If you peruse other forums dedicated to the likes of Challengers and Camaros you will find the same issues plaguing a certain percentage of their owners as well.
I don't see Camaros rolling a ring with a mild tune, or trannies frequently whining like a Hewland straight cut box. When they replace parts with new OEM parts that have a different low-friction coating, then the original parts were issued wrong. As for the Challenger, Dodge encrypts the ECM to prevent tunes. If Ford wants to blame tunes for blown #8's, they need to explain why this has never been the case with the 4.6, some of which are banging 600+ w/o rolling a ring. It would also be helpful if they would not market the car as a blank slate just itching for the aftermarket, and then deny claims when folks scratch that itch. If the car can't handle a mild tune, then they should lock the ECM.

First off the camaro’s have more than double the TSB’s the mustangs do, GM also invented the “customer satisfaction program” to fix future items without it counting against their government tracked TSB and recall count… look it up air bag fixed convertible top fixes, (don’t even get started on those lemons) so you got a tuner that screwed you and leaned it out too much or turned off or down your knock sensors (before you fly off into a rage on how you have a great tuner, look it up, call bama, call evolution, ask them what caused these issues and why they have pretty much vanished, it’s not a giant ford cover up) you should be happy ford let you strip off your aftermarket items and they fixed it under warranty!!! These engines run close to the ragged edge stock, you lean it out too much, desensitize a knock sensor and toss in some 91 gas on a 93 tune and push it… (not saying you put 91 in that’s what happed on another case) and bang.. as for the trans.. sometimes bad parts happen, nothing you can do about it, before you blame ford you do realize that ford had input into the transmission gearing but that it’s built by another company right? It’s kind of like blaming ford if your Pirelli tire developed a bulge in it? The transmission is developed by GETRAG.. I understand this is a fly by night mom and pop company… but it’s their transmission. You think ford went to them and said “we need this gearing, this size case, this weight, oh and built in china!!” I doubt that came up. As for your new parts with “low friction coating” I assume you have something on this other then the word of a service advisor?
