For a standard road car, you can't go wrong with one of these.

5w-40 is ideal, have a look at Fuchs and Motul for good value. If you want the very best then you are looking at the ester based synthetics such as the Silkolene Pro S and the Motul 300v but they are expensive.

Would this be good for a 03 VTS, Fast road cams, Induction, Manifold.

And could you recommend an oil filter.

Hi,

Yes the Mobil 1 0w-40 is ideal, a god quality PAO synthetic.

For filter just use the look up guide on our site, we do Purolator which are oem spec and approved.

Cheers
