Blackstone likes this report, but I'm curious about the titanium. I'd love y'alls' input on this UOA.

Thanks! I’ve only used Motorcraft 5W-50 oil and the Motorcraft FL-2069-ST spin-on filter that the 2015-2017.5 GT350s use. Ford switched to a cartridge style filter in the middle of the 2017 model year due to the canister filter working loose when not properly torqued.

Not sure if you would be interested but Ford Performance Parts came out with a kit to "update" the first run Voodoo engines to the later style with the cartridge filter M-6881-52CA

I did see that and gave it some thought, but I’ve figured out how to easily torque the canister filter to 16-18 ft-lbs and have plenty of track days without issue. It seems that provided it is torqued to spec there’s no issue with the original design. That said, plenty of dealerships couldn’t figure it out and ruined a lot of Voodoos as a result.

I do wonder how the cartridge filters compared to the canister. Per my UOA is seems that the canister does an excellent job.

Throw out a few pics of your GT350R. Don’t see many of those out on the road 👍

After 1700 miles, any oil will yield a good report with a healthy engine..

Ha! Thanks for all the interest! I've had the GT350R since 7/1/2016. It's the only car I haven't gotten bored of after a year or two. Here's some pictures from Circuit of the Americas in Austin. I've also had it at Utah Motorsports Campus and MSR Houston.

Titanium. Isn’t the 5w50 Castrol Edge Pro / Supercar “infused with titanium” per their marketing lingo? Not sure this would show up on a UOA. Perhaps Castrol is Motocrafts’ source.

CP is (or was) the producer of Motorcraft oil, and they also use a Titanium-based additive package.
