10 quarts of oil at a minimum of $10/quart -> $100. Figure with dealer markup, it's more like $120. Canister filter on an H chassis number? I would have expected spin-on, and the dealer is probably going to nick you $10 (canister elements can be had for < $5 from Rock Auto). Add in taxes and labor, and there you are.

So what’s the deal between the spin on and cartridge? I thought they updated and say to use cartridge now? I don’t know what’s on mine...

Due to the "possibility' of spin on vibrating lose if not torqued properly, they swapped to the canister in early '17.

At least part of the 2017 production year was spin-on, no? At what point did they change over?
good question I did not know they were using canister oil filters... My GT350 build date is 9/6/17 (H6088)

Any Spin on Filter Manufacture with a safety wire?

My Dad had a plane and it was required to use safety wire to tie the filter and other items
from loosening in flight

Mine is an 18 so I’m assuming its cartridge. I plan on stopping at dealer for oil and filter to have on hand. I want to change the first oil around 1200 miles or so.

Aahhh yes, but I think it was pretty early in ‘17. In fact, I personally don’t know anyone with a ‘17 and a spin-on filter.
BobSoFine has spin-on filter ( H1958 )

H583 2017 here and I have a spin on filter. No big deal. Follow instructions and oil gasket and torque to specs written on top of filter and it ain't coming loose. Only difference then putting spin on filters for all cars for years is you don't just hand tighten and give it another quarter turn more. You have to torque it which is some tighter than how its always been putting filters on.

You can probably get a better deal online for your oil and filter. I bought mine (just changed it at 1150 miiles) from Amazon and paid $126 for the oil and $7+ for the filter. Don't know the dealer price but it's probably more. This was for Ford's full synthetic 5W-50.

P.S. That price was for a case of oil (12 quarts).
