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 noticed on Shoutbox a month or so ago when someone asked this question but can't find an answer on the forum - where does Shoutbox go when a question is answered?  Notice a wire going to the underside of the hood intake scoop along with a sensor - what is this for?

Its just a quick way to see a question or statement from a member. It doesn't really go anywhere else.

 

 

and for the wire I really dont know either ..... never paid attention to it. I googled it and the only thing that came up was this one post from you

You know Don I thought the same thing since its just a wire attached to an aluminum hood. But it doesn't appear to go any where and looks like how a ground wire would attach. Maybe Ford was going to put something there and changed there mind. Now you got my curiosity up. I know you work at a dealership so maybe you could do some in depth checking and let us know what you find. While your at it if you don't mind, I've posted before that as far as I know they added one more speaker to the 2017's verses the 2016's but yet the 2017's on the lower dash below entertainment center have the word SHAKER. We know we don't have a sub amp and in the past on the Mustang if you had a SHAKER then you had a power butt kicking sub amp etc. I do assume we don't have the sub to save weight.
