Castrol Syntec 5w-30, course I only have 37,254 miles. Might move up to 10w-30 at 50,000 mile oil change.

Agreed... They all lubricate.

Talking I dissagree....kinda

Well all oils DO lubricate, but if that was the only thing you needed, we would all put KY Jelly into our engines, and ALWAYS be lubricated. We all know that lubrication fights friction, and friction causes wear, and failure.

However oil also fights heat, and synthetic oils help alot. I just wanted to say that, because I wanted to type something...lol.

So really it DOES matter, and we all know it. Just keep the sythetics flowing!

Our Supra’s, which art in the driveway,
Hollowed be thy power, thy mods are great, thy speed endless,
On the road or at the track. Give us this day free of cops,
And forgive us our impound charges, as we forgive those who are slow.
And lead us not into speed traps, and deliver us from the interceptors,
For thine is our car, the power, and the glory…forever and ever….amen.

I have always used royal purple. I love it. But remember, its everyone opinion. Everyone has there oil. I recently bout a civic with 150,000 miles. The guy was runing that walmart oil (supertech) in it. I out it on the dyno, it put out 112 hp. I then changed the oil and trans fluid to royal purple. After drivin the car for a week, i went back to my buddys dyno, i was amazed. It actually put out 122 hp. Oil is the motors blood. The less friction, the more power, and less heat. Always break a engine in with a regular oil. Preferabbly castrol. Because castrol has a lot of detergents in it, it cleans that assembly lube very quick. Start the engine, let it warm up, the change the oil, drive it for 100 miles, then change it again, the go to 500, change it, then when you are at 1000, miles put synthetic oil in. You really want to run synthetic when running a turbo. We all know that heat kills the ball bearings in turbos. Synthetic oils are good for about 500 degrees. Royal purple all the way..
