2014 F-150 with Ecoboost engoine, 12k miles on it. If they are price-equivalent, what would you put in it? MC Syn blend or PZ full syn 5/30? Both would use a FL-500S MC filter.

I understand it came from the factory with the MC blend and filter and I've done 3 OC with that setup 'just because' and was according to the OLM. I have lots of short trips and a few scattered 50-75 mile trips now and then.

If they are price-equivalent what would you go for? It's covered under a Ford 100k, 8 year extended warranty.

I would pick any Full synthetic over any blend 7 days a week. You can usually find Full synthetic on sale and with a rebate cheaper than just going to an Auto parts store and buying what's on the shelf.

I wouldn't use a paper oil filter in it. I'd get a Wix 57502XP or a Royal Purple 20-500.

PP 5W30 Full Synthetic. It's A5/B5 last time I looked. Plus all the regular specs SN, GF-5, Dexos, Ford 929 & 946, etc

If you look at the Ecoboosts in the UOA section the best results have been with Castrol Magnetech.

At 12k miles the engine is still breaking in. I'd go a run or two more on the MC synblend to make sure the rings get seated properly. Then you can switch to full synthetic.

Castrol Magnatec or anything with the Dexos1 Gen2 cert.

My 2016 has the same drivetrain. It seems that blends have better LSPI characteristics in direct injection turbo engines. They might not be as good at other factors, like timing chain wear though. I have run castrol 0w40 since 1000miles and switched over to PUP 5w30 this fall for the winter because it was on sale, at 6000 miles. I will probably stick to the 0w40 year round from now on, due to fuel dilution and shearing factors in this engine. It strikes me that the timing chain is very long and probably needs all the help it can get.

And it's only a dollar more than the MC blend at Wal-Mart

If running Pennzoil I'd look for the dexos gen2 cert, which i think they now have. Should work well. I'm going with Mobil 1 AP in my 2.7 for the add pack and higher viscosity while under warranty.

Hadn't thought that deeply on it; figured it was seated already but not? wow.
