Got A New Chevrolet Crate Motor? Use Full Synthetic Oil | GM Authority
So after reading this short article, do the mechanically inclined/much smarter than me Forum Members think we should use Mobil 1 full synthetic oil exclusively? I was kind of surprised that there was no mention of the AC Delco full synthetic oil in the article. Not trying to start a raging debate (well maybe a little), just trying to learn, and see if it's in my engine's best interest to switch to the Mobil 1 oil. Thanks.

P.s. yes I know what a crate engine is.
Smirnoff old pal!!!
Stick with the good stuff,,,, FULL SYNTHETIC, ONLY!! It is always gonna be a sometimes rancorous debate over this!! You cannot go wrong with Mobil One 5/30!!! Its NOT expensive,,,, Caveat here is that I do my own work and buy in bulk on sale at WalMart when I run low!! The difference in price is NOT that vast anymore,,, but it was not always the case!!! Also,,, I stick with using WIX XP oil filters. If you change these things on a regular basis, even with cheap crap parts and oil,,, (again an interval will be another sometimes rancorous debate),,, you will no doubt extend the life of the engine!!! My dearly departed BMW ran on original internals for 314,000!!!! I stick to a 5,000 mile regimen on the SS,,,,, OIL IS CHEAP,,,, PARTS AND SERVICE ARE A FORTUNE!!!
I am wrenchin on cars for the last half century!!!! I,,, like some other respected members here,,,, have seen pretty much just about everything that can happen from careless ownership and maintenance!!! It does not take an Einstein,,, or brain surgery,,, to get the simple things right,,, just a bit of due diligence!!!
Just my $0.02 !!!
And Yeah!!! OY VEY,,, Another Oil Thread!!!
