1987 924S Lubrication

Engine

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 924; Year: 1987; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 49,034;

I recently purchased a 1987 924S with 49k original miles. I am new to the Porsche world and am seeking any/all advice. I very much welcome any general suggestions you are willing to provide about Porsche ownership. The car is in great condition and a PPI from a reputable Porsche mechanic revealed nominal issues - nothing that I can't tackle myself. I intend to perform all basic maintenance and leave the more advanced work to the experts. I have read with interest many of your responses concerning oil selections. I live in Central PA and the car will be used for pleasure drives during the Summer months. I noticed in the maintenance records from the prior owner that sometimes 20W50 oil was used and other times 10W40. The owners manual doesn't suggest a specific oil weight. Do you have any advice? Don't worry, I'll change it early and often.... How about oil filter brand?
