I used Quaker State Horsepower Full Synthetic and a S&P oil filter. All the places that I go to mark the K&N up like mofos so I don't buy those.

And 04IonQC, it might not be necessary to use synthetic in a NA car, but with the punishment I put on it, I kinda need to. Plus I'm planning on going FI here later, so better now than later.
