Can't go wrong with Mobil 1 5W30 and OEM filters. Castrol GTX dino oil and Purolator Pure One filters are also good.


Front strut bar is probably a waste of money as the car's frame is already very stiff.

i always use 5w30 mobil 1 full synth. but for 3,000 miles im going to give redline a shot since their tranny oil helped alot. But I don't think i will try reline again because of the price.
