Knew of this quite awhile back. Seems under certain or extenuating circumstances the #8 piston in the road runner engine overheats. Taking into consideration that motor oil is an engine coolant and antifreeze, not sure which would be more to blame. The repair or a fix is to install a bypass hose utilizing the freeze plug ports in that sector of the block. Allows extra coolant to reach that piston area for additional cooling.

Have heard nothing more on this as of lately at all. Would still be an ongoing issue and have never seen a TSB recognizing the problem either. Pretty sure I have my info correct but any further updates would be good to know of. https://lmr.com/prod...tang-TSB-Recall http://www.mustangsd...-horsepower-v8/

Interesting refresher, still can't find anything on piston overheat. https://www.topspeed...2-ar132541.html Ok, found this: https://www.svtperfo...failure.873216/ My point being, I just think things up to keep the ball rolling.

Lmao, how overpriced is this kit? Yes, laugh a lot at things posted and everything I post. Attached File  image.jpeg   144.79KB   0 downloads
