Any engine or other issues with the 07 GT500's?

There is a GT500 for sale locally with 6800 miles on it and I don't know much about that year, so I was wondering if there were any engine or drivetrain issues that a guy would be concerned about before buying one? Also, it has the regular headlights. Can you swap them out for those cool looking factory optional ones??

No issues. Just make sure you replace the crank damper from a 2008/2009 before you put a better blower on there. I had a 2008 and cranked the boost up and it ran great with no engine issues. Good luck.

Whats up with the damper? Is it OK if the engine is left stock?

Stock dampener is heavier on 2007 oil than all other years. Puts a lot of stress on crank snout when boost is cranked up. Ford even recommended changing to never style if putting ford racing (tvs) blower on car. If you keep stock you're fine. Just be aware when you get the itch for more HP you will need to replace it.

Plan on an upgraded clutch as well sooner or later. There are plenty TSB's out regarding the stock 07-09 clutch's. Mine had the original up to 31K miles. Many don't get too lucky.
