Oil advice for modifiers


Recommended Posts

If you are modding your car and adding BHP or using it off road then consider your oil choice carefully as the stock manufacturers recommended oil will not give you the protection that your engine requires.

A standard oil will not be thermally stable enough to cope with higher temperatures without "shearing" meaning that the oil will not give the same protection after a couple of thousand miles as it it when it was new.

Agreed for running in you need a mineral based oil, the engine relies on the poor lubrication of these to to score everything up, bed it in.

Once an engine is run in then a decent synthetic of the right viscosity is ideal.
