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?

Am I correct in saying that the 2016 GT350s all came with an engine builders plate on the right side of top of the engine?  It'd be about 3" X 5" affixed to a special area on what appears to be part of the plastic airbox or something system just forward to the Monte Carlo brace.

 

The reason I ask is because I've heard that they all did...and guess what?  

MINE DIDN'T!   :rant2:   :swear:

 

In the area where I think it would go I see what appears to be a worm-crawl of adhesive.

Mine either missed it at the factory, fell off during shipment or somehow fell off after I took delivery.

 

I appreciate your help in determining the reality.

You are correct. There should be a plate with an engraved signature of both engine builders on it. They build the engines on the niche line at Romeo engine plant. They work in teams of two and then sign the plate at completion.

Thanks, Don!  And thanks to MustBD2.

I was able to get a replacement Builders' Plate!  Something the dealership (Jordan Ford in San Antonio) couldn't or wouldn't do.

Ford came through!

My 2016 Shelby GT350 is WHOLE once again!

Its amazing what good will a store could earn if they just took a few minutes to help someone with a need that might be out of left field

 

Glad you got it !
