What oil for xr6t?

I have a 2 month old xr6t ute with 4000 km on the clock that i am fairly happy with so far! Only real problem so far is a ute liner that started to warp a little bit and is being covered by warranty. Can anyone help me with advice on when can i put it on a fully synthetic oil? What brand and grade is the best, ive heard different opinions on this, 0w40 or 5w50??

Great question,
I was about to ask the same one, I would like to use Castrol if I can because I am a Castrol distributor and can get it at a good price, please advise.

Go the turbo.

Hi
I think most people are saying to do at least 10000km before going to a syn oil, I use Penrite Syn 5 .

Go the turbo.
Castrol Formula R 10w-60 would be the way to go.

Cheers.
