+9 (whoops, never posted what I used)
5w-30 for my winter use of oil
10w-30 in summer.

Wix/AC filter, the PF-52 or equivalent. It'* about 1" longer then the stock PF-47, and with 5kish oil changes, it'* nice to have more filtering surface area.

I use Mobil because it'* everywhere, and tried and true.

How does the PF-52 fit on the S2 L67? I have been meaning to grab one and give it a try, but I really don't want to have to take it back for the shorter PF-47...

It fits just fine...no problem fitting it on the SSEi'* at all. On the w-bodies however, it is trickier because the passenger side control arm is right below it, but with a little patience it works fine.

Nice, that'* what I wanted to hear. I'm about 1k miles out from my next change and I'll be sure to pick up the PF-52 along with 5qts of Mobil 1 10w30. Is 5qts enough to fill the PF-52? I have always put in 5qts in my SSEi with the PF-47 and it has always been right on the full-full mark.

Yes, the PF-52 fits fine. It does hang down about 1/4" lower than the frame so there is a minor risk of hitting it if you drive on rough roads or speed bumps but as long as you have never hit the frame you should be fine.

I just run 10w-30 dino juice, I just pick a 'name' brand (no tech2000 for my bonnie )

I'd also like to note, I run this year round and have never had a problem starting in -20-40 weather

A while ago I read that synthetic oil is cheaper to manufacture than petroleum based oil. So how come its more expensive to buy? I dunno, but I use it anyhow. Mobile 1 5w30.
