Oil changes

Haven't changed the oil on my 014 GT yet. Recomendations on oil and filters? Where should I place the jack?

I bought royal purple 10w40 and a RP filter from pep-boys. Waiting to hit 3k miles to switch original oil out.

I have not changed the oil yet on my 2014 GT. It has a little over 3,400 miles on it. I have not decided yet on what mileage I'm going to change at. I'm thinking at 5,000 miles. I've already bought 5W-20 Motorcraft oil and a Motorcraft FL500s filter for when I do change it.

We use Royal Purple with all of our AM company cars and Employee Mustangs. RP makes top notch oil and has yet to prove us wrong. I highly recommend RP for any model Mustang!

Just throwing in my .02 cents!

Royal Purple has changed their formula and is no longer a full synthetic. Food for thought.

Thanks for the info. I do have a preferred account for Amsoil but have never used it. A friend of mine is a dealer. I'm not a big synthetic fan due to multiple oil analysis's I did on my 98 chevy truck using both synthetic and conventional oil back in the early 2000's and how the truck ran with a synthetic in it. It was noisier, used more oil, and my oil analysis wear results were worse than the conventional oil I was using. I felt I wasn't getting the results I wanted for the money spent so I went completely back to conventional oil and have been happy with it's performance since.

Granted, synthetic oils as well as all oils in general have improved since that time, but I have never read on the bobistheoilguy website in the oil analysis section where synthetic oils performed that much better than conventional.

I may change my mind at a later date but who knows. As far as using a heavier viscosity, I'm undecided on that and need to do some more research before I feel comfortable deviating from Ford's recommendations. Everyone says that there are no internal differences between the Mustang track pack cars that require 5W-50 and the regular GT cars that require 5W-20 so I guess a heavier weight would not hurt my regular GT if that info is true.

If you want to split hairs, the Amsoil is better than MC, but the difference is negligible. Seriously, I read the SVT thread, and the analysis. Yes Amsoil out performed the MC, but you have to ask yourself, what do you really need?

I'm putting in redline 5w50 with a rp oil filter. I hear redline fluids are top notch.

I like redline,but since the oil doesn't shear 5-50 will give you to high of an oil pressure,switch to 10-40 summer,5-30 winter if you live where it get's cold.
