    Just texted my buddy who owns the Cobra shop down in North Haven, he's well versed on those motors (lots of his clients are now getting them in his cars) I'll let you know what I hear back

    check the NHTSA for reports of problems for that year. it's your best source to refute the dealer claim if they say otherwise. I haven't heard much negative on the coyote motor.. it's a 7 year old car likely beaten on lol.

    It’s probably for the best. Much less likely to run someone over leaving a car show this way.

    direct response from car owner:

    It tics and is running for now. not sure where the metal shavings are coming from but the oil filter was loaded with them."
