Are these the correct oil filters? They are only $5.97 each.


Ed

PS I hope they are as I splurged & bought two. I have a $600K car that uses a $6 filter! I love it!

There is a specific part number for the GT filter and it lists for $7x (yes nuts). As I have stated already in this thread, I am using the specified parts, at least for the warranty period.

FL500S is right.

This makes no sense. The 05/06 is a cartridge. The 17+ is a spin on.

FL-2024 is a cartridge that fits 05/06 only. Instead of $20 for this, get two Mann filters for $13.48.

You were right the first time. FL-500S is one filter recommended by Ford for 17/19.

I don't think it is but it's close. What does Indy GT think?

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 issue either.

I was shown the official FGT filter just yesterday at the dealership. They keep them in stock as there are a number of GTs in my area which get serviced at my dealer. I am still thinking about the regular Motorcraft substitution although we did compare the FGT filter to the "regular" Motorcraft filter for the typical 3.5L engine and there is at least a weight difference between the two filters. Will keep thinking about this one.....

I expect the NGT filter is lighter, because it must be made of titanium to cost what it does, like the Castrol oil.

I went to my non servicing dealer today as I plan to change the oil myself instead of driving 100 miles to the only servicing dealer in Ga. After a few atempts to convince them I was not looking for Mustang oil they finally found the part # in the owners manual. They entered the part # in the computer and it comes up as Motorcraft 5-50.

Recommended motor oil: WSS-M2C931-C

Well, Castrol sponsors the race cars. Getting their money back quart by quart.

I guess all the advertisement value of being associated with one of the hottest supercars is not enough.

Cost of filter, cost of oil, all of concern. Not enuf attention being paid to ensuring that during the oil change that one gets all of the dirty oil out of the car. One possibly:

Greetings New Ford GT forum members/owners, I am Joe the Ford GT technician at Pat Milliken Ford, I enjoy reading your discussion on this forum and encourage those of you who are the hands on type who love working on your cars. However I have to advise you all that the motorcraft chart that's in this thread is an Error. Their are reports of installing FL-500s oil filters in The new Ford GT and have failed. These FL500s filters can not handle the higher pressures of the dry sump system in the new ford GT. SO PLEASE DO NOT USE THE FL500s FILTERS. I know the cost of the recommended filter is much more but better spending a few extra dollars on a filter then a motor. I have notified Ford to make a correction and they will be working on that, As always we at Pat Milliken Ford are here to help so please feel free to call us with any questions you may have,
