    I always use Royal. I use thicker though because I have high mileage. Every one is different and yes This is kind of pricey but I love the way my truck runs.

    I always use mobile 1 on my DDs with Mobile 1 or K&N filters.

    On the HD I use regular vavoline 5w30 just because I don't drive enough to make syn worth it, I change it well before the mileage needs. Mobile 1 filters though. OEM Ford ones have the cheapest gaskets.

    That's just going to depend on what you prefer. Look into either K&N , VOLANT, Or maybe JLP Forced induction intake
