    I've seen a few posts about member's 2.7 reaching, if not exceeding, 150,000 miles. So my question is, what kind of motor oil are you guys using out there, synthetic or conventional? also, what brand?

    I use mobile 1 conventional but what prompted you to go with synthetic?

    My samples come back good all the time, and I pulled the head off my first gen at 100k miles, and it looked almost new. I ran Mobil 1 all its life.
