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.

@  G3012 : (26 October 2017 - 06:54 PM)

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?

I'm wanting to purchase a cold air intake kit for my '16 GT350.  I've seen the one K&N offers, but does anyone else have any other recommendations?  Is a tune required?

JLT makes a popular intake. Most require a tune.

I saw that one as well. Either way, I live in Commie CA, so I'd have to order and ship to my father in TX and he'd have to mail it to me.  Is it personal preference for the JLT over the K&N, or is the JLT better?

It looks better than the k&n and I'm sure it flows a bit better. It's all over YouTube.

I have done business with JLT for a LONG time and they have great products. My 750HP GT500 used only JLT products. 

 

Now the tune, not as critical on normally aspirated car  as it was on my GT500, I went with VMP for my tune. 

 

But a tune and a JLT CAI from JLT I would endorse whole heartedly.

 

Once I get my oil consumption issue behind me, I will opt for this as well as a set of good headers and do it all at once.

 

I want to FEEL the difference !!!!

Ok, it really sounds like JLT is the way to go!  I'll keep reading up and look on youtube some more.

 

Smokum, I noticed you previously owned a '90 SHO.  My first car was a '93 SHO...loved it!

Back In the day I was very involved in SHO's..... first super charged SHO in the country featured in Super Ford Magazine and learned over a period of time

to do tranny work ... pull motors and completely rebuild them etc .... had a great side business for a period of time since not many people knew how to work

on these cars.

Oh, nice!  We subscribed to the SHO magazine back in the day, and had all the "bolt-on" upgrades available...nothing as serious as a super charger, but still pissed off plenty of fox-body 5.0 owners.  The only downside was the 60k maintenance required on the valves.  You HAD to find a specialist, because none of the Ford dealers knew anything about the car.  The first time around, everything went great, but it was never the same after the second time around...

I learned how to do take the intake off .... than i learned how to do take all the front covers off for belts and water pump and CPS sensor replacement ...... just slowly

step by step got deeper into the motor and finally pulled a motor.

 

The SHOFORUM which is semi defunct had tons of how to pages to do such work and lots of people you could email
