definately a full synthetic in probably 20w50 or maybe 10w40 since alky runs cooler. i run royal purple because of my sponsor $5 to $6 quart. I hear walmarts full synthetic Tech Oil is made by catrol and it is great oil for the price around $2

My engine builder recommends that I run Pennzoil 20-50 so that's what I run. Says thats all he runs in his sprint.

Have always used Royal Purple 41 & 51 and really like it. Tried Amsoil 20W50 for the first time last year and my engine builder and I were both very pleased with how everything looked. I would recommend either one of these two.

20W50 should be just great royal purple is a great oil but it is a little high.Valvoline and Penzoil should do you just fine.
