Thanks, guys! Now it's time to start buying mods. I think first will be the Bassani exhaust.

Congrats, make sure the bassanni exhaust is specially made for the GT 500. I had to return the Bassani SS Axle Back Exhaust because they would not fit.

It won't be long now. Congratulations. Have you thought about how you're going to break the engine in?


Drive it like you stole it!

Order placement to VIN was 340 days. It was a brutal wait, but now it finally feels like it's all real.

Well, it's a 3-hour drive from the dealership in Salida, CO to my house in Parker, so I figure that will give me a good break-in. I'll get to drive through some beautiful parts of the Colorado Rockies, including the famous South Park! Maybe I can stop and get pictures with Cartman, Kenny, Stan & Kyle. :D

What am I saying? I'm not going to get to drive it home. I'm pretty sure my wife will make me drive the truck home while she gets to enjoy the Shelby. :(

When is the last time you called Ford Customer Service? A ton of Q2 build folks got VINs on Friday. You might want to give them a call.

Wow, congrats Prez. The next month or so will fly by quick and before you know it, your wife will be driving it. :rolleyes: You should talk her into splitting the drive home in half so you both have a chance to feel the fun this car has to offer.

Almost a full year on material hold hell. I wonder if that's the most anyone has had to wait.

I've heard that you should try to avoid long periods at the same RPM. Varying the RPM's through the gears with occasional hard acceleration with occasional hard deceleration is best. Changing the oil at the end of the break in period is also recommended. If you google "new engine break in" you'll find all kinds of opinions. I'm trying to sort out the various opinions myself.
