Which Oil

Just wondering what oil you guys would reccommend? I'm gonna be putting a bypass filter on as well with this oil change. I'm also up north in the cold.

I would go with Amsoil 5w40 but the next best would be Rotella T Synthetic SAE 5W-40 i am running a 15w40 now but the next change will be 5w40 Amsoil for cold start ups.

If you're in really cold weather like seriously below 0 a lot I would highly recommend you consider a good synthetic 5w30. Your injectors will thank you. For summer I would go back to the 5w40.
