I doubt any oil that meets Ford's specification will cause those engines to fail. Yet, you must be putting faith into Mobil 1 over the cheaper Motorcraft oil for some reason. Is it for better protection, perhaps? If not for specs like better NOACK, what is it specifically that you feel is better about the Mobil 1 product? Could it be that an oil that has better specs than Mobil 1 actually protect your engine better than Mobil 1?

If we didn't have specs like NOACK, how would we know what oils out-perform others?
