    V8 newbie oil question.

    Hi guys. I recently got myself a truck with a 305ci sbc in it.
    The engine code says it's from an 89 firebird.
    What oil would you recommend?

    I use that classic car oil you can buy in Wilcos or Halfrauds, this is not a recommendation but I change the oil once a year (3000 miles) anyway

    I've asked him mike and he can't remember!

    There's no injection or sensors.
