non di turbo- have a can of bgmoa on hand as a tbn booster if you get to 10k miles and want to push that off a bit. I have used it as an extender when I was a work aholic and didn't have time for oil changes and/or other things.

M1 AP, appears good for 25k with a good filter.

Twice a year oil changes with M1 EP or AP, regardless of miles. With M1’s twice a year rebates you’re near clearance territory.

Just get M1 EP and an M1 EP filter and change it every 15K miles. After the rebates our local Meijer sells both (filter+ 5Qjug) for under $20.

You didn't say if it consumes any oil. If it does stay with an inexpensive bargain HM 5w30 synthetic. If it doesn't use oil then go with the Amsoil or other quality long drain oil. Either way you can keep it to twice yearly with say a Frame Ultra filter.

Forgot to mention. Im the original owner. First 40k miles used conventional 5w20. Then 40-140k used religiously M1 anything from 0w20 to 0w40. From 140k to now (188k) used any clearance oils under $3 a quart. Car does not use oil and does not leak.

Scored 5 quarts of PPHM 5w30 at $3.95 a quart at walmart last night. Plus the $10 rebate they have now going on. So its $1.95 a quart. This is what will be going in next and ran 10-12k miles.
