If you go to syn oil and have the slightest leak, it wont be a small leak anymore. Pros and cons on syn oil.  I found out the hard way. but ya as far as i know just change your oil. The filter should be change before your next oil change, syn last longer than conventional oils. i change the filter between oil changes. i run full syn in my yota  ;D

Is this for car or boat?  If it's a boat I would run the 15W-50, since marine engines are pretty much under a heavy load all the time.  I've been using synthetic in some of my cars (Toyota Tundra and Jeep Wrangler) and my jet boat for more than 10 years.  In a couple of old cars I have, 68 Malibu and 69 Mustang, the synthetic doesn't work as well but those engines are old school builds and I can hear the lifters clatter a little with the synthetic so they get dino oil (if I ever build them again the engines will be run on synthetic).  I've had the Chevy SBC in my boat apart a couple times and having run the synthetic it's very clean inside, no gunk anywhere. I use Mobil 1, because it's been around a long time and also it's readily available at a reasonable price, but I'm sure others will chime in with their favorite.

At least 20 hours on the new pistons/rings/bearings.  These were put in after about 30 hrs on the fresh rebuild.  I replaced hypereutetic with forged pistons.  I put in the Mobile 1 10W30 after talking with Jet boat performance.  They said 20-50 was what they use, but the 10-30 should be fine.  I will replace it with a heavier blend if I sense any problems.  I can't imagine it will be anything but better than the 10-30 regular oil I was running in it... :-\

On both of my cars and my boat, every time I run synthetic they burn a quart. I go back to regular oil and its fine. Doesnt burn any. I run 10w50 in my boat (BBC) and no leaks/no burn. Just my $.02
the jet boat never did this to you bob ::)
Can I get next in line behind The Beav
