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.

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?

Heard this will kill the value of our cars especially the folks that paid the ADM over MSRP- they ill be just regular cars worth about $5,000 after six years old from what a Ford salesman told me told...

I agree - another year of high production will lower the collectibility and value of our GT350's.

The GT350 is an amazingly engineered Mustang from Ford and I like that there will be more of them, especially the GT350R.  It would be great to have more Ford GT cars too.  But I doubt that will happen despite the demand.  To me it is about the car, not the collectability.  I have no sympathy for the Ford dealers that have tacked on massive ADM amounts and will now be stuck selling their lots full of  2016 units at MSRP or less.  If you bought your car to enjoy for its manufactured intent, which is to drive it, good for you.  It has a decent MSRP considering all the special and exclusive parts (engine, brakes, suspension, etc.).  I would love to see them on the street.  Maybe not as much as the over produced GT500 series, but at least like those  drive a Boss 302, many as a daily driver. 

 

I have never paid over MSRP for any vehicle, including my power toys.  It never makes sense to me.  But I also buy the car to drive and put the posters on the wall for viewing.  I do not have a current edition Ford GT350.  I see them at car shows and a few on some tracks when I visit where they are running.  But I have yet to see them cruising even on weekends.  With more available, hopefully prices will stay down and we can see more of them being enjoyed.

One thing to keep in mind, I dont recall Ford saying it would be a two year run like they said with the GT500 in 06

 

I was one of the first on the block with a 07 GT500 and got lucky, I worked for a Ford store and paid $3000 over msrp

when dealers were getting $25000 over and more.

I am a ford dealer. It seemed as though dealers were sitting on GT350's. The reality is there was a delivery hold on them and we could not deliver them until about one month ago. We were waiting for the oil cooler line recall parts to be available and that recall had to be completed before we could deliver them.
As far as ford building too many of them I just dont see that. My store sells over 2000 new fords per year and i got two for the year. No dealer anywhere gets enough to supply demand thats why the additional markup. When customers are no longer willing to pay that the price goes down. GT500's brought over MSRP right to the last one. Dont get neverous and thinking there is some oversupply of GT350's...its just not the case. For instance, the Pittsburgh region including the are thru Cleveland to buffalo and rochester NY received 7 GT350R's. A very small number for a large market area.

wag before you put the blower on check with VMP Performance.... they did all my work on my 750 hp GT500 that I traded in on the GT350.

 

There performance shop owns a GT350 and they use it for a test mule for their tunes, on thing that the head tuner told me, BJ, you will never see a blower on there car ..... 

this engine wasnt meant to be blown

 

Call them before you do it just to CYA
