Their website used to say it is OK, but have not been to their website for a while. Seal conditioners are different than seal swellers.

Anyone think there would be a problem using Maxlife 5w20 for the entire life of an engine, beginning when it's new?

You could use it, but why not just save a couple of bucks and use Motorcraft 5W-20 synblend or Pennzoil YB? I like MaxLife, but I wouldn't bother in using is it a newer engine.
