I'd run a Euro-spec oil, Fram Ultra/Donaldson Blue filters(unless OEM uses Mann or Mahle fleece filters - JDM "upgrade" if FU or Donaldson doesn't fit) and 10/15K OCIs.

I think an ACEA A3/B3-rated oil with higher HTHS and lower NOACK will help with turbos and some engines are just plain hard on oil - Toyotas for example. dexos2 if it had to go into a GM product.

Pretty much the same oils I run now.. whatever semi-syn or full-syn is either on sale, on clearance, or running at a good price.. I'll lock myself into a Fram Ultra as far as filters go.. No sense in saving a couple bucks when the FU is the best at any price.

If money was no concern, I'd be doing a lot of traveling. Amsoil or M1 AP for 20,000 OCIs with a Fram Ultra.

Royal Purple XPR 5w20/30, RP or Amsoil filter. 10,000 mile OCI. RP XPR oils have quadruple the amount of synerlec and their most stout oil!

With money no issue for me, whatever the McLaren stealership slaps in there...
If someone offered to buy me whatever oil and filter I wanted for my current cars, I think I'd do pretty much what I do now, but always put M1 EP in and run a fram ultra for a two OCI total of 25k.

XPR is good stuff-but I wouldn't run it in anything with a catalytic converter, it's pretty high in sulfur (main ingredient in Synerlec).

If money was of no concern, I'd probably be driving something a lot different than what I currently am. Not knowing that vehicle's oil/filter requirements, I can't really answer what oil/filter/OCI I'd be running. I guess I'd be following the owner's manual and let someone else deal with maintenance, and I'd just focus on driving the snot out of it.

No I haven't done a UOA in a while. Just don't find it beneficial.

Only if the car is burning oil then it would be a concern to me.
