Is an expert in automotive lubrication someone who would forget to prime the oil system in a 575 Ferrari? Remember 99 percent of wear occurs on start up.

the back and forth stops now. LSCowboy please stop posting hearsay and irrelevant associations, everyone else, the man has a right to claim whatever he likes without being taunted. You're all free to request verification from eachother but not to mock eachother like 5 year olds.

No more bickering. Mature discussion only please.

If it were me I would choose a synthetic 0w30 or 5w30 and a fram ultra filter
Run first for 5000 miles or 1 year, if it doesn't get horribly dirty right away go for 7500 or 1 year, up to 10000 miles or 1 year if you do a lot of highway driving

If you have had the car for awhile and know the oil history, I would go straight for 7500
I would only do a few quick changes if you know the car has been neglected
Post some pics of the oil fill hole, and underneath the fill cap
