    Chalk one up for another Fan of Amsoil 0W-30, I also use their SD-64 filters since they go 6,000 miles. I was using K&N since they make it easy to get the filter on an off with a socket wrench, but they only last 3,000 miles.

    Mobil 1 5w30 here. Have been using Lucas synthetic oil stabilizer as well but after looking around on Bob's site looks like I'll be trashing what I have left of it. I feel dumb for paying $15 a quart for it at Autozone. Been using Mobil filters as well just outta lack of knowing which brand to choose. May switch to Purolator now, seems awful popular here.

    Its kinda hard to explain. Check it out for yourself. www.Bobistheoilguy.com It basically lets the oil turn into a big foamy mess when it is agitated.

    i use sythetic oil in my mustang and dirt bike. basically anything high performance. my daily driver jeep gets dino oil quality dino oil and i havent ever had so much of a hiccup out of the 4.0. i think oil in general as long as you use a quality brand is not as important as frequent changing and driving the car fairly hard to make the engine circulate the oil. i havent ever ran into a case of an engine failing do to poor engine oil. oil filters on the other hand lol fram is worse then they say it is. cut one open with a wizz wheel and then tell me you want your engine to have such an inferior product filter your engines life blood. oh yeah mobil1 10w30 in the stang. i get it cheap at wal mart.

    I've used Mobil 1 Synthetic since I bought my 1990 Grand Am Quad 4 car new (i miss that car). I had that car for 10 years, 142k miles and the guy who worked on it for me said the engine was in very good shape, thought it was less than 100k so i think the oil (and regular oil changes) deserves some of the credit.

    Use Mobil 1 10-30 in both my 2002 T/A and my wife's 2002 Grand Am. (it doesn't get very cold here)

    05 Wrangler
    00 Z28 sold :-(

    since everyone's talking about oil...i changed mine a few weeks ago for the first time (just got my Z28 ) and i had to use 6 qts and it is still a little less than a 1/4 qt low. I've pretty much owned nothing but 350's my whole life and they took around 5 and 3/4 qts. Was there a option for a deep sump on the Z's? Anyone else have to put in 6 qts?

    If your Z28 is an LS1 car then it has composite lifter holders for quick cam swaps and im just guessing but they probobly hold 1/2 a qt total. I wondered the same thing when i first got my 99 TA.
