if its a full reco with new pistons buy urself this product

http://www.penriteoil.com.au/products/s ... ing-in_oil

I'll have to check with my mate in regards to how long u should have the running in oil in before dropping it.

U should also invest in a filter magnet as its a fresh engine

i would go with the transmax z, you can use any dexron fluid but with a normal dexron fluid ford recommend a additive(cant think of its name).. thats why i go with the synthetic stuff, no additives needed..
i was running penrite synthetic gear oil in my old ea box, but it had over 400'000km..
the ef box im using now had been recently rebuilt so im running the transmax z...

i'm actually considering use a fuchs 0W20 next service. be interesting to see what happens,


I finally managed to get hold of some GT1 0W20, It'll be going in the AU next week.
Costs twice the price of the current oil but it is a long drain oil so it will be staying in twice as long.

Will try and organize oil analysis every 2000km



Changed the plan.
I did one sample at 10 000km and changed the oil at the same time.
Got the results back the other day. will post them up.
But basically it showed that silicon levels were acceptable (silicon levels show how well you air filter is doing.)
Wear metals like iron, aluminium, lead, tin, chromium, are all good
water content was below 1PPM
Fuel dilution was below %2
There was one strange high reading, can't recall what it was though, The lab couldn't give a reason for it but suggested I keep a close track of cooling system water usage.
i'll check tomorrow and scan and post the report.
The oil was also still in grade with virtually no viscosity change.


For the next tests i'm going to fit a genuine paper air filter and take the K&N one out to see if i can lower the silicon level.
And I'm going to make an effort to sample every 2500km and run the oil until the lab says to change to it. I want to see if i can extend the life of the enough to out weigh the extra cost of it over what i used to spend. (used to use Fuchs GTO 10W30 changed every 5000km)

As it was I proved that
1: Quality thin oil WILL protect your engine (thick oil lubes better....MYTH BUSTED)
2: That even at 10 000km Fuchs GT1 0W20 oil still had plenty of service life left.
3: At a point in my engines life (test started at 135 000km) where the advice from most people on this website is to use thicker oil, that using thinner oil then recommended resulted in ZERO oil consumption and no undue or excessive wear to my engine.


If anyone wants to argue and has used oil analysis results to back them, I'm more then happy to listen.
