Oil Choice

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

I have owned my Evo 7 GSR for a couple months now and was wondering what oil people run?

 

i recently changed my oil with the Valvoline race oil i think it was called VR1 or something.. it was 10W-40 but i have noticed that when the motor is hot the top end makes alot more noise then it used to on idle.

Using penrite everyday 10W-40 full synthetic in my 7 ATM first change haven't had no noise problems as before not sure what last owner had in it but made a fair bit more noise.

 

Used this oil in other turbo engines without problems also used nulon, royal purple etc etc.

 

I wouldnt go back to purple just too expensive when the penrite does the job for me.
