  • oil to use for 1ggte

    hi guys i just bought my z20 recently and want to do a oil change can anyone suggest a good engine oil and weight to use for a 72,000kms 1ggte auto im pushing 10psi with aftermarket intercooler and cat back 3inch.
    i dont want to use crap oil as that would be a shame and not good for the engine

      in your engine bay somewhere quite easy to see it will say 10w30. and autobarn has no 1g-gte filters listed so ask them and theyll check on the computer and get you the right one. but you can use the 7m filters too im pretty sure

          Factory specified is 10w30 Many people with 1g-gte's use 15-40 for years and is all good I'd go 15-40 just don't go something too different from what the manufacturer recommends.

          I reckon we need a FAQ and General info and service list so then there will be no need to search for things through the forum.

          Oil Filter is Ryco Z418

                I've used a few different brands of oil and weights so far I've found Castrol edge Sports 10-60 to be the best for me.
                Thats My personal choice so far and i must stress that it only what i personally thought was the best.
