The specs for Castrol's 'real synthetic' Formula R 0W40 are interesting. cSt @ 100C 12.9, @40C 73.6, CCS @ 35C 5,200, HTHS 3.6, Pour point -54C, TBN 10.3. A3/B3/B4, MB 229.3, BMW Longlife, Porsche, Rolls Royce, VW 502.00, 503.01, 505.00 and get this Team Toyota Europe. I'd bet this would be a killer LS1 oil. 12.9cSt is the lowest 40W I've seen and great for those in NA who panic when they see 40W on anything. How long before this appears on shelves in NA I wonder??
