    I did an old school break in procedure on my '17 and I have not had any engine or oil consumption issues and I am thankful for that.
    I went to my first track day this past weekend (and turned 13k miles) at Sebring and had a great time. I did not baby the car and she took it all. I bounced off the rev limiter several times, hit 140mph on the back straight, sustained 8000rpm in turn 6 (because shifting into 4th mid-turn upset the balance of the car more than I felt comfortable with) and did other things that are not conducive to long engine life.
    Afterward I drove the 2 hours home and then checked the oil. It was still at the max mark.
    I am mentioning all of this because I have read MANY posts on several forums that detail the engine problems my fellow GT350 owners have been experiencing. I have been unable to glean a common cause aside from the fact that this is all too common.
    I am sorry the OP has had to waste valuable drive time dealing with this. I am glad he still seems excited to be a GT350 owner.
    In closing, I am adding my voice to this thread not to gloat over my fortunate experience with the GT350, but to simply offer a counter example of GT350 ownership to those people reading this thread and thinking that all GT350s have major problems.
