my local garage has advised silkolene pro 10w 50
and another garage told me silkolene pro will just burn because it is fully synthetic and told me to use a part synthetic turbo oil 10w 40 what do guys reckon which oil will be best i have a gts 93 57k miles?

My local tuner always puts Valvolene 15/50 in on my oil changes (every 3-4k miles), pressure is always good even after a thrash and rarely needs topping up.
Done just over 60k and 10k of that's since it was re-built tho!

Think i got 5w/40 off the oilman last time i ordered-the other bottles in the loft at the moment. Advised for a lightly tuned daily driver, gives good protection on cold start. Need if for when winter comes back!

Will any of this burn off/need topping up over the 3k?

you can run silkolene pro S for well over 10k, if you change before then you're throwing away good oil, unless you do track days.
Really? Would this not damage the engine/turbo if you effectivley doubled the service interval though?

Was going to do mine once i've covered another 2000miles. To keep it at 5000mile intervals. But if this is going to throw away good oil i'll do it later on.
:cheers:

I use 10W40 Semi, in my GTR it runns brill, i have had no problems. I got recomended the silcoline 10w50 fully but found it hard to come by. I have also been told it's a bike oil and not a car oil, according to my local bike dealer.

Opie oils recommended the silkolene 10/50 to me and as he sells it all day long and its his business i trust his advice.
