Hi, everyone. Looking for some info here on the Kendall GT-1 Synthetic Blend vs Motorcraft Synthetic Blend 5W-20. The F-150 in my signature has been running Motorcraft Synthetic Blend 5W-20 since 2012. The issue I have ran into recently is my local Wally World doesn't keep their stock up well on Motorcraft oil. It could be any day that they have it or don't have it and I am not going to keep running back and forth when they finally stock up with it. My local O'Reilly store has it, but with the price they sell it at, I'll pay over $50 for it at that price, each oil change, which is absurd to me. I might as well take it to a pit, at that price. I have found Kendall GT-1 Synthetic Blend 5W-20 on Amazon in big 12 quart bulk boxes that, per oil change, only comes out to about $33, nearly saving me 20 bucks over O'Reilly's price. My question is: Is this oil pretty much the same as Motorcraft? This truck has always ran the quietest on Motorcraft. Almost no cam phaser noise at 162k miles. Just an extremely light phaser tick which it's had since I've owned it (bought it with 40k miles). Some people have told me Kendall is garbage and nowhere even close to as good as Motorcraft. Their basis is nothing more than "I heard from so-and-so". I'm the kind of person with the mindset of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it", and I want to stay as close to the Motorcraft formulation as possible, given my good experience with it and also how sensitive these Ford 5.4 3v engines are. i drop the oil early because the truck sees short tripping, so I just buy Synthetic Blend instead of Full Synthetic since I am not doing the extended drain intervals. I have seen that Kendall and Motorcraft are both made by Conoco Phillips. How close is the formulation of the GT-1 Synthetic Blend vs the Motorcraft Synthetic Blend? Does it perform equally as good as Motorcraft? Does anyone here use Kendall (specifically in the 5.4 3v) and how has your experience been with it? Thanks, in advance!
