+1 I have used mobile one in the past and when I did my motor swap and saw how my motor looked from the oil I was really un-happy with mobile one. Since I have used Royal Purple and will post pictures up when I do my 3rd motor swap. :santa_cheesy:

I use 10w40 Valvoline MaxLife, mostly from my dad's recommendation with his '94 stang and other cars. He's a big valvoline oil guy I guess. He was a mechanic for 10 years at a Cadillac dealership in socal and big small block ford guy (289 and 302 in his '64 Comet Cyclone back in 70's)

I burn a little less oil with 40wt compared to 30wt. I change every 3000-3500 miles.

I believe I've read somewhere that Castrol is one of the best ones out there, so that's what I use.

I'm using Castrol Magnatec, and a firm believer in Mobil 1 too.

Does that Motorcraft Synthetic oil have a name btw [like Zetec etc] or is it that simple?
Just that i have a trade account at my local Ford dealers [amongst others].
