    cvl, Where did you get the specs? Man, I could find only this much information . A friend of mine who competes in Mazda Miata Challenge (?) will try MOTUL 0w20 soon. It'd be very interesting to see what kind of oil pressure he will see.....

    AGIP 5w-40

    I looked at their MSDS . It says, 'Severely Hydrotreated Paraffinic Hydrocarbons' . To me, AGIP 5w40 looks like Group III oil.

    synthetic oil for BMWs

    I don't what year model your BMW is, but I'd look for BMW LongLife-01 approval mark. The following oils will meet & exceed that requirement: Mobil 1 0w-40 GC 0w-30 I bet there are a lot more than those two, but I can't think of other than two right now. I believe BMW LL-01 requirements are: 1...

    What's up with MOTULs' calcium level? It seems that it has less calcium than regular dino oils.

    Best brake fluid

    I use MOTUL RBF 600 on my rally car. This stuff is really amazing. It gives a rock sold pedal feel. My street vehicle, Trans Am gets MOTUL 5.1. MOTUL 5.1 is Non-Silicon based 100% synthetic fluid and also much much cheaper than RBF 600.

    Stainless Steel Exhaust Flanges?

    Who makes stainless steel exhaust flanges? I am trying to build a 2.5" or 3" custom exhaust. I don't care if it is 2 bolt or 3 bolt pattern. 3/8 thickness would be very nice! I hate rusty exhaust systems more than anything else If anyone knows suppliers and their web sites, please post it here...

    How do you ship oils?

    I am trying to get rid of overstocked German Castrol. My local UPS & FedEx are giving me a hard time. They are telling me that I can not ship motor oil becasue it is considered to be hazardous material Is this true or BS? I am wondering how Amsoil dealers ship their oil. Thanks.

    Motul E-Tech 10-40

    Motorbike, The Topic says 'Motul E-Tech 10-40'. Isn't this Motul 8100 E-tech 0W-40? Not 10w-40 If this is Motul E-Tech 0w-40, it is very interesting to see how much this VOA is different from VOA reported by Ferrari. Ferrari's VOA say no moly and half amount of calcium...

    If all auto oils were equal?

    I used a similar stuff called, MotorSilk It is Boron CLS Bond additive like LuBoron. I think LuBoron and MotorSilk are identical since their MSDS data are exactly the same (same stuff in bottles with different labels). I used on my turbo Talon for 2000 miles. Unfortunately, I didn't do UOA...

    If Oil was free, what would you use?

    I am with Pablo on Euro oils. I'd definately love to try out Ester based MOTUL 300 V. The second choice would be Agip . I remember that Agip was the official lubricant supplier for F1 Ferrari Team. I believe when Schumacher joined Ferrari, they switched to Shell to pay his salary. Also I've...

    1999 VW Passat 1.8T best oil to use

    Not only I'd look for ACEA A3 rating, I'd definately look for ACEA A3/B3/ B4 The ACEA B4 performance requires an outstanding detergent/dispersent power and a better viscosity increase resistance. Also I'd look for VW 502.00 / 505.00 / 503.01 and Mercedes Benz 229.3 approval marks. I guess my...
