Pentosyth HP II 5W40 motor oil

I need to get a few things from eeuro and just noticed i need oil. Is this any good. I usually run synthetic rotella T in my stock 9-3 but amsoil/royal purple in my stage 4 9-3. I need oil for the moded 9-3. Opinions

Pentosin oil is among the best oils in the world. I'm not sure if this stuff is made by Pentosin, but if it is you can be sure it is great stuff.

Quick question: why don't you run rotella in your modded car?

I run it in my Viggen, its all I use in that car. My local auto parts supplier stocks it. They are a local shop, but part of the KOI network, so not sure if its their relation to KOI or not. No complaints with it here.

Ok, in the end alot of it doesnt come down to what oil you use (assuming consistent weight) but how regularly you change it. I would love to get my oil analyzed someday, just to see how Rotella is working. I would definately go with the Pentosin, that is some of the best oil in the market. Ferrari actually has Pentosin make a special 'Ferrari batch' for them, at least thats what a top Ferrari tech told me.

$40 for 5 quarts? seriously? I can't imagine that stuff works that much better than other "cheap" synthetic oils.

Rotella T Synth is fine for tuned cars. I've seen some UOA's for Rotella T on tuned Subaru's (350whp STI's) with very nice results at 4-5K OCI's. Rotella T Synth has a high total base number, and withstand high-temp shearing better than Mobil 1.

Use a good filter (GM long life, Mann, PureOne, Wix/Napa Gold, etc).
Pick a good Visc (5W-40 is good).
Change it regularly.
All is good.
Why spend ridiculous money on oils?
Unless you are running in endurance racing, or seeing a LOT of track time, just use a good name brand synth.

A 5L jug of Pento HP 5w40 is ~$25 locally.

Then I just purchase Mann oil filters in bulk and I'm good to go.

That's a pretty high visc oil, probably pretty decent protection even in the heat.

I don't have any direct experience with that oil, however. Mobil 1 is a good oil, but I think it definitely requires heavier than typical viscosities to protect turbo engines.

The people over at bobistheoilguy.com might have more insight into that particular oil.

I use it in my boat which is a 1999 Shamrock 246 which has a multi port FI Chevrolet V-8 that puts out 330 shp (shaft horsepower). I ran 25w-40 oil during the first 50 hours for break-in. Operating a marine engine is akin to driving up a steep grade constantly. Boat has 865 hours of use........No problems..No oil use ..........I still would use either 0w-40 Mobil1 or 5w-40 Mobil 1 which is what I use in my viggen.
