    Gene, to answer your question, you are correct. In a dry sump lubrication system one of the objectives is to get the rotating crank away from parasitic losses of churning thru puddles of oil. That robs engine output power. So a dry sump system places a shallow pan under the crank to provide a...

    Frank, you are absolutely correct! These guys are really beating me upppp…:) So Paul, I believe MM most probably has the engine oil fill procedure down pretty well now that we are in the 3rd year of production. My car has approx 290 miles on it so I would say it is pretty much as delivered...

    As always DBKs recommendation to use ONLY the FGT part specific filter on our V6 engine is absolutely correct. The earlier posting (believe it was Gary's) of possible use of the FL500S is in ERROR and is being corrected. Kendall lays sound foundation as to the difference between the two filters...

    The Eco"boost" engine in our NFGT has forced air induction to higher MP levels. Increased robustness for the duty cycle anticipated for the NFGT. Whole multitude of answers here, higher operating rpm power band with different crankshaft harmonics due to different fluid dampner, stiffness of...

    Paul, back on topic, good for you! I plan to use the Motorcraft 5W-50 oil which is easily sourced.

    Italianjoe, we appreciate the detailed differences in the NFGT V6 which you have listed above. And as Kendall states it is a pretty special V6 engine. As Paul also states, I too do not want to be a jerk about this topic, but the above listed V6 attributes do NOT state the engine has a flat...

    Once again Xcentric is CORRECT! The 3.5L engine in the NFGT is NOT a flat "PLANE" crankshaft. Very difficult if not impossible (see above) to use a flat plane crank with the internal dynamics of a V6. Actually the use of a flat "PLANE" (not plan) crankshaft accentuates acceleration rates...

    PAT MILLIKEN FORD QUIZ QUESTION OF THE DAY!

    Terry, Kevin should have excluded Lightweight owners who optioned the Exterior Accent Color package. But you did quickly identify the three differences. Looking forward to seeing you car in person and we can compare...

    Thanks for asking Ed. I have it on good authority the Motorcraft 5W-50 Full Synthetic oil will work just fine in our 3.5L engine. This question was asked internally early into the program and the response was this oil will work just fine. And I do not believe there is warranty liability exposure...

    Supercharger pump

    While Gary is correct, the "supercharger pump" is mechanically driven by a belt off the crankshaft pulley. Thus when the engine is running (the crankshaft is spinning) the supercharger pump is in operation by default. Now perhaps Tipo874 is referring to another system loosely associated with...

    Camilo on track

    Actually this is a pretty good instructional video for those tracking their GTs, old or new. The GT350R owner Nick and his driver Austin tell us this is an advanced driver session. Both Camilo and Austin do a pretty good job of driving the Spring Mountain course and I applaud Camilo for putting...

    THREE DAYS AT COTA

    Nicely put Dave. Good feedback and sounds like you had a great time. Now if Nick and Blake had been there, that would have been a photo.
