 Mark,  change the oil and filter every 3000 miles and use any oil you want 
that meets the newer SAE specs. which is most of them.
    The specs are more stringent than they used to be. For instance they 
have a test that is geared towards cam wear that they didn't have 10 years 
ago. Guy's talk about friction modifiers like it's a scourge, the only thing 
you have to watch is that they don't make your clutch slip..
  I have 98700 on the clock (actually 100k real miles) on GTX 10/40 and Fram 
filters and I don't see any difference in power than the the day I bought 
it. Of course now I've said that, it will crap out tomorrow..
