ended up putting an offer in on a short sale up here. Smaller townhouse, only 2 bedrooms but 2.5 bath, finished basement, garage and fireplace. 235k and it needed a lot of work. Got word back that it will probably be a long ass process (took the bank 7 months to approve the asking price) so I think I'm going to withdraw it.
I would say the same for the camaro. Step from 5th to 6th generation was huge. They drive completely different.

Iíve been driving fine without it installed, just on springs for the last year. But it will go on with the Koniís and Camber/Caster Plates.
Bump steer doesn't bother me. But thanks for the heads up. My 01 had it pretty noticeable but I never put the bump steer on it.

If you buy the Ford coolers it wont void warranty. In fact nothing voids the warranty unless they can prove the part caused the failure. The GT350 has coolers factory.

Even though I "had" to have a new bottom end put in my 150 I still would chose a 5.0 any day. Yes the ecos are fun to drive but reliability was my concern.
I say "had" cause I read somewhere that the issue mine had is now considered normal. I'll verify this in a couple minutes.

I'll buy older Ford's, or maybe something like a fusion or focus. As far as pickups or "muscle cars," hell naw.

My cold start rattle and Rising oil level and oil that smells like fuel was documented, on YouTube and everything, my own video FYI. Dealership wouldn't acknowledge. Traded the fucking piece of shit off for peace of mind even though I had a warranty.

To this day I wish I'd listened to DJ when he told me not to buy it, right as I was at the dealership signing papers

Well hopefully he doesn't have issues. Every year that passes newer trucks have the same issues. I see 2015s on the board with cold start issues now. In 2017 they redesign the EcoBoost and try to address the issues but time will tell. The Gen 1 3.5 EcoBoost was very poorly designed
