Racing engine??

Probably a very good 20/50 or better 20/60
Motul do one I believe that is good but a bit pricey. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Motul-300V-Le-Mans-20W60-2-Litres-/200910294492#vi-content
Or I have just bought some of this stuff:

though it was a bargain at the stoneleigh spares day at £19 a tub!
Takes about 4 1/2 litres, plus a bit extra for the oil cooler I hope you are using.

This is assuming you do drive the car very hard, on track and so on. Otherwise other oils may be suitable eg valvoline VR1 20/50 from eurocarparts

Gearbox oil is EP 80, 90 or 80/90 but needs to be a GL4 spec oil, not GL5. There is a semisynthetic variation about somewhere, may be better?

Oil filter, there are a few that fit and numbers vary. But should be easily available (ask for a spitfire oil filter, more likely to be listed)
