Has anyone had experience with Agip synthetic oils, I can get Agip Synthetics for $7 Canadian pesos, semis for $5 and mineral stuff $2 (group II according to their web site) just wonder how good they are.
It looks like you get to be our Guinea Pig!
Test it out and send the oil in for analysis when you're done, and we can see how it holds up.
Do you have any technical specs on the oil that we can take a gander at?
About 15 years ago, my neighbour had an aftermarket turbo on his Volvo - 18lbs boost, it really went hard.
He always maintained that GTX was good enough for any turbo, and wasn't a fan of idling down.
Turbo 1 went very quickly, so he started idling down.
Turbo 2 lasted longer, but not to an outstanding degree.
With turbo 3, he bought out the entire stock of Agip SINT 2000 for about $10 per litre even then.
Was supposed to be non-compatible with mineral oil, so I've no idea what it was.
Turbo 3 lasted until he bought a boat, then threw a chev V-8 into the Volvo for better towing.
The Agip oil went 6,000km in the Volvo, then 10,000km in His Datsun.
I have a case of the Agip 5W40 Synthetic PC and have been wanting to do a VOA on it, but two orders to the lab have failed to produce any testing kits.
