Synth is always better than semi on modern engines.

We ran all of our competiton 160 engines on Mobil 1 or Silkolene Pro R at MG S & R so if its good enough for them....

As for flushing I personally never have with std oil changes and don't think you really need to.

However someone probably has on this forum so they'll be able to recommend a good one
