You might want to check your plugs too if you have excessive tick.
Yup good choice as well. The old Mobil 1 15w50 (or 15w40?) was a great oil. I think the new long-life is a decent synthetic these days, and relatively cheap.

We actually use diesel oil in the race cars (15w40) for engine break in and initial run in, then switch to teh amsoil or TWS.
