Let me know what you guys think I am very impressed and satisfied with the uoa results on this combo... OCI was 6300 miles

Looks like a lot less iron with the 5w30!

I wanted to prove you can safely go up in weights in the 5.4 owner world thereís disputes over this all the time... Iím not saying you change the cold viscosity number but the end weight going up one obviously does not hurt in reality it improved my motors wear metal numbers

8,000 miles on Sig Series is child's play....

When the 3valve 5.4 was released in Australia, it was spec'd for 5w30 and 10w40 oil. The was in the Falcon in 2001, 3 years before it hit North America in the F150, where it got spec'd with 5w20. My 2009 loved castrol 0w40 year round in calgary.

10w-30 M1 does well in mine

Welcome to BITOG and thanks for the post.
I also run the 5w-20 Amsoil Signature Series, and I have a 2011 version of your 5.4L 3v, so I probably know what I'm talking about. Since you asked for input here goes. Your uoa looks pretty good to me. Your oil and your filter are both rated for 25k miles. So your only using a fraction of their potential. If your uncomfortable going with extended (20k-25k) intervals, warm up with 15k miles and go from there. I routinely go 5k-10k miles after a filter change on my bypass setup before I do a uoa. I'm currently 8k miles of a 13k mile uoa since my last uoa @162k miles. Im comfortable doing this because Ive had 8 uoa's done so far on this bypass filter run of 71k miles.Good Luck!

What is there to prove? My 98 5.4 calls for 5-30 right on the cap, the Lightning 5.4s also call for 5-30 but spec a synthetic.

He was talking about some of the people out there that claim that ONLY 5W-20 can be used in the 3v 5.4 '04+ F-150 engines (seen this quite a few times on the F-150 forums), which is preposterous.

Looks great. I would guess that you could go at least 15k, if you want.
