Hi, I think you want Redline. If you want to stick with Mobil 1, 0W-40 or 15W-50 would be your best choices for heavily modified engines. [Cheers!] Jae

Amsoil 0w-30 would be my pick. A 50 weight oil is too heavy IMO for that engine. A well built synthetic in the 30wt visc range would be fine. Amsoil's 0w-30 has a HT/HS of 3.5. It's also a heavier 30wt @ 11.3 cSt. If your going the Mobil 1 route, stick with 10w-30 or 0w-40. Redline 5w-30 is an excellent choice too. [ May 10, 2003, 07:48 AM: Message edited by: buster ]

I agree with buster. And as he said the Amsoil is thicker than the Mobil 1 . I haven-t yet bought into all the Redline hype yet for street use but if I were tracking a car I'd probably have to go with it. Another option which would be for very few people and won't be highly recommended by oil experts would be to go with a 25% mixture of Mobil 1 15W-50 with 10W-30 (M1). [Welcome!]

Good point Al, a mixing is another option. I also havn't seen enough Redline UOA to really recommend it yet. On paper it looks great though. [Cheers!] [ May 10, 2003, 09:48 AM: Message edited by: buster ]

Stay away from 5W30 non-synthetic oil!!!! Most Neons run on the 5W30 Dino oil at 3000 mile intervals tend to smoke alot buy 100,000 miles. Non-synthetic oil Schaffers, LE,Delvac, Cempeco.Synthetic brands I like Redline,Amsoil, NEO(570) and M1.

Look at "drstressor's" posting in http://theoildrop.server101.com/ubb/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=002192 When you mix viscosities, you probably do not end up with what you expect...you certainly do not end up with the viscosity the average of what you mixed. Ken
