    Actually the manual states the 1000 miles is normal, 500 is not, and Ford considers that to be guarded and to continue to watch. They have not approved many engine replacment at 1 qt / 500, they should because some have popped around there at the track. once I noticed the oil issue I did not track the car.

    Drive it like you stole it which is how I would! Always been told to break in a car like you are going to drive it normally.
    At Road America last year there was a gentleman there running a GT350 that still had the transfer tag in the window.
