SVT oil question

hey guys, i just recently picked up 2 quarts of Ford Motorcraft oil and i didnt realize that our svt's take 5w-30 so i got 10w-30. I don't know much about oil so i was wondering if this would be bad to put in my focus. Should i take it back and get the 5w-30 or use it??

It wouldn't hurt to use 10w30, you just don't want to mix weights under most circumstances.

You can use whatever weight you want, but just use the same stuff, don't mix them. I used 15w50 for the first 10k miles of my SVT.

I would think 10W30 would be fine, but you have to buy more oil anyway (2 quarts isn't enough), so why not just get the right stuff?
