Then they are put back on the dyno and ran through their paces for only a couple of hours and then they are thrown in the race car to let it rip in competition. Do your hundred miles as instructed in the manual, then "let it rip" some here and there for your own delight and the benefit of the engine, and after 1000 miles of letting her rip at wide open throttle here and there, you can then take it to the track and keep your foot in it. Good Luck and Enjoy.

    I found the source for the medias' use of the "R' term for the 2011 GT350. It comes from a Shelby American press release dated 10/7/2010 and refers to the release of the 624 HP model. I have a copy but am unable to do a poto post. I can fax a copy or scan and email it to someone if they want to post it. The release from www.shelbyautos.com/viewnews states in part: " LAS VEGAS-October 7, 2010-Shelby American. a wholly owned subsidiary of Carroll Shelby International, Inc. (CSBI:PK) has released the official performance spec of the supercharged and normally aspirated packages for the Shelby GT350, as well as a new higher horsepower option for the 5.0 liter powered car. With up to 624 horsepower on tap via an optional "R" tune, the 2011 Shelby GT350 is one of the most powerful limited production cars in the world. "Our goal was to build the ultimate small bolck muscle car," said John Luft, President of Shelby American. "The results show that the Shelby GT350 takes American performance to a new level. In recent tests, the standard supercharged car it 60 miles per hour in just 3.7 seconds and ran the quarter in 12 seconds flat.... We believe the "R" tuned GT350 will be even faster." Note: the press release goes on the use the "R"tune term for the 624 HP version a couple more times to differentiate that model from the 525 HP supercharged model. This is where the media and, subsequently, the buyers probably latched on to the GT350R designation. It is not for an R model racer, but a for higher horsepower tune as noted from the factory.

    Mongoose you be careful with this weather and all. Didn’t realize how severe this weather is that you are all having. Be safe and I’ll send you the SGT when I get back. Just pm me your address and full name. How about $28 Including shipping. I kind of bought this with you in mine. It doesn’t have a box if that matters to you. I have a KR in blue from Franklin Mint. Let me know if you want it after all this crazy weather. Later. Stay warm. Slo lane.

    As others have already mentioned if the dealership follows the correct recall procedure only the inflator canisters will be replaced which will leave the original covers in place. Unfortunately some dealerships have not followed the correct recall procedures and have ordered a complete airbag assembly through their parts department which results in both the inflator canister and cover being replaced. Best suggestion I have for owners is when speaking with the service writer make sure the service writer understands the correct replacement process and perhaps even have them make a note on the service ticket that inflator canister only is to be replaced. One other suggestion is to pick your car up as soon as possible so that if there is a problem the dealership will not have time to have "lost" your original airbag cover. Steve

    SAI did NOT weld the "H" section in place after cutting and removing the factory "X" section. The H section was clamped in place only. SAI wouldn't sell the KR H section for a long time, then changed their mind and did for a while. This is what the ad looked like...

    IIRC Hans Hermann worked for VW before Shelby so I suspect their may be some other parts close to VW specs. By the way if anyone cares Carroll's GLHS turned over to 10,000 miles last Monday when I had it out. That's like under 500 miles per year B) Steve
