5w40 synthetic oil...no additives required. For me it's worked for over 223k miles and I still have the original injectors.

2-stroke TWC-3 ashless at one oz per gallon of fuel. You may find using less is better say .5oz per gallon. Since the ULSD doesn't have the lubrication as before the TWC-3 helps the lubrication properties.

Some stock stuff, some modded stuff, some deleted stuff.....

Agree with Heavy on the oil. I tried Prolong with the Rotella T6 5-40 and couldn't tell any difference, although I do think Prolong helped when I used to run 15-40.
Fuel i use the Motorcraft stuff PM22 - works well I believe.

with the injection system presurising the oil to nearly 4000 psi adding a oil additive is a good way potentially change the properties of oil used and make it foam. the only reason i would ever consider using a additive is a last ditch effort to keep from replacing injectors and probably not even then

Fuel additive

I tell you what i ran into at Napa. I asked the fellas what the boys were using.He recommend Star Tron , Lucas is also good also, Now i tried Star Tron and could not believe it started much quicker, ran way better, the worst part is i didn't know it was that slow. Man it really scoots now and i keep it under 3000.I also put the blue spring in so that may have helped also. I also have put it in a buddy s 5.9 Cummings and he was surprised also.They also mit for gas cars.I have a 08 Honda Odyssey now i noticed that it wanted to jump off the line and seemed alot quicker. I also use it in my motorcycle and mowers.
