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 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
