I know it was discussed at length on the other POS board, but nothing here......yet. I've been using VR1 (Off-Road) since the engine was new. It now has 1/2 a season on it (24.8 hrs). I'm considering Synthetic now.
The engine ran 49lbs. of o/p @ 6200rpms under a long boosted run. I used straight 50w oil. I had Paul shim the o/p up a tad, hoping to see 60lbs of o/p during a hard run now. I do not have an oil cooler at this time, and oil temps didn't seem out of control (200*-220*).
Will 50wt. Syn have the same o/p as 50w. Dino ?
Do Syn's have any tendencies to leak more than Dino's ?
Will they run lower temps than Dino's ?
P.S. I'm upping my boost from 5lbs. to 10 lbs.
PP.SS. Have fun with this thread Sleeper CP
