    What kind of oil do you run???

    I was changing the oil in my WS6 a few days ago when i did my cam swap and was just curious what brand and weight of oil all you other LSX gear heads like to run. Also do any of you recommend synthetic or semisynthetic ect?

    Whoa nelly!
    OK...I'll go first
    Conventional oil such as Castrol GTX is as "good" as synthetic when ran for 5K or 6 months....good filter like Napa/Wix/AC Delco/Amsoil/KN/Mobil1 have a tremendous impact....Fram sucks donkey ass......always swap air filters every other oil change or if your running a "performance" air filter clean it (do not over oil).....if you want a synthetic oil I recommend Amsoil/Royal Purple/Pennzoil Platinum/RedLine (top shelf) or Castrol Syntec/Mobil1 (Synthetic Blends).....as for weights....most UOA's on LSX's motors reflect superior wear numbers from 5-40 or 10-40 weights.....
    This is my signature. It is mine. Nobody else has one like it.
