Keep using whatever you were using. Most likely regular dino oil should be good. Or you can use high mileage synthetic blends like valvoline or castrol gtx HM. Stay away from full synthetic

Nice!

As for more power just sell it get LS430 or 98-00 LS400, not very cost effective to make 1st gen LS400's faster

I don't own LS430 but my 23 yr old LS loves it when I open her up once in awhile. Currently at 255k miles but so smooth. I'm obsessed with its maintenance so maybe that helps

older LS' s are great cars if you can do most repairs yourself. Since this car is for your daughter I'm not so sure. Repair costs can add up fast if you can't repair yourself. Something to consider

If you can do it yourself just blend using oem paint, flex agent, and adhesion promoter. BTW that looks like it's been painted before. Just matter of time before whole bumper will start peeling
