I've gotta disagree on the color. Highland Green is one of the best colors to ever be sprayed on a Mustang.

You like the look so much that you got rid of the hood, bumper, and wheels? That one does look good

TBH I forgot they made them in '08, lol. Probably because with factory body parts they look like a fleet vehicle

You can tell ferd kind of doesn't care about the bullitt. N/a 2v...na 3v...now it has the coyote motor at least but damn. High price and minimal options, it's a cash grab from people who like the heritage from the 60's.

Fair enough. I should have kept that car and Coyote swapped it with some turbos.

Was it new? If not how many miles?

There seems to be a lot of low mileage used gt350's on the market. I'd be pretty scared to get an oil burner...

If it burns oil who cares. A quart of oil between oil changes is no big deal. Too many crybabies blowing things way out of proportion.

Just out of curiosity, what's causing the oil consumption? 1 qt between changes also does not seem that excessive, especially when there's 10 qts in there

I don't know for sure. I have not seen any real proof of what causes the issues. Have not read much Mustang stuff in the last year. My guess is the ring package needed along with with the PCV system. Even the coyote sucks a lot of oil as evident by what guys see in oil separators.

I have seen a couple guys say they see it burning oil out the tailpipes. Take it for what it's worth

Lol yea I totally agree a quart of oil between changes is not a big deal, but if you wander over to M6G, the ones that burn oil tend to burn a little more than 1 quart between changes. Like a quart every 500 miles or even worse.

The 1 qt guesstimate was obviously pulled out of Pratts stink star...

I think Ford and GM will both tell you 1 qt every 1k miles is acceptable

These are also the guys that run the car to 8,000 rpm and let it drag down rpm as the car comes to a stop. Lots of time in vacuum pulling oil from the PCV. Driving style can have a huge amount to do with oil consumption.

Some cars may have some issues. But you have to remember you are talking about people on a forum that are overly picky owners. Many clueless as to how cars work. Owners who bought a Shelby because they want the coolest car even though they all they know is where the fuel goes in and that they think people love to hear the car at 8,000 rpm. "A break-in period? What is that?"

I am going to guess the number of cars sold versus the number of cars that required an engine repair is pretty small. Otherwise, Ford would be required/pushed by NHTSA or whoever is responsible for that.

You have to take into account what is needed for an 8,000 v8 engine. Piston design and ring packages are important. Plus emissions requirements calling for specific oils and so on. You can't have the perfect situation to cover everything. You are going to have compromises in a race engine in a production car. Even a quart at 500 miles, who cares. Fill it and have a blast with the car. I doubt many are experiencing something that bad anyways. I think exaggerating may be happening there.

If anyone wants a GT350, go buy one and enjoy it.
