    you can ask 5 different members this question and you will get 5 different answers. I run a Napa Gold oil filter and Red Line Synthetic 10w30. (The street oil not the race oil, you don't want to run the race oil in a street car)

    The best oil I've ever found is Mobil 1 after a thorough break-in. The best formula is Mobil 1 with a pint of Commercial Grade Anti Friction by Pro Tec. Nothing else comes close. You should be able to find them at (901) 377-6888. Let me know if you have a problem.
