I changed dead battery in 2008 Shelby, now my instrument cluster is not working correctly. No fuel indication , no oil pressure indication,no blinkers or 4 ways(indication). All lights work but don't indicate. Did I blow a fuse, does the computer need reset??

Anybody know if 66 350 H came in white with gold stripes? I always thought they only came in black with gold or white with blue. The one I've got is white with gold. I did a bare metal strip and repaint and if it was a repaint I can't tell.It's also got a Paxton on it. I freshened it up, forged pistons and rods, cam. shaft mounted Jesel roller rockers, etc. It's dynoing about 585, and I love driving it. It's gonna get me in trouble. Thanks, if anybody knows about the paint.

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 just traded in my 2012 zl1 for a 2017 gt350 and noticed on the ride home that 6th gear immediately muffles the glorious exhaust note.  Is there any way I can fix this problem without f*cking with the warranty.  Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Nope the car automatically closes the valves back to normal mode when in 6th. gear. And you couldn't change that even if you didn't care about warranty without getting a code.

It is my understanding that Ford's thinking was that if you are cruising in 6th gear you want the cabin to be quite.  6th gear is really more of an overdrive and if you are cruising in overdrive you are not motoring around therefore you don't need the loud exhaust.  Not saying I agree with it, just sharing what i have heard on this.

 

I'm with you, I like the sound of the exhaust and hate that it goes away in 6th.

Actually you can fix it. When the car is running and the exhaust valves are turned on, go to the back and disconnet the wires that turns them off and on. This way they will be on all the time including sixth gear

Nice thinking Don, years ago I was stuck driving a Hertz 17' moving van across country and the 55mph rev limiter got old in about 5 minutes.  So I pulled over, looked under hood, disconnected wires and had a much happier cross country drive :)

From those who have done it I dont believe so, I personally like the muted sound when cruising at 80

 

However when i pass someone i always will drop it down to 5th gear !!

Thanks for the help.  Where exactly can I find these wires, can I do it myself or do I need to go to the ford dealer and have them do it.

Since its not a real emissions issue or would void the warranty a dealer could do it ..

 

I would jack the car up (be careful and use the proper jack mounts) and hunt for them ... or google it and see if you

have found someone else that has done it to give u a heads up
