Oh no, that was pretty sudden. Hope everything is okay.A very bittersweet day - the car is now listed for sale in classified's:
Anyone interested can reach out on here. Hate to see the car go, but life priorities are quickly changing. Would love to see this car go to a fellow mustang track enthusiast. An asking price is listed, but any reasonable offer will be considered.

Well that's good to hear, and I understand how difficult the decision is.Yep, nothing bad prompted the sale - just future life events (all good things) that will demand much more time than giving this car the attention (and $$$) it needs. Therefore, would rather get the car on the market earlier on, especially while it is in good condition, rather than continue driving it and holding back (knowing I will have to sell it later.)
Was thinking the same thing but decided against posting it.I obviously don't know your situation but just in case the situation is having a baby which usually prompts these kind of things, don't sell the car. If it's something else, carry on. Either way none of my business.
Running Royal Purple XPR 10W40, only street/highway miles are to and from the track. I get very little oil in the catch can, even after running in 100+ degree temps like the last few outings. I’m sure each engine varies with the amount of blow by, but I like having the extra viscosity, especially when it’s hot.Despite the car now technically being for sale, still finishing small projects in preparation for the last few events.
Finished mounting the oil catch can, was one of the easier projects I've done. Hopefully this helps with the whole 'keep the oil in the engine and out of the intake' thing.

Also spaced the oil cooler down a bit so that it sits more in the lower fascia opening.

Next up: fixing the oil pressure gauge, installing the hood louvers, and putting the car back together. Plenty of time before the next event.
Quick question on oil for those with more experience tracking coyotes (specifically gen 2's.)
I have always run 5w30 in this engine.. given the duty cycle of this engine and the amount of blow-by noticed, is this okay? Should I be running something heavier (10w40 or 5w50)? This car now only sees hard track driving, I don't drive it on the street unless it's for a quick shakedown. Don't want to start a huge debate, just asking for those who hard-track a Coyote to provide feedback.
