I would never consider selling a performance car to someone in an unsafe condition, or if I did, it would be clear to the new owner precisely what the defects were. It's got everything in the world to do with integrity, which leads directly to ethics.

If it were me, I'd leave the 2011 just exactly the way it is. Any performance stuff that's on it would be a big plus when you're negotiating price. If you're buying a Shelby, it's already got improved strut mounts in it, so you don't really need the ones that are on your 2011.

I figured I would get more money by taking off the parts and selling them used than a dealer would add to the price of my trade because of them.

NOt sure the number is 42, I think that might be for the pre-2011 mounts. Any ideas?

The new owner's problem lol

I must have bought my 11 5.0 from you or a family member...

blower install, drag race, blew the tranny/motor then returned to stock, traded and I bought it lol.

+1, I agree 100%. I never like selling a vehicle that needs work on it unless it is that kind of deal. I am selling a 2008 F250 diesel and we had it detailed, serviced and got a brand new state safety inspection so the purchaser KNOWS exactly they are getting.
I feel I HAVE to tell the purchaser every little thing that isn't quite right with the vehicle and I hate doing that. So I just fix everything first.

I counted 43 on the one I had fall apart, but if it makes you feel any better I lost one and put it back together with 42. This is with a '12 V6.
