penrite 10w 60 turbo oil best shit for price.. only ever used it .. Remember to go thinner oils with turbo motor to get good drainage out of the turboz.. If ya dont bye bye seals

15w40 or 10w40 ... if it were my engine i would only use motul.. but there are a few good oils out their.. in the end its your engine and your choice of what u would trust.. if it saves your engine i dont mind spending an extra 30-40 bux on oil. does it have forged internals? if it does use a 15-40 slighly thicker as manufactures clearence tollerences are alot tighter than that of aftermarket part recomendations.

i like royoal purple ... 10w40 . bit expensive .. but good shit ...

depends what sort of driving you do with your car ...

for street i reckon something half decent and do regluar changes..street drivin and thrash here and there, decent oil with the right weight will be enough, fresh oil is alot better then expensive old oil ...

but if you gonna go racing .. then its a whole different story imo.
