Sh!t man you better tell the oil companies that!!! You know things they don't.TyreToaster said:i have used almost every oil outhere on everything from kingswoods to late model lexus and penrite holds the best oil pressure in the hotter conditions, those trendy synthetics like the mobil and shell are so thin you may as well be using tap water, especially on an engine using large clearences like the 302, and if the motor has a few kays on it even better reason to avoid those synthetics.
those water oils should be left to modern motors designed for them.
Couldn't agree more. I am beginning to wonder if the deletion of oil pressure guages from sports instuments of current models is response to pressure from the purveyers of modern synthetics.TyreToaster said:Like I said on the engine he runs I recommend Penrite (didn’t state which grade intentionally (as I don’t know of his temperature/driving style/distances) but you were quick to jump on a well marketed brand even though it is not as suitable.
His motor has larger clearances and the synthetic shit will only do harm, maybe I should tell the oil companies this information since I do know all hey??, oh hang on they know that 10-40w is no good for old motors so they don’t recommend it but muzzas like to run it to pick up 3kw at the cost of low oil pressure.
So tell me because shell tells you Ferrari uses its oils do you think there talking about that 50 dollar shit u run? Does that mean I should run it in my ford? Remember your driving a primitive car not using current world class technology but a design form the 60’s.
By the way what does u do for a living? I change oil as part of mine as glamorous as it isn’t so I may have some input on this topic, I make it a habit to try and not respond to a post if I don’t genuinely have some useful info to share, I’m not here to sell a product so what I say is almost always un biased.
