I placed an order and paid for the License plate holder that is listed on this site on the 15th & to date I have not gotten any shipping info. Also sent an email with no response. Any suggestions? It is through registry market place.
They refunded my money, but I really wanted the license plate holder. I will look elsewhere I guess.

Unless you already have, I would post this under racing ..... but I think you will be fine. I am sure your not the first GT350 to run that track.

I have had my Metallic GT350 for a little over a year now, and love to drive it. The mountains of Northern CA (Napa, Sonoma, Lake and Mendocino counties) are a drivers dream. I also went to Utah for the 2 day school that was way too much fun. I now am planning on some track days out here in the west, but must meet their sound limits. Sonoma and Thunderhill have a max of 103db, while Laguna Seca are as low as 94 some days. How loud is this monster? Has anyone had any issues on track days for noise? Has anyone been to Sonoma or Thunderhill with their GT350 and had any issues? Thanks for the help,

@  smokum : (24 October 2017 - 03:24 PM)

Any current production car its hard to tell if it will be a collectible or not. I honestly don't see that with the GT350. I dont think it will affect value since it was a warrantied item. Its unfortunate that this is happening but you are getting a new engine which is the right thing to do with Ford. I don't think Ford will replace the car. I suggest if you want a better sample of opinion to start a thread in the appropriate section

@  tedstefaniw : (24 October 2017 - 10:17 AM)

Hey members, would like some Opinions. I purchased my 2016 GT350 late march this year from Levittown Ford NY. I was getting some serious engine knocking noise when starting the car. Had it in the dealer three times, first in July to get it checked, they couldn't diagnose. after keeping the car for days. 2 weeks ago car lost almost all the oil, due to the Oil filter backing out! Most likely due to the excessive engine vibration(rods/lifters?). Destroyed my driveway and my Jobs parking lot. Finally this last time they told me I need a new long block! No problem thay will order new engine. My gripe is I want a new car, I didn't pay over sticker for the best Mustang ever built to get a engine replacement after 6 months. Not to mention , if I ever want to sell the car what this would do to it's resell value. Opinions please?

If I was in the my favorite exhaust shop now, I would do it in a heart beat!.   The only concern is the performance difference. If the stock resonators have a smooth perforated core ( not pimpled-as used by Magnaflow to reduce rasp at the sacrifice of some flow) and are of the same ID as the exhaust piping fore and aft, they would actually flow better than a straight pipe. This has been repeatedly been proven (the common theory being that their is less exhaust drag  surface with perforations than with solid pipe). If they are smooth perforated cores and, together with other  non-exhaust mods, high three seconds 0-60 would be more easily obtained. The GT 350 is so close to 4.0 seconds already. Of Course, If were serious about improving performance through exhaust mods, I would  get a .5 inch larger OD or ID cat back exhaust, but then The GT's wonderful

basic exhaust symphony would change and probably for the worse. All in all, IMO, deleting the resonators would  make for a super Shelby GT sound for maybe  a little less performance.  For street use, that would be the way to go.

Hi guys,

 

I've tried to do some research but I can't find any pictures.  The GT350R has an X pipe.  Does the GT350 have a resonator AND an X pipe? or, does the resonator need to be replaced with an X pipe?

 

Thanks,

Robert

X pipe or straight pipes.

Some will argue, but it really doesn't matter.

The X pipe should benefit the NA motor for scavenging/ flow at the higher rpm range.  Both the R and non R have it. Easy to spot by peeking underneath without have to lift it. If you like the best flow-wise resonator delete arrangement and sacrifice some (can't tell you how much) of the Ford tuned R sound , I  would replace the X pipe so that the straight pipe coming out of does not 'neck down' as it does in both versions. There is a slightly smaller pipe inserting into the X pipe then it inserts back into a  the slightly wider resonator or straight pipe (as with the R). This neck down contributes to the pop open sound when the throttle is mashed. So you can slip and weld a transition or widened out lip  straight pipe over  that narrower section of pipe and sound just like the R, or remove the X pipe and start fresh with a straight pipe coming off the X pipe, sleeving over it, then sleeving back down over the rest of the piping, or for best flow, connecting the  new X pipe and the rest of the piping with a piece of same consistent diameter piping.

Find a good quality exhaust shop to replace the resonators with stainless steel pipes.

Is there a difference in a gt350 and gt350r exhaust?

Have you had any problems? I've heard that unplugging will cause the computer to kick the car into limp home mode.
