I'm going to use Motul motor oil for my track use and was looking for suggestions on the oil filter to use. Best I can find is guys are saying to stick with the Ford OEM filter. Any suggestions?

@  KT/GT : (10 July 2017 - 10:28 AM)

I figured out how to disable to default valves in the pipes so the car's exhaust can be in track/sport mode all the time. With the car running and the exhaust in track mode (valves open) just unplug the wire connection at the rear of the car right by the exhaust tips. The valves must be open when you do this as the wires disconnected keeps it in whatever position they are in when you disconnect them. When you start the car it shows you a warning that the exhaust mode is not available but it goes off in 2 to 3 seconds and you do not have to hit "ok" to get rid of it. Much easier than changing it to track/sport mode each time.

Million dollar question ..... I would read the posts under oil consumption and you will get a better idea.

What is normal oil consumption

I am new to this forum and would like to learn more about the 2016 Shelby GT-350.

@  KT/GT : (03 July 2017 - 06:08 PM)

I also will be using this car on the track and I have been told to disable the air bags as they have been activating on the rumble strips. Is this as simple as taking out a fuse?

@  KT/GT : (03 July 2017 - 06:07 PM)

Anyone out there know how to keep the exhaust in track/sport mode 100% of the time?

@  smokum : (27 June 2017 - 11:45 AM)

The car is a great car and cant blame you for sleeping in !! .... Enjoy

I'm wanting to purchase a cold air intake kit for my '16 GT350.  I've seen the one K&N offers, but does anyone else have any other recommendations?  Is a tune required?

JLT makes a popular intake. Most require a tune.

I saw that one as well. Either way, I live in Commie CA, so I'd have to order and ship to my father in TX and he'd have to mail it to me.  Is it personal preference for the JLT over the K&N, or is the JLT better?

It looks better than the k&n and I'm sure it flows a bit better. It's all over YouTube.

I have done business with JLT for a LONG time and they have great products. My 750HP GT500 used only JLT products. 

 

Now the tune, not as critical on normally aspirated car  as it was on my GT500, I went with VMP for my tune. 

 

But a tune and a JLT CAI from JLT I would endorse whole heartedly.

 

Once I get my oil consumption issue behind me, I will opt for this as well as a set of good headers and do it all at once.

 

I want to FEEL the difference !!!!

Ok, it really sounds like JLT is the way to go!  I'll keep reading up and look on youtube some more.

 

Smokum, I noticed you previously owned a '90 SHO.  My first car was a '93 SHO...loved it!

Back In the day I was very involved in SHO's..... first super charged SHO in the country featured in Super Ford Magazine and learned over a period of time

to do tranny work ... pull motors and completely rebuild them etc .... had a great side business for a period of time since not many people knew how to work

on these cars.

Oh, nice!  We subscribed to the SHO magazine back in the day, and had all the "bolt-on" upgrades available...nothing as serious as a super charger, but still pissed off plenty of fox-body 5.0 owners.  The only downside was the 60k maintenance required on the valves.  You HAD to find a specialist, because none of the Ford dealers knew anything about the car.  The first time around, everything went great, but it was never the same after the second time around...

I learned how to do take the intake off .... than i learned how to do take all the front covers off for belts and water pump and CPS sensor replacement ...... just slowly

step by step got deeper into the motor and finally pulled a motor.

 

The SHOFORUM which is semi defunct had tons of how to pages to do such work and lots of people you could email
