Oil change intervals?

How often do you Shelby owners change the oil? The manual doesn't treat the GT500 any different than a Taurus, so what is typical?

If you follow Ford's guide lines using Motorcraft oil then you should be good every 5K.

Some on here use Royal Purple and Royal Purple claims 12,000miles under light conditions.

I still change mine every 3-4k miles, like I always have.

yea it depends, the GT500 uses different weight oil as well and its rather costly. If its full synth you should be fine till 5k if you dont drive that much in a year just change it once a year.
