I am the new owner of a 2000 Mustang GT.
This is my first Modular motor and i am a little unsure as to what oil I should use in it. I bought it from a dealer in Chicago and before I drove it 4hrs home I had them change the black nasty oil. I went to a local parts store and bought Lucus 10w30. I didn't notice at the time that the oil fill cap is labeled 5w20. That seems really light for a V8. Anyways, what do you all suggest?

It is about ready to hit 100k, What weight would be best and would it be ok to switch to synthetic at this point?
