    And remember to NEVER use a Fram oil filter.....A while back, someone posted a URL for a site that showed all the pros and cons of all the filters out there, and Fram was the worst of the bunch- some of the internals are made of cardboard!!!!!!!

    I personally run Castrol or Pennzoil. Not sure why, but I seem to get better oil pressure with the Pennzoil. I also use Purolator Pure One filters.

    Was spesificly told to never use anything else that Quacker-state on my 6,2. Something to do with the tephlon I think. I do trust the people at the garage I use. They have alot of experience with 6,2's And they sell Q.S. offcource...Hmm

    I use the 4X4 extreme synthetic blend....I think its Quaker State. I tried the fram dual guard oil filter and it malfunctioned on me the gasket leaked all of the oil out. I will only use Delco Or WIX filters. The synthetic blend is cheaper than full synthetic and I feel like im doing something nice for that little mouse (300 hp) under the hood!!

    I will always put Pennzoil 10w-40 with a BOSCH or Mobil 1 Filter except I think i'm going to AC Delco filters because the Mobil 1 is really expensive so it better be good.
