What Oil Do i Use??

Hey guys! Tomorrow I'll be doing my first oil change on my Cobra since I've had it. Now, my question is, what weight do I use? And what brand would you suggest? I was planning on going all synthetic, and I've been considering Royal Purple over Mobil 1, but what do you all think?

Thanks for the help in advance!

Re: What Oil Do i Use??

both the v6 & GT take 5w20 so i'd assume the same, but if you don't know for sure either check your oil cap, owners manuel, or ask the person at the Advance counter (they can pull up fluid info)...

and to me RP is just over priced for a DD...can't go wrong with Mobil 1 though

no problem...and have fun. i'd suggest grabbing a filter wrench while you're buying supplies because lets be honest you don't know how tight the old filter was put on. plus it makes life easier

Can you actually tell a difference with RP? That's what I'm planning on using, but jw.

Any synthetic, me too. I've used GTX, Mobil 1, just stay away from used oil. My brother said valvoline is pretty good, oh and I put in a 5qrt jug with a bottle of Lucas oil stabilizer and am always at the full line, no more no less
