That's what I'm using now, it's good oil. I'm nearing my oil change point, and I don't think I'm going to use it again though. Towards the end here it seems like the viscosity modifiers are breaking down. Just a hunch.

I'm going to be giving Redline 10W-60 a shot.

Not from anyone on here, no ones tried it yet. Figured I'd be the guinnea pig.

Lots of great choices for motor oil these days. IMHO, any quality synthetic will get the job done.

QHorsepower 5W-40 is the factory spec oil so just about everyone that had their car serviced at the dealer is running this oil. There are a few dealers that offer different specs but most use the factory recommended oil.

Best Regards,
