    10w30 or 10w40 is what is recommended

    ive got redline 10w30 in mine.

    as long as you dont buy a cheap ass oil you should be fine. so mobil 1, redline, royal purple etc

      I have been using Castrol Edge 0W-40 with good results. Recently as an emergency i used Castrol Edge 5W-30 and i found it to be too thin. Oil pressure at idle was too low and oil temps got hotter (110deg+).

      I'm about to try out Motul 300v Chrono 10W-40.

      If you're having trouble with cold start, maybe try an oil with a thinner W value? 0W-40 could be good for you. I don't think the 10W-60 would be doing you any favours. 60 is quite thick.

          Hahaha I find this always so interesting to listen too.

          I use to work in an oil analysis lab. Viscosity Changes so frequently. Turbo set ups should definatly use diffrent oil in my opinion. Most will do the job suitably well.

          There are many more things that are far more crucial to look out for like silicon levels in your oil from filter and intake set ups. It was amazing seeing how much shit a pod filter lets it. Granted the induction is much better but i Would suggest changing your oil far more frequently if you dont run a airbox filter set up.
