Wow that is ambitious. Just for lack of headache, the later built 2017's and 2018's are the ones that didn't need major engine work. Beyond that for your purposes they're all the 'same'. (The later ones had some carbon fiber parts and a different front differential) If you are buying from a Ford dealership and it's a 2016 or early-mid 2017 model, the NUMBER ONE QUESTION to ask (and verify) is if the headgasket has been replaced. If it hasn't, walk away and purchase one that has. Linked is the customer satisfaction program put in place for those engines that needed work.
Congrats on your engagement.

An RS cake is very cool.
I was going to ask, if the cake exchange would be dainty, or leave body damage on the cake?
Heres what Martha says…(I still can’t visualize her hangin with Snoop)

Very interesting but for what I am paying for the cake I will not be smashing it. Plus didnt collision on it 🤣

Wasn't there someone else on here who was getting married and his fiancé said his RS must go? Maybe you can get the car from him or maybe some other trade? LOL.
