The "best" is open to discussion. What's better red or blue? Green or brown? Alot of information on here, your best bet is to read from peoples expriences and reviews and form your own opinion. Well aboard.

Best in terms of value for money or best in terms of overall performance? Value (Conventional): Mobil Clean 5000 10W-30, AC Delco PF52 oil filter or ProLine oil filter, Purolator air filter. Performance (Synthetic): Amsoil SSO 0W-30, Amsoil EaO oil filter or Mobil 1 oil filter, Napa Gold/Wix air filter or Amsoil EaA air filter. Those are just my opinions, of course. \:\! Good luck.

ON, Canada eh?
The best combo I would think is an Amsoil EAA Air Filter and an EAO filter. Extended change intervals, and superior filtration! \:\!

My name is Gary Allan ..and I approved this message. Mr. Secrest ..all humor aside, I'd ask you what your primary service involved and your annual mileage. That will probably dictate what would provide the best value to your in terms of oil/filter selection. As far as air filters, the EAA line is outstanding in performance and durability/longevity, but will require longer time line to prove economical.
