There's no sticking with any particular oil once you get it. You can always revert back without a problem.

If you change your oil at normal intervals, it doesn't matter what oil you use. Synthetic may get a few more miles but who wants to really push it when it only takes 30 minutes to do an oil change.

I use whatever is on sale.

I used royal purple for a while. I stopped when my block cracked. I thought it was just a BHG so I swapped the head gasket and you could tell it was still burning coolant. With the Royal purple you couldn't really tell there was coolant in the oil.

I used a metal HG and just figured it didn't seal right. So I changed it again for a felpro. This time used regular oil and when I drained it, it came out looking like chocolate milk.

Yeah that day sucked.

It seems like EDGE is a really good product. Apparently it is a Group IV oil like Mobil 1 EP (EDIT: This may not be true, EDGE may only be a Group III).

Castrol also has a $15 off mail in rebate for the Edge!

All the Porsche guys swear by Brad Penn oil. Seems to be reasonably priced. Not even sure if it's synthetic or not. But even all the engine builders I know swear by this stuff.

I have it in my porsche since my mechanic puts it in for me. Other cars are running Castrol synthetic since thats what I have always used. I might try Brad Penn but I never see it in the stores.

Pennzoil Platinum showed great resistance to fuel dilution and break down when used in MZR engines. This is all according to a OA. So as long as I own the ms3 it will get PP.
