Synthetic oil? Is it worth the money?
Hi guys, I would like everybody's opinion on what oil is best to run in these new 6.4's. My plan was to change my oil at 2500 miles at ford with ford motorsport cj-4. My next oil change I was planning at 5,000 miles again with ford cj-4. I was going to do it this way to have two changes to drain any metal from initial break in. At the 10,000 mile mark I was planning on using amsoil synthetic, but It will cost close to $200.00 per change for this oil every 5,000 miles there after which will be about 600 per year for me. If I stick with conventional ford motorsport oil, I'm only looking at $300 per year. I want great protection and long life out of my truck. Either way I am very dedicated to consistant oil changes in my vehicles when they are due. So What are you guys doing in regards to your oil changes and types of oil???
