Ours are fully imported from Japan, I'm very sure they only have one production line back in the Japan factory. It wouldn't make economic sense any other way. Plus just look at the parts numbers, same number = same engine.Love seeing information like this. There are pundits that will argue "we get a different engine in the US" though 😂

For me, SynPower 0W20 and 5W40 are the same price, at the same store.At SCA in Australia, 3rd to 13th November.
