What oil weight to run in a new 6.2L? Stay with the Ford recommended 5W-20, even in hot environments. Responses from a police fleet mechanic with high mileage Crown Vics (CVPI) saying 5W-20 worked well for them even in Chicago heat and long idles.

Dyno Charts: Ford F-150 5.0L and SuperDuty 6.2L, at the rear wheels
http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1029759-5-0l-vs-6-2l.html
A tuner, 5 Star, posts a dyno chart of an 5.0L F-150 and a 6.2L F-350. The 5.0L shows more rear wheel torque and horsepower, likely due to the driveline losses being much higher in the SuperDuty.

Discuss the differences in 6.2L V8 HP ratings in sub-10K GVWR (385hp) versus over-10K (316hp). It boils down to the EPA noise requirements to rate at 4179rpm.
