Hey man. Headgasket failed due to the wrong headgasket fitted from factory (mustang 2.3) - Ford worldwide had a campaign fitting new correct headgaskets / replacing cylinder heads or in some cases new crate motors.FrozenfiST wrote:Congrats and awesome choice!
Just 2 questions tho.
1. How has ford managed to fix the issue with the head gasket?
2. The Pic of the car on the Dyno, only the front wheels are on the rollers? was the AWD disengaged for testing and does that provide accurate results?
After these campaigns i have not heard of any reoccurring headgasket failures m. I know guys that drive their tuned MK3 RS very hard without issues (9k km+ on new gasket)
Here is also a very informative article about this whole saga:

Yes only front wheels on the rollers. You can disconnect the RDU (Rear drive unit) by fuse / unplug it or in my case via COBB.
I won’t say that it is 100% accurate - but im pretty sure it’s close as the whole propshaft etc. still rotates during the dyno proses but the RDU clutches does not engage. Also remember that when the RDU engages the clutches, rear wheels spins faster vs the front wheels so it makes it hard to dyno. Especially when the AWD dyno, front and rear roller, is locked and spinning symmetrical.
