    I just picked up a new to me Saleen S302 no supercharged yet , over I’m really happy with the car but I’ve been having a hard time deciding which oil to use in the car I do plan on driving it hard and enjoying it, should I stick to the one recommend 5w-20 or should I use the 5w-50 like the track pack cars? FWIW the car is stock for now but it put down 400rwhp and 395 TQ 677ae016555730824a80e9f5c3542b4c.jpg

    Good looking Saleen you got there. FWIW, I've been using Amsoil 5w-30 in my 2014 GT with 1 bottle of Hyperlube ever oil change. Motorcraft filter too. Had ticking after oil changes with other oils and filters using 5w-20. Someone on another thread suggested using this combo and it seems to work. Even more so with a TVS blower....

    I've had two Saleens in the past. I have an affinity for them. Yours is beautiful.

    Very nice looking Saleen. I like the paint color and black badging. Must be a lot of fun to drive. Especially on the weekend. :)
