That'll happen. Remember, the Shelby GT350's had a factory recall for a leaking fuel line of some sort. It's just Fords was of staying in the media. haha

And Ferraris. And Porsches.

Seems like the barrier for entry into one of these smoking cars is pretty steep these days.

If GM hadn't killed the 3800, I believe it would have eventually evolved into something like the GT. GM dropped the ball, Ford picked up the fumble and made the Twin Turbo 3.5 Ecoboost. Which made its way into Trucks, SUVs, CUVs, sedans and the GT.

Ford's V6 now > GM V6.

I wonder if the GT had a leaky valve cover?

Obviously this was user error or an act of arson. Ford doesn't make mistakes.

I don't think this is comparable to a 3800. The reason I say that is the 3800 was a 90 degree V6, while the Ecoboost was a 60 degree V6. If you wanted to thrash on it go look at the 2.8/3.1/3.4/ecotec camp.
