Here's my oil history of my 05 GT\MT5
New. SOA filter & oil 4000 miles
1st. change till 30k, Mobil1 5w-30 every 6000 miles \ filter every 3000 miles
30k to pressent [68k] Amsoil 0w-30 series 2000 severe service synthetic oil & Amsoil EA0-020 oil filter every 15k.
This car has seen so far, 50 run down the drag strip & 100 miles round trip to work, and it's only 20 mos. old. Has over 68k on her.
My GT has always used alittle oil. SOA oil; just under a 1\4 qt. in 4k
Mobil1 oil; just under a 1\2 gt. in 6k
Amsoil oil; just under a 3\4 gt.in 15k
I'll try to check those banjo filters this weekend. I will just get rid of them all togther. If I trust Amsoil's oil & filter for 15k oil \ filter change. I can trust Amsoil to keep my turbo working just fine. Without those little filters. And remember, even dirty oil is better then no oil. I think the little filters have to go.
