Hey Waylap1

You are on the right track running two quarts low, But if you really want to save weight you need to run "NO"oil and stick some of that Snake oil they sell that clings to the inside of your engine. Then you can actually do away with the oil pump.
Some of that stuff advertises the engine will run cooler so you can get rid of the radiator and do away with the water pump.
Do all of this and watch your ET fall.
Ronnie

Purple and Green was disturbing for sure. Now there is a condiment war going on between French's/Heinz... Heinz comes out with "new mustard" and French's comes out with "Ketchup with no high fructose corn syrup unlike some brands" lolz.


As for the oil. Been actually doing a little research more than usual because of the Novi blower on the car I just bought. With the price of M1 right now on Amazon its really really hard not to go that route. $26 for 5 gallon jug shipped to my door for that stuff. Will just order 2 jugs when I get the new motor dropped in. Its the extended performance stuff too so that's the legit 100% syn.


I've read all the oil stuff on Bobistheoilguy on and off for years and the "big 3" of the best oils to run are consistently Amsoil/RP/M1.

That's what its always been at Wal Mart but that means you have to go to Wal Mart... They also have $17.99 5 quart jugs of Motorcraft and Super Tech but those are Class III blends vs a Class IV full syn.

Lol I thought I said 5 quart jug... oh well lmao. I can also get the 5w-40 Rotella I run in my truck and wife's 4 banger for cheaper on Amazon too. Expy was using oil and the CRV had a leaky cam seal before I went to the 40 weight. Now the truck only uses 3/4 quart every 5k miles and the leak on the cam seal stopped on the CRV woot.

I use royal purple 5w-20 with the RP filter. I also change my oil every 3000 miles. Overkill? Maybe but I'm the one who pays for the stuff so i don't care haha.

This exactly. I do mine 3-4k miles also. Because I do drive it hard sometimes so 4k is the sweet spot for me.

I just use what the dealership offers and go two times a year. Roughly 3500 miles per change. I may go full synthetic next time. Only at 6600 miles so far.

After a little more research with this Novi will definitely be doing the 5w-40 Rotella T6 in the Mustang as well. Centri blowers beat the **** out of engine oil and the Rotella is super heavy duty designed.

absolute best engine oil?

Mobile one synthetic...two friends who run it in their race cars religiously. Prior they used to use casterol and quakerstate, yearly they had to replace engines until they found out the mobile one synth didn't destroy the engines yearly anymore. They are using the same engines respectively in a dodge neon spec racer and a radical sr4.

I also used Quaker and had oil leaks on my 4.0l when I switched over to mobile one synth my oil leak problem stopped...my seals were rejuvenated some how and my engine went for 153,000miles before I killed it with boost. I've since replaced it with a 4.6l

Apparently the extended mileage stuff is a full syn. But the regular M1 is still a blend. And is still really really good oil. I actually get it for $24 for 5 quarts at the BX and no tax.

I agree. I ran it religiously in my x-runner for the 155k I had it. But for the coyote it's amsoil all the way.

Ha ! Ha ! Ha ! Ha ! Ha !

Mobil 1 don't make a full Synthetic Motor oil.
I can't help but laugh because they have been caught telling a bunch of lie's on the cases and bottles of oil they call "FULL SYNTHETIC"

I'm still getting a laugh out of even thinking of this. Ha! Ha!

Welllll, that's not entirely true my good sir. This is a fully synthetic Base IV oil by Mobil 1. 👍

Have a great day!

I agree that Amsoil Is great oil. I do wonder if your engine would have a shorter life using say Royal Purple, Redline or Mobil 1 Extended Performance instead of Amsoil!

I'm just not convinced that my engine health would be better using Amsoil over Mobil 1 EP although it may be! I pay 28 dollars for a 5 quart bottle at Wally World.



Have a great day!

That is why I'm laughing so hard and long.

There are two posts -one at 3.54pm and one at 3.56pm trying to tell us all that Mobile -1 does not have a fully synthetic motor oil,
Even after the post at 3.52pm by Enorym showing a picture of Mobil 1 full synthetic motor oil the post at 3.56 tried to make him look like a fool by saying:
Quote:
Your one of the people who can be persuaded to buy anything "bc it says it's something"
People make fortunes of your kind
I don't want to mention names and I'm trying to be kind. I just can't stop laughing about this.

Go back and read why I'm laughing, Mobile 1 is one of the first consumer full synthetic motor oils and that started the trend that other oil manufactures followed. It is still one of the best. They do make a semi-synthetic for people that don't need or can't afford the full synthetic.
*******************************BUT*************************************************
THEY STILL OFFER "FULL" SYNTHETIC>

When I pulled my 4.0 I pulled it all apart to inspect the bearings the engine was still clean after 153,000miles. Bearings were good, cams had no signs of wear. The only problem was I lost piston 1 and 5 because of a misfire I had a bad coil pack and it detonated at full boost 12psi while I was racing a motorcycle that I was 4 cars ahead of.

No one said Mobil 1 wasn't good decent oil, they just said it want full synthetic (which is true). The extended life mobile one is full synthetic from what I read. We are just trying to help you in case you thought you were getting "the best" or 100% full synthetic oil. Why does everyone have to take it to heart. Geez guys.

As long as you're using a good filter and changing oil regularly, you'll be okay.

I use whatever I have laying around

About to close thread. Plz back on topic and stop trying to show off your E-peen because NOBODY has a bigger E-peen than me!

In all seriousness, M1 is great oil but it is not a 100% full syn like Amsoil or Rotella. It is still damn good oil and easily the best bang for the buck ones you can buy. Iirc, the extended performance is a full syn but I dunno for sure. I use Rotella T6 in my cars anyway.

Just upgraded from Mobil 1 to Amsoil, and from a Pennzoil filter to a Wix. Very pleased with the results.

Just curious but what results did you get upgrading to Amsoil from Mobil 1? Maybe I'll switch for better results. Can you elaborate?

Seemed like the car ran better, or I'm just insane.
A friend also said he felt a difference when he upgraded to Royal purple.

IMO, that is placebo effect but hey, if it makes the car feel better lol. Also a WIX filter is one of, if not THE best.


Like I've said before on these forums. If you are running a basic production engine, even a Coyote you rev to 7K regularly, just Motorcraft blend will be fine as long as you have a good filter.


I still suggest going with at least a 5w-30 tho, 20 weight is just too thin. Performance motors obviously will need thicker weights.

Are a lot of people running 5W30 in the Coyote? I've always thought the 5w20 was pretty thin but didn't want to stray from what Ford said to put in.
