Larry, I experienced the cam failure at approx. 72k. The problem is I hadn't put 300 miles on the car. The failure occurred before I could even begin to enjoy the car. I understand everyone's frustration with Ford. I originally took my car to the local Ford dealer to see what was wrong. After a $300 diagnostic fee they said they could fix it for around $4900. I laughed at him as I called a rollback to come and pick my lifeless SHO up. I found a machine shop that drilled and pinned my new cams for me and I ended up at a total cost of around $2700 to $2900 in repairs. I have since enjoyed the car tremendously. I have been very impressed with the throttle response and handling characteristics. This car is not for the meek.
