What is everyone running in 100-110+ heat? I live in Phoenix, it's time for an oil change and it will be getting hot very soon.

does anyone using oils that are not recommended worry about warranty issues??? Doesn't the owner's manual state 5W30 or 10W30???

The guy's that did my engine work (402 stroker, forged internals) told me to run 20w50, and my warranty is now big-time over with!

I certainly understand that on built motors...just wonder why so many with "stock" motors run other than recommended...
thanks,

I just run what they told me and keep oil in her and fresh and you should never have a problem, though I would like to put a oiltemp gage on her just to see how hot it gets.

My warranty bit the dust the day I drove it off the lot. :cheers
I agree....on a stock engine...use what is recommended.
And yes, if your dealer is a putz, they could void a warranty.
