I'm looking to change the oil soon and was doing some research.
People are recommending a heavier oil than the 5w20 for supercharged engines.
I live in a country with 120+ weather all summer, and it gets pretty humid too. Brutal conditions for a supercharged vehicle.
What intervals do you guys recommend for changing the oil and the oil filter in those conditions ?
I read on the manual 5000 miles, and on the internet at least 4000. The reasons I read were that there's a special oil that helps things to settle in better and should remain in the engine for the first 5k miles, not sure if true or if I understood correctly.
I bought the Motorcraft FL500S oil filter online already since it's not available here. Just researching the oil so I could look around and see if it's available here. I know for a fact that Mobil 1 is available, and is the most expensive in fact, just need to know which oil weight I should go with.
Appreciate the help, you guys are great.
