Well, kinda sorta...My son bought a 2019 Mustang GT several months ago. He lives in WI so I don’t get to see the car much unless he visits. Last time he was here his car left a little oil stain in the gayrage. Was like WTF?? I told him next time he comes out we would change oil and check for leaks. Last night my son spent the night because he had to come out pick up some stuff and mail. We put the car up on the ramps. Low and behold we found the leak. The original oil filter, which was a smaller generic looking filter, had loosened and was dripping....ugh. Spun on tight a new Motorcraft oil filter and filled it with 10 quarts of Mobil1 Synthetic. Did the now infamous Gladiator Racing Inc mod, K&N drop in air filter, and headed to “Mejico”....according to the onboard timing, the 5 oh ran a 13.1 1/4 without heating up the all seasons. Needless to say we are looking for some used drag radials. Should be a solid 12 sec ride. Gladiator Racing Inc is back....talking shit and never racing!!!

Automatic vs automatic. There will be no compromises for advantages/disadvantages.

Only if you are on economy mode for a track burger.
This is the 10 speed mustang correct? If so hell no Rofl. I know now badass these cars are stock. It’s the reason I want one so bad. It’s a god transmission.

I think there might be a ford specific TQ spec for that oil filter. IDK what the spec is but I can tell you that an s2000 oil filter is 17ft/lbs FWIW.

Mine went 12.3 factory stock. The track apps isn't all the accurate. Get a Dragy, I'll bet you're already into the 12s.

Like anything else, they fail under power. Mine went out like 600-650hp.

What failed, and how expensive is it to make them reliable at that power level?

If I remember correctly, my '17 Escape that I bought brand new had a blank unmarked oil filter on it from the factory. Could be a cost savings to use oil filters without the printing. I thought it was weird.
