Most of those alloy head motors will be more than happy on ULP...try PULP...if the car starts pinging give it some supplement to add for the lubricant the lrp has. But seriously dont run it on LRp...that is some bad shit....I pulled the spark plugs out of my supra 6, to see they were coated in this orange soot like substance...And i was told that my valves and piston tops would look very similar...the car ran much smoother on PULP...went better too..
Regarding problems with xe falcons, i know xd sometimes suffered head gasket and overheating problems. Just keep good control of the cooling system, flush coolant and check levels regularly...thats a common problem with them being neglected...generally good, regular maintenance should keep you out of trouble.
Id run the car on penrite hpr 30/ 40...very nice mineral oils which run very nice in the car and seem to look after them very well...All of the cars in my family have been running flawlessly on the stuff for years, so i can reccomend it without hesitation.

I guess my main reason for wanting to run it on ULP was to save a few $$$. Seeing that PULP is more expensive than LRP, I think I'll be sticking to that. But I agree, LRP is not exactly nectar of the God's.
Yeah mate either is fine, but as i said if it starts pinging then add some supplement, i reccomended the pulp because it provides better lubricant and is better for the engine, especially one thats come from a leaded fuel, which the lead actually helps as a lubricant...so it tends to be nicer on old engines...Just personal preference thats all...my 302 has hardned valve seats etc...so it will be run with pulp at all times...may turn expensive, but thats motorsport for you!! :) Generally treat them well and they'll last a lifetime!!
