You have just started the great oil battle.

Synthetic has no real advantages to it, except you can run it abit longer. You cna switch back and forth as much as you want.

As for the throttle body and the afe air box, its just gonna make it sound cool. Our trucks already have a cold air intake, and all the airflow they could ever want and then some.

I think you're wrong man. If there is no real advantage to using synthetic oil, then why do they use synthetic motor oil in jet engines? An obvious advantage.
