I wracked it with a rubber mallet.... not so easy when inside the car.... after that there are only 3 bolts that hold the mount to the block and that gasket fails and leaks so replace it while everything is out....

Youre better off junking it and replacing to the non cooler type. Be sure to get one from a mustang if you decide to switch it.

I have a 5.0 but i ditched my oil cooler and just bypassed it with coolant hoses, don't regret it at all.

You're going to hate life when you try to get one of the bolts out of that oil cooler. That one bolt took me a few hours to get out, and that was with a tubular k member.

Are you selling yours? I might want it! I was given a 03 mach 1 oil filter adapter just have to wait till it gets here i was told it will fit with no issues but looks like it may hit the headers.

I just drained the coolant and removed the oil filter shaft and it was alot easier than i expected. Had too since i was doing the upper and lower intake gaskets.
