Using Castrol GTX2 20W/50 with a Motorcraft Oil filter now.

I have tried GTX3 15W/40 oil but i find i get alot more noise coming from the pacemakers and the exhaust note sounds worse.

MOTUL 5w40 Full Synthetic + Purolator PureOne Filter.

I used Penrite HPR15 on my last engine every 5000km, and the bastard started using oil. When I pulled it apart the bores were glazed.
Not sure if that's Penrite's fault, or a crappy engine, but IMO, I think 15w60 is a bit thick.
I probably made things worse when I moved to HPR30 to compensate for the oil usage.

I use Shell Helix Plus (15W-50) I wouldn't recommend changing to a different brand, stick to the one your currently using.
