    Ford has really downsized their filter choices for newer GAS vehicles (2010-present). FL 910 and FL500 are about the only 2 we use.

    Your Mustang AND v6 Mustang both use FL500s.

        This is from some older info but the filter info still applies.

        I use the 820S on my 2010 Shelby and I use the FL500S on my Daughters 2013 Mustang V6.

        I hope this helps,
