Either would be okay but if you go with conventional oil do the 3000mi oil changes.

Motorcraft does have a fully synthetic oil. Just got a flyer with a coupon from local Ford dealer for a oil change with synthetic oil for the LTC including a filter for $29.50. That's a lot less than what I pay for Mobil 1 oil alone.

I have not noticed a difference between 5W-20 and 5w-30 whatsoever. I believe there is a difference, but so minute you won't be able to notice it. I get whichever is available. I get the 5.25qt jug of Motorcraft 5W-20 at Walmageddon for about $12. Atleast I think it's 5W-20.

My car is on a full syn diet and has been since new, even while it was in police service. The 7500 mile or more change interval is very nice.

Ford tests with Mobil 1 products. That said any oil meeting the minimum specifications for your model year is okay.

The Kenndal 5w30gt1, the Chevron Supreme Motor 5w30, the Valvoline Synpower 5w30MST, or the Petro-Canada 5w30 would be my choices. Any of these oils would be good. The Valvoline synpower oil is a synthetic oil and after engine breakin of 3000km after the rebuild I would personally use this oil if Mobil 1 5w30 or 5w20 or 0w20 were not available. The other 3 choices make better breakin oil. Reason is that synthetic oils are too good at eliminating scuffing which is needed to seat the piston rings to the cylinder walls. Hope this helps.

It costs me a left nut to keep my 05 CV and two other vehicles on a synthetic diet every 5k.
NASCAR uses it and I have personally seen it go into two Roush Racing vehicles. The mechanic told me no other oil can protect as well as synthetic.

I use 5w-30 Quaker State High Mileage with a Motorcraft oil filter. Less than $20 for an oil change and never had any problems.
