    Oil Recommendation for Subaru WRX STI (EJ207)

    Plenty Sccobs here in SA and the UK use Motul 300V...mostly the 10w-40 and 15w-50...with your winter temps you can consider the 0w-20 or 5w-30. Never hear one modder or customer complain about issues using this lube and plenty are pushing 300+ KW at the wheels.

    2010 GTI 2.0tsi Factory Overfill

    Point 2 is where it is supposed to be. If it is at point 1 it is overfill by 700ml...which is a lot in my view. If this is the TFSI motor with the filter unit at the bottow (new TSI have the filter at the top) then I would just take the pan cover off and push the drain nossel (orange unit) and...

    Mixing VW 504/507 oil

    Hi all, I have a 2.0l TFSI motor in my car and I run Motul 300v 5w-40 in it. I needed a small topup(100ml) today and I mistakenly poured in some Liqui-Moly 4200 (VW504/507 spec) in (it was in a Motul 300v bottle..yes I hear it that wasn't the brightest idea <img...

    BMW LL 04 Not suitable for BMW petrol engines

    I bought some of this oil (SLX Pro 0w-40)for my 130i BMW and found the following specs from Castrol UK where it says it comes from (on the bottle). TBN looks ok. I also got some 0w-30 SLX Pro. Test Method(s) Unit Typical Relative Density 15°C ASTM D4052 g/ml .841 Appearance Visual clear and...

    PCV bypass for VW 2.0 FSI Description/DIY (long)

    Saaber1, clearly you are offended to behave in such a puerile manner. Thus you have my unbridled apology for any offence I may have caused you; I hope you could assist me to understand this better as you did for Gay Allan. Anyway more to the point: Yes that was for the TSI motor which operates...

    Yes yes, I was refering to the original setup.... Anyway you are detracting from the important part which is the gas outlet at the back...the one you have blocked up...before you have to mention that again. <img src="/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/spankme2.gif" alt="" title="spank" height="37"...

    PCV bypass for VW 2.0 FSI Description/DIY (long)

    Hi Saaber1, That is the diagram I was refering to, thanks. I think we are actually saying similar things, just one corretion on what you said.The PCV unit has two valves in it, when there is boost (read pressure in the intake manifold) the PCV acts like a one way valve and stops any flow into...

    PCV bypass for VW 2.0 FSI Description/DIY (long)

    This is an interesting solution. My only concern is that you block out the pipe venting to the turbo intake (behind the motor). This would prevent the venting of PCV gasses under boost since the PCV valve unit channels it that way when under load and under no load it opens and channels the...

    Motor Warm up

    Ok, thanks everyone for your replies, even though it all went off track at one point. Much appreciated. I normally let my cars go closed loop before heading off at an easy pace until at operating temp. Tx

    Motor Warm up

    Hi all, long time since I posted here. What are your opinions on the best method of warming up a car motor (petrol/gas), either with a turbo or naturally aspirated? Some say, start idle for 30 seconds and drive moderatly, others say start idle for thirty seconds and then bilp the throttle for...

    Why BMW N52 engine have higher oil consumption?

    I find this strange, I have a 330i (2007) E90 and have only once had to put 500ml of oil into it in 30000km. I also have a 130i (2007) and have never had to add a drop. I do change the oil in-between the BMW services, so I run the oil about 12000km. I also run Liqui-Moly's LL04 oil. My 2.0 TFSI...

    how thick is GC 0w/30 when it heat up ?

    If memory serves me correctly, it is 12,9cST @ 100 degres C. So its more a ..40 than a 30 oil.

    BMW original factory fill

    BMW use to use Castrol TXT 5w-30, which was LL01. Castrol consolidated it's product lineup and now BM use SLX professional 5w-30, which is LL04...honestly I think the whole thing was a package change exercise. The oil is a Grp 3 as far as I am aware. Neither great nor bad...I think you can do...
