sorry for the downtime today as we moved to a faster server -

@  KT/GT : (10 July 2017 - 10:29 AM)

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.

@  smokum : (10 July 2017 - 10:08 AM)

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

@  pguile131 : (09 July 2017 - 08:11 PM)

What is normal oil consumption

@  JohnCappola : (08 July 2017 - 10:05 AM)

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?

I just traded in my 2012 zl1 for a 2017 gt350 and noticed on the ride home that 6th gear immediately muffles the glorious exhaust note.  Is there any way I can fix this problem without f*cking with the warranty.  Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Nope the car automatically closes the valves back to normal mode when in 6th. gear. And you couldn't change that even if you didn't care about warranty without getting a code.

It is my understanding that Ford's thinking was that if you are cruising in 6th gear you want the cabin to be quite.  6th gear is really more of an overdrive and if you are cruising in overdrive you are not motoring around therefore you don't need the loud exhaust.  Not saying I agree with it, just sharing what i have heard on this.

 

I'm with you, I like the sound of the exhaust and hate that it goes away in 6th.

Actually you can fix it. When the car is running and the exhaust valves are turned on, go to the back and disconnet the wires that turns them off and on. This way they will be on all the time including sixth gear
