Got some things done before ShelbyFest

Found out there was already an adapter on the shifter for the black ball, so then it was easy to get the new one on.

Got the connections for the Battery Tender, as I discovered 3 weeks of sitting is enough to drain the battery. So now it's a lot easier to connect it when I park it in the garage.
Is your battery oriented correctly? I can't remember how my 2008 was but it seems every picture of engine compartments the battery is turned 180°. Posts toward the front of the car. Maybe I'm having another senior moment... o_O

No idea. I would when it was replaced in Jan at the dealer that they put it in correctly.

Well, today, I put an answer in '19's SF sign thread, instead of the current '21 …

I think they reversed them on the newer cars, not sure if it started in '10 or '11. Saves them 6" of cable...

Nice Shoutout to @Goose17 from Stang Mode on his GT500 YouTube video showing how to check the engine for the Ford recall....I wont get into it with his videos but he is SOL IMO with what he did with his car.

Not to mention that if he replaced his cams, his intaller would have removed and reinstalled the cam tensioner in question. It would be hard to prove his mods would not have been a violation of the warranty coverage starting with the tune. Should be a short phone call to Ford.

I'm pretty sure I remember watching an earlier vid where he was getting new cams.
I've never been a mod guy, but I always assumed that this was just one of the things you accepted past a certain point - mods = no OEM warranty.

Maybe. Just received an email saying it is now back ordered until September?!?!? This is from Ford Performance.

Seriously, they only made so many of these cars. If someone could not plan for this then someone needs to be fired.
Confirmed that Ford Performance does not know what they are doing. After receiving an Order confirmed email, it is anything but and I am not getting the part. Really don't know how that is possible.

I'm in the same boat, confirmed email, they took the payment and after inquiring several times the said they are refunding payments because the supply was less then the demand.
Not impressed with Ford performance customer service, they are seriously hard to reach.

Needless to say I did respond to the "please submit this quick form to rate your shopping experience." link in the so-called confirmation email. :sneaky:

I got my brakes (slotted/drilled rotors and pads), even the lost set, but going to wait to install, when I had tires off and up the air doing struts/shocks, still had some life, now maybe after fun run, might be different story.

Love the mug! 🤟

I worked all day/evening on the car and just stopped for today... this is how I left my brakes... I have a lot of work tomorrow! Plus I have to teach martial arts all evening... then on the road first thing Wednesday morning with either the CFTP (if it’s ready) or some other Mustang.
