    I knew about the 5k interval but was unsure about conventional vs synthetic. The mechanic at work told me that I should've had them fill it with synthetic when I took it in. Would it be bad to run synthetic oil? Just curious.

    No harm in running it, but it would be a waste of money.

    OK. I wouldn't be paying for it, but I'd run it if there was a benefit. But there isn't so I'll stick to conventional. What brand of oil do y'alls use?

    There is a few good threads on here about oil.I put in castrol full syn last sat before that i just took it to a lube shop. So far it seems she likes it. Lol i only went synt because i dont like changing oil so the less i have to the better and doing myself it cost the same as reg oil at a shop.

    Either my mechanic at work does my oil changes or if I'm on the road and can't get to him I take it into a lube shop and have it done there. I had conventional oil put in last time. My mechanic said to switch over to Mobil 1 synthetic starting with my next oil change. I have at least one oil change done a month since I drive 4-6k miles a month.

    I know how that is I use to work in the bay area and drive there every day.There is an lubricant engineer on one of the forms in here that said that's what he uses.Must be good stuff.

    No i think its not a bad thing it could be made by a top brand just a different label.there is only a few oil producers out there.have you looked at the label to see were its manufactured? Im kinda curious now. Just like toyota's oil is Pennzoil. I think. Don't quote me.

    I got my relays in the mail today. They're 5 pin relays though; will they work for my LED light bar install?
