Hello All! I have a 2017 GT350R chassis HR687. Does anyone have the final breakdown on the 2017 production number totals and production of each specific model and option pkgs yet? Ford SVT told me there were 942 R's made and about 6000 GT's. Also, what is a good street tire to run on an R since no other company makes the R rear tire size? Can I run the front tire size on the rear of the R? I have seen phohot of guys running the 325-30-19 on the rear but it looks too large for the wheel well. I wanted to go with the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S. Thanks!

@Biggest for a 2017 anything between 5 and 10 over is a good price but you'll have tough time finding the color you want. Popular color/stripes combo can easily go for 15/20 over. I'm not sure if I would even try to buy a 2018. Being the last production year I'd be surprised to see anything below 20 over sticker. My advice is to be patient and keep calling around all over the country. I got mine at 7 over sticker out of pure luck. Every single dealer that I spoke with before finding mine would not go below 15. All you need is one lucky situation where they are trying to get rid of it

@  panzer69 : (29 January 2018 - 01:15 PM)

yeah i agree with that, my dealer is selling his 60k above

@  smokum : (29 January 2018 - 11:11 AM)

IF YOU FOUND A GT350R AT MSRP ITS PROBABLY ALREADY SOLD TO SOMEONE ELSE .... JUMP ON IT ... DO NOT PAST GO DO NOT COLLECT $200

@  Biggest : (27 January 2018 - 10:10 AM)

Hey Guys, im new to this forum(registered now) Can any of you give me an idea of what a good price for a new 2017 Gt350R is? I have one on hold in New Jersey, Black with white stripe and electronic package, MSRP is $68020, I have not found one at MSRP so my question is whats a good/decient price on a 2017? Thanks

Anyone experience any type of noise at idle? Accelerating either feather, light/medium or heavy? I think this is a good thread to start for everyone to post their experience with this very new production engine.

I have less than 200 miles on my 2016 track pack gt350. I leave the radio off usually so I can hear if anything is wrong, or just what sounds can I hear. I have noticed that while driving in any gear with very very light gas pedal contact I do hear a sound that I don't hear when pressure is actually applied. Not sure if normal sound or if I should be concerned.

Would like to hear from all the other gt350 s550 owners on this topic. Couldn't really find what I was looking for in existing threads. Thanks.

Thought my first oil change would quite things up. I just make sure she's good and warm before i give her the spurs. :grabber:  :grabber:

Well the noise I hear only happens when I'm cruising and have my foot on the gas but I'm not really accelerating maybe a tiny bit. Just barely barely accelerating. And if I push down at all it stops. Like the transmission is just noisy maybe.

Well I looked into another forum that people actually use, found that pretty much all the gt350's do it. Most of the owners just havnt realized it yet because it happens at a very specific operation. And goes away at operating temp. They also it tho. And it's not noticeable unless radio is off, no other cars driving around you, no other noises to cover it. It's very quite. But there.

I have noticed a issue at idle, it stumbles randomly. Not only at warm up,  but on the road also

When just driving around I have noticed a slight noise coming from the transmission

You can also feel it in the shifter when cruising around. But under acceleration it goes away

I did not notice any abnormal noises when I took the Fat Fendered Beast to NOLA Motorsport Park

for a  Track Light Night

Honestly I think that it's just what this particular car sounds like. It's just a characteristic

I have noticed a "marbles in a can" rattle, very much like ping or knock, but it happens all the time when the GT350 is warmed up, even when it is not under load.

 

Is this the kind of sound you are talking about?

 

This car is otherwise fantastic. It has the Track Pack and I have driven it at Willow Springs Raceway in California and it is very quick (1:31.2 on the mIchelin Pilot Super Sports and 1:29.8 with Hoosier tires)

I also took it out to a 1.5 mile event at Mojave airport and it ran a best of 174.2 miles per hour.

I know this is a fairly old thread, but I was wondering if lifter noise is normal at idle?

Now to be honest I have only noticed it in a garage and between two cars when I had the windows down.

Does anyone know if these have solid lifters? I searched and didn't find anything on that.

no lifters in the traditional sense ... overhead cams, all direct actuation without any

kind of fluid damper.
