I was looking at a Australian website for viscosity recommended for the Honda S2000 " 10w-30 btw - 10w-30 for some newer Toyotas as well " and found the 1R uses Molybdenum Polysulfide Alkyl Dithiocarbamate in the formulation . This a a different moly than I've seen or is the name just in a full listing here ? Could this be the same moly used in the Supersyn ? Pennzoil does not use MoDTC I'm led to believe so.... how many moly's are out there in use ? I'm thinking now the newer and reportedly darker Havoline uses the same moly as Pennzoil . Can someone set all this straight ?

Nope, same thing as MoDTC. Some MoDTC's use different sarting materials. All they're saying is that this MoDTC starts with a MoS5, a moly penta sulfide most likely. [ March 09, 2004, 04:14 PM: Message edited by: MolaKule ]

Where did you hear this? It would make sense that Havline and Pennzoil use the same additives. I believe Johnny (Pennzoil guy) told use that pennz uses an Oronite (sp?) additive package.
