    Hi guys,

    Anything completely mineral

    Most will be around the 10W40 mark too, which is spot on

    Once you've run it in you can go back to full/part synthetic oils

    if its freshly rebuilt (first start ect) there is proper running in oil.

    use this for the first 500ks.

    then as toxin said, go to a normal mineral oil, and new filter.

    then once thats done. use the best oil you can afford.

    all spot on and remember not to flog it until you have run it in
    the dyno pull to 300rwkw

    BT20v is making 300rwkw like i said i would without nitrous so now its time for some spray and see if she will run a 10s or less

    or ignore that and flog the shit out of it as has been discussed many times

    babying an engine is the worst thing you can do to it when running it in.

    sorta. its not that simple.

    youre meant to drive the car under load and vary the rpm.. all the way up to about 80% of red line. not just free rev.

    I tottaly agree with the comment above,

    as for the oil I have been told that using coles/safeway type oil is a good bet

    as slydar has said, varying load on the engine is DEFINITLY the way to go, none of this 'rev the shit out of it' business.
