ok........so i read all 8 chapters and even did the quizz's. I am still confused. Where does the "30" in 10W-30 come from? The W comes from the cold temp cS right? I get that the lower the "W" the better, because it has a lower V at startup, but it still maintains about the same V as a heavier weight oil at high temps. Also what the hell is as "straight" oil like "straight" 30? So in the end what oil should we be using for our cars in

1. DD street only
2. Heavy street/light track
3. Track only

Thumbs up Re: Motor Oil - All Chapters, Inclusive -Hat Tip to Ferrarichat.com

Great article, I think I'm going to try 5w20 in my STi, maybe 0w-30.

Great write up, for the people that actually spend the time to read through the whole thing, it will provide them the information they need to make an educated decision on what oil they should be running. I think this weekend I am going to change my DD civic oil to 0-30, I think that i am going to leave the STI at 5-30 for now but in both of them they are going to stay Synthetic for obvious reasons in the article.

This was great to send to my buddy who has a 70 challenger who thinks that he need to put in 10-40 or thicker plus a **** load of oil stabilizer, then wonders why the car is running hot...

Found this big info on EVOM, sorry if it has nothing to do with Boxer Engines. Thought it would point out the new "Oil Clean Rules" these new oils were using dont have the same lubrication of oil's we once knew.

Don't use mobile 1, it will ruin your journal turbo - evolutionm.net
