I ended up going to Norris Ford in Dundalk, MD. They are litterally 5 mins away from where my G/F and I live. They are a SMALL dealership, and NEVER have good techs staffed on the weekends, but the SM was nice, called me ever few hours to check in w/ me about the status of the car while they were replacing the motor and they even washed it for me when they were done. Big Ford Customer Service also called and made sure that I was OK and knew what was going on. I can see that Ford doesn't like replacing engines just on a whim, but when they DO, they make sure the customer is taken care of.

On topic though, I REALLY need to get in there and get the codes off of the new engine and see if it's a 2013-build or a left-over 2012.

The purchasing dealer also gave me quite the run around about the O2 sensor and me having the mufflers off. They tried to say that "there is a lot of burnt rubber under there, and the engine was out. We think you've raced it."
"Um, yeah I raced it. I took it to Capitol a few times in the last year. What of it? On the FORD website you have a picture of a Mustang GT doing a burnout as an advertisement for the 3.73 rear gear set. And here is my paper work from the repair shop that pulled the engine to replace the Driverside subframe after my accident. Fix my car."
"Sorry, we are not going to touch it with the mufflers off. It's causing your O2 sensor issue. The wires are frayed and cut."
"Show me"
"You aren't allowed in the shop area."
(I went home and looked, wires are NOT frayed)
