    I am thinking because it is supposed to be race oriented, WOT on a track, oil in the heads etc needs to get back to the pan. A larger oil capacity also helps for oil cooling and engine cooling. Oil is part of keeping engine cool.

    Not so much keeping turbos lubricated, the stock 3.5 ecoboost is only 6 quarts.

    This, it's all about keeping things cool. C7 z06 is dry sump and still takes like 9.5 qts.

    Yes, but I still think it's to keep the turbos lubricated and cooled also so you don't bake the oil in there from not enough oil capacity.

    Regular 3.5 EB is 375hp, FGT EB is pushing almost double that hp # from the same displacement and I'm sure those turbos are pumping quite a bit of psi of boost to make the #'s.

    Does anyone know the 13/14 model GT500 and 15-19 model GT350 0-100-0 times?

    After this long, why wouldn't they just produce the standard full performance numbers? This sounds like it can take the gold medal in underwater basket weaving.

    We're getting off topic here, but boost doesn't matter as far as this topic is concerned, it's RPM. The regular 3.5 is a truck engine and probably rarely exceeds 4,000 rpms. The FGT is designed to live at the higher rpms, where oil matters a whole lot more. Modern turbos are also water cooled, the oil is purely for lubrication.

    You're basically saying what I'm saying...…………….just in a different way.

    Not quite, we're both commenting on cooling but I'm saying it's for the engine not the turbos.

    The oil is for both, cooling and lubricating all components whether it's the engine or the turbos. The basic topic was oil capacity seeing that the new Shelby is wet sump and 11 quarts vs. if they went dry sump they probably wouldn't need that much oil to do the job.

    With the FGT having 15+ quarts DS lubing and cooling that EB TT engine it's probably necessary to have that major amount of oil for that engine just to make sure the oil will circulate through the turbos and not have the oil heated up too much.

    Heat dissipated over 15 quarts of oil will be better than the same amount of heat dissipated over only 6 quarts (even though the regular 3.5 EB isn't making the same power or spinning the turbos as much as the FGT EB engine).

    I NEED that t-stat housing...I bet it would not take too much to retrofit it to a Gen 1.

    Just noticed that it has a cartridge style oil filter with plastic housing. Im honestly a little surprised that they didnt spec aluminum for that.

    The HE seems a little small. And why no fans?

    Why do you not think there's fans?

    It looks similar to the 13-14 HE and they didn't have fans.

    VMP to the rescue with a HE for this car with fans or a fan kit to attach to stock HE.

    Ahh. I would just assume the main fan pulls air through the whole stack?
