Was researching oil used in the new Ford GT. Owner's manual says to use a new oil - Castrol Edge Supercar 5w-50. Looking at the specs of this oil, it meets Ford WSS-M2C931-C, which is the same spec for the GT350. Looks like this Castrol oil was formulated specifically for Ford.

Doesn't appear to be on store shelves yet ... maybe at Ford dealerships.

I still don't have a source for it. We will not be seeing any of the new GTs at my dealer.

Since it is Ford WSS-M2C931-C compliant, will work in new Shelby GT350 as well.

I imagine it would work just fine in a Focus RS too, the Motorcraft 5W-50 has been shown to shear really badly.

I'm doubtful of that. They've had a 5w50 for a while now since previous Shelby vehicles (GT500, for example) spec'd it. The "Supercar" branding is new but is purely a marketing exercise.

Maybe, but the current Castrol Edge 5w50 is not a Ford WSS-M2C931-C spec'd oil. Oil that the current 5w50 replaced was spec'd for Ford WSS-M2C931-B but again, has been replaced. New Castol 5w50 has a higher ZDDP % for use in older, classic cars with flat tappets. I would not recommend running a non-Spec'd oil in a $350K+ auto.

I thought the thread should at least have a video of the car.

Jay seems to like his.

That's because real engines and manufacturers know that thin/water oils are good for nothing but CAFE and fuel economy numbers and NOT performance or engine longevity! Doesn't Ferrari and other supercars also spec a much thicker oil? Hmmm. maybe all this thin oil stuff is related to CAFE [censored] and .000001% mpg increase.... smile
