Best Oil Debate.

Until yesterday I alaways had the belief that castrol syntec was the best oil to feed your engine, but arguing with my friend (who has a highly mod toyo MR2) said that a brand name Roshfrans was definitely better than castrol because his car runs way over smoother than with castrol. I know there are a lot of Oil brands out there but among the top ones, which do you think is the best for the focus, or which one would you recomend?

it's all personal preferance, as long as you change your oil every 3-5,000 miles you will have a long lasting engine.

i remember seeing a test on motortrend with the various oils. mobil1 came out on top, so thats what i use, its probably along the same lines as that royal purple stuff. but since the vettes, mercedes and i think the gt500 comes factory filled with it, along with F1 uses it, can't be all that bad. besides it comes in a really nice bottle lol.
