I have a Honda Civic type r from 2016. this is a direct injection turbo . Honda recommends ACEA A3/ /A5
0w20/0w30,5w30

I have now 360 bhp and 525nm of torque. ( Stock ist 306 bhp /400nm )
Which engine oils would you prefer ? Amsoil ,Motul or mobil or anything else? Thanks a lot for your opinions.

Wait, Honda had a Civic Type R in 2016? Where has the time gone?? I feel like it was just released a couple years ago!!!

Would you be against using something like any of the name brands you listed in the 5W40 flavor? You are asking alot from that little motor esp being turbo and making more HP and TQ then stock...

If not then a "thick" 5W30 i would run that meet specs.. I dont think i would touch a 0W20..

This is just my opinion, im sure other will chime in soon.

I would use M1 FS 0w-40. But many would not recommend to use it in a direct injected turbo due to the ash levels. But seems to work good anyway since Honda dealer using this oil in Finland. Includes the 1.5 and the type r

Really? Most of people would not use 0w40 Mobil fs, because it is full saps. But my car can use full saps engine oil , but I do not know how it is with the valves and sulfated ash. Manthey Racing used only Mobil 1 0w40 always in the 24h of Nurburgring and spa. What thinking the other people?

Please noticed the correct Mobil 1 ( fs or exp ) . Some user in forums would only use mid saps engine oils.
Thanks

I'd vote for mid SAPS 5W-30/0W-40/5W-40 with VW 511 00 and/or Porsche C40 or BMW LL-04
and/or MB 229.51 at least. M1 X3 0W-40 0W-40, M1 ESP 5W-30, Ravenol RUP 5W-40, REP 5W-30
and similar.
That said power is huge for this engine and even more so 525 Nm is excessive for this gearbox,
perhaps too much for it. I'd suggest doing a gear oil change to remove contaminants if haven't
done that so far.
Where are you from? Oil choice depends on market, even more so prices. Europe is different to
US/Canada or OZ/NZ.

I am from Germany. We have no speed limit. And sometimes I drive on the nordschleife. I only use by all cars of me Mobil 1 new life and Mobil 1 fs 0w40. No problems !

Good old autobahn. Out of curiosity, do you guys have a lot of fatalities/crashes on it? Are the roads very well maintained for those speeds? All I have to go off of are internet videos.

Significantly less accidents on the Autobahn statistically, however not exactly well maintained. Got much worse since 1990 and even more so since Merkel. Elevated speeds of 250 or even 300 km/h (155/186 mph) are still feasible, only when traffic allows though, and remember these speeds aren't permitted everywhere. Internet videos don't do justice. Most people just do 70-100 mph. Even though there are unlimited sections the "suggested" speed is 130 km/h (81 mph).

Today I have installed my Wagner intercooler and I have changed the engine oil ( 7 litres) with Mobil 1 fs 0w40. If I had time I would tell you my impressions of that.
