I'm sure Dave will create sub-forums for tech and maintenance as needed, so I'll just put this here until then.

What does changing the engine air filter involve? The manual states that it's a dealer serviced item.

Have not done it yet but didn't look too bad once the belly pans are off.

Looks like you will be removing the belly pans quite a bit. Air filter change requires belly pan R&R.

Thanks for checking into this. Looking at the placement of the airbox, I couldn't tell if the filters could be accessed solely by removing the belly pans.

So used to the 05 being so friendly to work on.... This one.... Might be more challenging.

You have to take off a pan on each side, The air box has SS latches.. Not hard to do but it will take time and a lift will helpful..

It isn't too hard. You have to remove the engine undertray, loosen clamp to the air cleaner outlet pipe (left hand side), disconnect MAF sensor. Keep in mind there are certain torque specs for all of these bolts, nuts,.... Hence dealer recommended install. :) Parts will be available to only GT customers (with their VIN) themselves and have to be ordered through a servicing dealer with a form filled out. Let me know if you need us to order the part!

I wish I had a service dealer close to me that I could trust. The one near me, Future Ford, has been mean to me (I have another post somewhere about it). All the Michigan owners are lucky to have Milliken Ford.

A little early yet. Most servicing Dealers haven't had their training or set up the requirements.

I emailed my concierge & they sent me a list of local delivery dealers (5 of them) & the one servicing dealer. I went to visit the servicing dealer, Future Ford, which is only 20 miles from me but they were rude. They wouldn't let me speak with anyone involved with servicing or delivery of the NGTs. The Internet manager came out to tell me someone would call me. When one of the managers called me a week later he thought I was talking about a Mustang GT. I tried to explain the difference but he didn't believe I was getting a NGT. I'm planning on getting my NGT through Milliken. They will actually fly out to meet me at my house when the car arrives (summer '18). Kevin was super nice & very NGT knowledgeable. DBK & others use Milliken.

Really rude. Some people simply don't understand how much business is lost by such a unthoughful behavior. But voting with the pocket is always a good thing.

Thanks Gene. We wish we could help all of you out with service. We have Ian Murphy as the go-to Service Advisor and I believe one of the best mechanics in the country, Joe Sicoli, as our GT mechanic. They both take this GT process very seriously as some of you can attest to already. We can definitely help everyone with sales and parts! Again if you choose us for sales I will fly out to your location to handle all the paperwork at delivery. :)

My owner, Brian Godfrey, and I look forward to meeting more of you in Utah!

Maybe they will be nice to you! They can't be rude to everyone & stay in business. I can bet no one from that dealership will go to our Rally to meet us & buy us a drink (I added that part in for Kevin - LOL!).

PS Sorry about the thread hijack.
