I have a 2013 track package and the oil is 5W-50 as it says on the filler cap. Every year when I go to the auto parts store for oil I have to argue with the counter person that my car takes 5W-50 and not 5W-20. Apparently there is no reference in their system for track package cars. I have to explain to them it is essentially the same as the Boss 302 because it has the oil cooler.
Yeah, turns out I'm an idiot. I thought the cap said 5W-20, but it turns out it does indeed say 5W-50. D'oh! 馃槼

Also the track pack cars hold more oil. 8.5 quarts I think? So just in case the guy decided to put a 5W50 filler cap on it for whatever reason....When you do change the oil you will be able to tell for sure.

It鈥檚 only a half of a quart more..... I own a 2014 GT non track pack and it takes 8 quarts when I change it .

My 鈥13 track pack seems happy with 8 quarts. I鈥檝e never had to put more than that in to reach the full line. Maybe they hold 8.5 from completely dry because of the oil cooler?

I always have to put more than 8 in. Getting ready to do it very soon. Bought the oil on sale like I do every Aug and the next time I drove it the change oil soon message came on. Must be an annual thing because I don't put that many miles on it a year.

Is your鈥檚 a Track-Pack, or Brembo Package (according to signature)?

My 鈥14 Track-Pack shows a little low unless I use 8.5 quarts.

I believe it to be a track pack car. It has the Boss 302 oil cooler and track pack gauges. I assume also the Torsen rear end but not sure how to tell.
