    hey guys im going to do my first oil change i just got to 4,000 miles and since i drove it like hell when i went up to oakland from l.a. i want to get the oil out. i was thinking of going with royal purple 5x30 and royal purple filter. what do you guys think and what do you use? do i need to have break in oil or is 5w30 good? i was also thinking of using one of those oil stabilizers from lucas.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    Many threads on this already, search engine is good to use and there is a lot of good info on this site.

    Most guys seem to go with Mobil 1 oil, or any major name brand. And for the filter, Toyota oil filter is fine or even a Mobil 1 filter, or purolator filter is fine too. Just make sure to never use Fram filters.
    No need for a break in oil, and no need for any of those "oil stabilizers". Everything you need is in the synthetic oil.

    Have fun.
