I just received my new 2012 V6 Mustang. Love it. But one thing I noticed when I popped the hood was that the aluminum on the engine is very scaley with lots of tiny little cracks. I asked the dealer and all he said was it is a cast engine. Duhh.

Does anyone else have this look of the engine. It is in the front and the most exposed part of the engine from looking at the front of it.

your right it is not cast iron, but he was saying it was a cast aluminum engine and that is why it looks like it does.
