About to do an oil change, I was just wondering what kind of oil you 9K turbo guys use?

I run 10w30 full synth in mine, usually castrol gtx or kendall. After all the talk about Mobil 1 and its supposedly bad tendencies I'll never use that. I'd rather be safe then sorry.

My old 95 had lots more miles and was on dino oil when I got it and stayed on dino oil till I solid it.

I'm on Mobile 1 right now about to switch to Royal Purple and give that a shot, Synthetic is the way to go, your car will run ten times smoother.

I've switched to 10w-30 castrol in my 9-3 and I will probably start using the same in my 9000, unless I can get amsoil 15w-40 for a good price.
