If you are going with just a good oil go to WalMart and get the Ford MotorCraft 15w40 5qts to a jug 3 jugs will do they also have the Ford filters but they like Syn oil, do a flush with VC-9 and distilled water then do distilled water 3 times then add a ELC antifreeze and a coolent filter more mods to come welcome to the world of the 6.0
