2010 Ford Mustang GT: Hunger Pings

July 20, 2011


Our Mustang never fails to impress me with its ridiculously wide powerband. Every time I get on the freeway, I wind out a gear or two just to feel the 5.0's smooth delivery.

Last night, I performed my usual ritual and got a minor surprise -- pinging. Heard it in the background as the tach was nearing redline. Wasn't the worse pinging I've ever heard, but it was more than just a single detonation. Since any pinging is bad pinging we'll definitely keep an eye on the 5.0 to make sure this was an isolated event.
