If ur switching to synthetic, make sure you do a good flush with the new oil and change it a few times sooner than usual. The different oils change the way ur engine is lubricated slightly and tiny particles tucked in certain crevices are moved. In some engines it can actually be bad, I have no idea which ones those are lol fer certain reasons I'm not sure of. I just know for sure that flushing is very important when switching. Synthectic is not as prone to breakdown over time and due to heat. Also it will not thin out as much when hot (which is why a previous poster said he didn't smell burning oil at redline). I use mobile 1 myself.
