Switching from Conventional Oil to Synthetic Blend.
Hey guys, I have a few questions concerning the oil I'm about to put in my F23A4. Since 25k miles (There's currently 63k miles on the block), since I've had it that is, I've put just regular old oil in the car. My last oil change I put in Castrol GTX with an K&N Oil filter. I was wondering whether there would be any problem with switching to Castrol GTX Synthetic Blend and whether it would cause any problems to my engine? I plan on switching to Full Synthetic once I've put in Synthetic blend for about 20k miles or so? Is this ok?

most "blends" are like 80% conventional oil anyway, a marketing scam.
got any links to that percentage of dino-synthetic ratio? just curious...

Would there be any problem with using syn blend this oil change and then throw in full syn next time? What are you currently running in your f23a1 notorious?
you can switch from blend to full synth next change no worries.
I am using Royal Purple 5w30 full synthetic, but that's because I've got a built motor and boost the **** out of it. I ran it on dino oil for breakin, started w/ 10w40 for 3 oil changes (1st one within 20 miles!), went to 10w30, and finally after 3k+ miles changed to full synth.
