    Platinum, Iridium, Ruthenium, oh my!

    OEM! Whatever the engineers designed for your application. Although; there maybe better alternatives. I defer to the Master Mechanics.......I'm smart enough to know that I'm not smart enough to know. If that makes sense. When in doubt. I always defer to OEM.

    I agree about Valvoline and Redline ^^. You can always get a stout motor oil like Mobil 1 0W40 and add a can of BG MOA. Just know that oil has a carefully balance of detergents, dispersants etc, but it's your decision.

    Yes, they are built to OEM specs. Now, I have sent B/A e-mails requesting country of origin (parts) and they refused. Some auto parts are good. No complaints with their oil filters though. Good luck!
