    Nope, right on top of the drip pan underneath the oil filter.
    I also turn the wheel all the way to the left and slide the pan in and out from the front of the tire.

    Is this the old "DirtyDogoftheDesert" of Mustang past?

    Do you have a link to the pan that fits? That's a great idea. I've been using oven bags but they don't work as well as they have on past vehicles.

    You can buy it at the supermarket it's something like 5" x 3" with high sides, I usually buy a 4 pack.
    I should also point out you need to bend this into shape so it' doesn't fall off and get under the oil filter.
    It's just cheap aluminum deposable pans.
    And of course don't drop the filter on it, I've done that and it sucks. LOL

    I have only done one oil change thus far and also used the performance filter. I am about to do my second change. Switched to the performance filter at the first change with no problems. We will see how this one goes. Going to add the fumoto valve this time around as well as stay with the performance filter. I loosen the filter just a little then I slide a gallon ziplock bag over it before removing it all of the way. Last time didn't leak any oil and this time yet to be determined. 2018 screw btw. Good luck!
