Shelby's shop is so backed up it's over six months to get your car in on anything major plus it's not going to be part of warranty and you pay lots of $$ to have their techs work on your car our best option is to pull the motor and ship it off put it back in ourselves & take away his sons Kmart tool set!!

This is a GT500KR? Not in 2014 it's not.

The original was offered in 1968 with 2008/2009 being the only other two years a GT500KR was offered.

Maby the kid put KR badges on it wouldn't put it past him a lot of people like to put it on their cars when it's really not KR.. to misrepresent I guess bottom line is its a gt500 with a 5.8 that's really what matters.. I'm just looking to help a buddy fix his car his son f...ed up..

it needs a new motor. you're not rebuilding that one. The cylinder walls aren't sleeved; they use a sprayed coating of iron via plasma arc transfer. if the cylinder walls are scored then the block is junk.

Don't forget about the guy that installed a remote starter kit in his manual mustang (Even though EVERYONE told him not to) and ended up with his car in a pond from having left it in gear when someone hit the button.

OMG those two threads were painfully funny. Brand new 5.8 motor trashed, dude I cannot imagine. I would call John Lund or Justin at VMP and speak with them.
