Trivial i know....but gesssh the 2011 SHO sounds like a cheap Yugo when starting.

Rabb....thats exactly what i am refering too....my GM cars popped right over...but Fords seem to always need to crank a time or two before firing ? Im new to Fords' date=' love my SHO....but still learning their little quirks.[/quote']

My 2000 Duratec Taurus had a plastic intake manifold, there was a reflash to deal with backfires breaking the manifold. I would guess that the longer cranking is to clear the intake tract of any fuel vapours that might linger and cause a backfire. Just a guess mind you.
