Ain't a dang thing wrong with Fram'* for use in regular motors. Now racing motors, well yea, I would go with something else.

I've used Mobil 1 Fully Synthetic 10w-30 for years, I considered Royal Purple recently, but decided to stick to what I have always used, I normally use Mobil 1 oil filters as well, but went with a Bosh Premium the last oil change, it was on sale and money was tight...

I've run Castrol GTX ever since the car rolled of the assembly line. With 205,000 miles I have not had any issues. Perhaps I'm old school, but I prefer mineral based oil with frequent oil changes over synthetic oil with extended changes.
