Call me nuts but can't go wrong with PYB 5w20 and a MC(Mororcraft filter). Or you could use MC synblend 5w20 and FRAM TOugh guard filter. I would go 6k depending on driving habit/style

I'd go with another fram ultra and valvoline synpower or mobil 1.id check owners manual for oci but should be good for 8,000 unless you do tons of city driving and short drives. Then reduce it some. I'd stay away from the mc filter they aren't exempt to the puro tears. Wix would also be a great filter
