Best synthetic oil for Mustang 2003 V6 3.8L

What's up Stang lovers! Other than Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil, any recommendations for a good motor oil would be appreciated. Thanks.

Well, when was the last time you ever heard of an oil related engine failure?
I think that any oil today is fine as long as you are using the correct weight.
That said...........I use nothing but Pennzoil Platinum in my 2015 GT, and the engine runs noticeably more quietly.

Motorcraft or SuperTech at wal mart. Don't overthink this, especially for a 3.8L that honestly will do fine on any oil.

Waste of money for Amsoil & RP maybe??

Honestly....ANY good quality oil is fine provided you change it and the filter appropriately!!

Like Guard said, any name brand oil is good now days. I buy Mobil 1 (6 quarts) and a Motorcraft filter from Walmart for like $30. I've used Royal Purple in my last car but at over $65 per oil change, I switch to something else. Its good oil but too much $$ for me
