I generally use Mobil 1 on a "built" motor because it is really good and still cheap at $27 per 5 quart jug at Wal Mart. Failing that Wal Mart's Super Tech is a very good alternative and about $9 cheaper per 5 quart at $18 and Motorcraft Syn Blend is very good too at the same price as the Super Tech. Always use a WIX filter (NAPA Gold) while avoiding the Fram orange death cans.
So far Scotty is on point.
