Oil Dipstick Pops Out During Driving

My supercharged (Stock Bottom End) 471 RWHP 2006 GT oil dipstick pops out at least 4 inches while hard driving. I know this means excessive pressure in the crankcase. I have read the first thing to do is to check the PCV valve. Am I correct to say 06 doesn't have one, just 2 unrestricted tubes? If this is correct am I safe to assume my engine is in big trouble due to blow by? Should I stop driving it? If so what are my options? Any help would be appreciated….

No pcv on your mustang. I had the same thing happen to me on my 06 GT. I bought the engine billet dress up kit from AM. after driving i always pop my hood to cool the engine down and noticed the dip stick was up about 3 inches. The problem was the O ring on the dip stick was to big. I went to Ace Hardware and bought a couple of smaller O rings and found the best fit. Problem was fixed! It has never popped out since.

Bro not for nothing…..I thought of the worst; Blow by, bad cylinders, deleting PCV system and I checked your idea, guess what, the dipstick didn't even have an o-ring. Bought a 2 cent o-ring, drove it briskly, and the damn thing stays put…..Thanks again…great advice…...
