Hey guys and girls.
I have finally completed the turbo upgrade and new cambelt change so i want to change the engine oil to get rid of a small quantity of water left by the old turbo.

so my question is.....what grade engine oil is recomended for a r33 gtst running approx 380 to 400bhp?

Used IDEMITSU Semi synthetic 10w50 or 15w50 or CASTROL Magnatech 10w40

fully synthetic is good for new engine and 5 years old engine but not recommended for 10 years old engine or above

put some additive such as engine treatment (STP,NASA Or Nulon or x1 r) but flush it with engine flush oil before pouring the new m oil and engine treatment oil.

injector cleaner also recommend after 6000km

5w40 or 10w50 is good for winter 15w50 is good for summer

Sorry in advance for this but I really do tire of time wasters regurgitating the same old myths, they should spend some time on their homework instead.

I think you'll find if you use proper oil you won't need additives, indeed they can ruin the show entirely on occasion.. and where did that crap about older engines and synthetic oils come from?

I am constantaly amazed at the naivety of some drivers, doesn't anyone do research any more? It would save having to read all this crap and myth propagation over and over again if folk "got some education" prior to posting such hogwash as "fully synthetic is good for new engine and 5 years old engine but not recommended for 10 years old engine or above", for heavens sake, go and pester some Ford Escort owners.

I think what Mr Aitch is trying to say is that not all information given out on the internet is entirely accurate! :whip: Some of us know enough to make good decisions based on user manuals, the decisions of other, well-informed individuals and on the advice of vendors. Then there are the other two extremes; those who don't understand a topic and follow the crowds (and, unfortunately, miseducate others), and those who have deeply researched a topic and perhaps hold extensive knowledge, backed up by results, on that topic.

My advice would be to ask the latter type which, in this case, would be oilman, who uses this forum :)


The car world, as we all know, is a terrible one for giving birth to far-flung rumours and "facts", the best we can do is stomp out the misconceptions one by one. God knows they annoy me from time to time! :uhoh: :D

I also read this post earlier and thought...EH!?!?!

I know that oilman is a trader on here and such must be looking for sales but having spoken to him on the phone and read many an in depth thread posted by him regards the complexities of oil and its uses and makeup, i am 100% sure that this is a man who knows his business!
If he says that fully synth is the way for our cars then i am happy to take his word for it.
I know that there may well be others who hold different opinions for whatever reason(*see above posts) but as far as i'm concerned if i need advice, competitive prices and super quick delivery in any oil related matters in the future i know who i shall be calling...opie oils! :cheers:

The misinformation problem only exists because there are donkeys (singular: "donkey" -adj: an animal too stupid to think for itself, gen: not capable of learning, specific: stupid creature) who won't drink even when you push them in the water hole.

this question has been asked and answered so many times and theres not 1 only correct answer to it, what oil you use depends on f e what the car will be used for and in which temperature and ...
theres no need to bark at other users answering a newbies question, even if you have another point of view so if you have an itch Aitch then just scratch dont post here
even if its incorrect to say fully synth is no good for engines over 10 years old, saying fully synth is the only way is absolute :bs2: aswell cuz theres plenty of people even on here that dont use fully synth without any probs
