Some are aware that I had an issue a week ago with excessive smoke after a restart from an hour drive. After the "up in smoke" movie, I checked the oil level 15min later and it was over a quart low.
Fast forward to a week later and the car hasn't reproduced this issue and it goes into the dealer in a week. Of course my fear will be, nothing is wrong, but obviously its related to 17-0007 TSB.
Until I get it resolved all mods will be on hold and at this point Im not even motivated to do them.
Heres the video of it

Update,
Took my car in Monday and on Tuesday a Ford Engineer looked at it and determined the smoke was the result of the cylinder heads which is part of the TSB 17-0007. Ford ran a compression test, oil flow test along with a fuel trim test that Im assuming was to verify no issues with motor and the land rings.
Im picking her up today since it will be a week or so before the heads arrive.

Good deal Vert - At least now it will be taken care of, and you can get back to enjoying it. BTW - I finally got news the parts are in for my airbag recall, so I'll be bringing my car in Monday, and I plan to take a look and hopefully test drive the FS.

That's good to hear Mike. I can't remember, did you end up getting the blend door actuator fixed?

Not yet Vert, I'm going to have them take care of that when I bring it in for the airbag.
