pick whatever oil you prefer, just change it at the specified interval. and please, dont use fram oil filters, they can damage your cam phasers... use original filter, k&n, purolator... etc.

But my transmission didn't make it to 75000 miles....

stop using fram filters, they contribute to the cam phaser problem. they have a bad drain back valve.
