Don't mean to hijack the thread but I'd like to go with heavier weight oil in my stock motor but never do. I keep hearing mixed things about using such an oil with stock clearances. What oil would you suggest be used for an aggressive DD? I'm constantly shifting at high rpms

1turbofocus Yes I do

svtf1417 Do you use 20-50 on engines that have stock clearances?
09-21-2012 04:09 PM
1turbofocus Then I would check the raid , flush and clean it and go from there , a datalog of a cruise doing this would also be nice
