I use either motorcraft 5W20 to keep the dealer happy or Mobil 1 5W30.

Might change to royal purple or Amsoil or Redline or or or.....................................

yea, my dealer use to keep putting in 5W-20 into my SVTF, but then i changed to mobil 1 5W-30 syn. and then i asked the dealer that my SVTF supplement book says to use 5W-30 but then he argues that it's ok to use a thinner oil cause it's less stress in the engine, but that's bull crap, cause obviouly SVT put in the manual to use 5W-30 for a reason, so i just told him ok fine i'm not gonna change my oil here anymore and i just walked out! major piss off

You are the customer, you decide what oil goes in.

IMO the best oil is Amsoil. Mobil 1 or any other just doesn't compare. Check here www.krsynlube.com.
