Amsoil Synthetic 0w-30 signature oil, Filter Amsoill # EA035, Trans oil Amsoils 5w-40 European oil. I did this complete change out 02/02/0...What a difference in the transmission...silky smooth.

I use Jesus Brand 5W-30, it's slick like salvation. Without being more of a dick, it hardly matters. You will not feel any performance gains using one oil versus another and everybody uses different oil. Synthetic oil is theoretically better because the molecules are purportedly uniform in size, but when you really think about that it's the difference between .01953 thousandths of an inch vs. .01955 thousandths. I would say just stick to oil from a mainstream manufacturer, change it occasionally and most importantly DON'T DRIVE YOU CAR LIKE A PISSED OFF TEENAGER. <<< Best protection money can buy.
