Try them all, depending on where you live the 20w-50
might not be a good idea till it gets nice and warm.
All cars are different, and they all seem to have a
favorite.  I put 10w-30 syn in mine, and it hates it,
low pressure, noisy NEW lifters.  I had to because of
the cold snap last month.  I'll probably switch back
to the 20w-50 or what ever the red cap mobil one syn
is in a few weeks.  Oh yea, I've had alright luck with
bosch filters, OEM's are always the best though.
