I never heard of the brand, so I can't comment. I stick with major brand names.

Since you don't have the "run of the mill" Mustang GT, I'd strongly suggest joining a SVT Enthusiasts Online Forum (free to join, of course)...That being said, I DID find an SVT forum with someone asking the exact same question you did...The #1 answer was almost unanimous: Mobil 1 Full Synthetic Oil, but others were mentioned as top picks as well. (I've never heard of Shaeffers either, I'd suggest a well known brand, for certain).

What ever oil you use,make sure you use a motorcraft oil filter,don't even think about using a Fram filter,not on the Cobra engines anyway.
