FedEx ground was about $1/qt from SC to VA. You may be better off finding a west coast vendor.Autopartstomorrow has it for 8.89/qt and free shipping. Is shipping free @ K-Mansparts?
I don't think it's the same, because of regulatory requirements. People debate oil quality ad nauseum. I have yet to hear of a factory supercharged Ford engine that suffered any damage from using Ford recommended oil and service schedule, but the interweb being what it is, I'm sure there is someone who insists the current oil sucks.Is the same fluid that ford used in early GT prduction? I thought they quit making that stuff, it was significantly more expensive than the typical 5w50.
I would love to see the results of a Rotella oil test after using it in a FGT.No, its not the same oil developed for the GT. I will not get into a debate on if its 'good enough'.
I use Rotella T6 which works very well in this engine with good oil analysis results to back it up.
The closest analysis reports I have are from 36,000 miles in a GT500, when I do my next change on the GT, it will get an analysis done too.
If you would like to do a bit of reading on the subject as applied to GT500 engines which are very similar, please read this thread:
