Just check the VIN plate on the door then when you get it then while you're checking the fuses. If it's two weeks away, I'm guessing it will have a production date of late April early May.

Front Right side. And dont forget the infamous Shaker 500 cd player probs. Put in some new cds, and drive all over the place. If it skips, or gives a Disc Error message, have em put in a new radio/cd player. I and several others had to do that. Ive even heard of one guy who's on his FOURTH player!! If mine fornicates up again, Im gonna wait till the warantee is almost up and get it replaced then. I figure they gotta have their feces together in 3 damn years![:@]

That would be me. I was much pleased with it today I must say. Got in the car at work ( in a parking garage ) it played fine. Went to the local electronics junkie shop, parked in the 95 degree heat, walked around for an hour or so, got in the car, started it up, after about 20 seconds of it trying to read the disc, it gave the bad disc error and started ejecting. Good job Ford. Money well spent.

I made the choice not to go with any shaker system. I'm going to customize my own system to make it better. I could do allot more with the 1200 they were charging for the shaker. I don't have to worry about that to much. But when the car comes in I'm going to be check every angle seriously. Im check all the paint for blemishes, bubbles, and scratches. Im climbing inside the car making sure there is not tears and checking all seat belts.

If your paint quality is anything like mine, you will drive yourself nuts inspecting it.

300 hp is at the crank... 260-270hp on a dyno is at the rear wheels (aka "rwhp"). There is always a loss through the drivetrain on any car (rule of thumb figure about 12%-15%). Actually, if anything, the 4.6L 3V is slighlty under-rated at 300hp
