EDIT: quick example - see link below on last page. Notice that even a 5w-20 still has better cold start protection than a 0w-30. The number on the right tends to hold fairly true for how oil behaves at hot temperatures, but the number on the left is more of a general guide for what the oil is trying to shoot for so to speak. Further apart, such as 0w-40, means the oil will typically have a better index, which is a good thing.

Fair enough, thanks for that. Still, better cold start protection than a comparable 5w30.

I have never seen my car settle or stay at 180F even for a short period of time. I live in Pennsylvania where climate varies from freezing to 100F on a nasty summer day. I am mostly DD and during the winters my temp holds around 210F once warmed up fully. During the summers, I am seeing 210-220F if I'm babying the car around, and almost always around 230F+ if I am riding highway or pushing it around a bit. In which case, to back up my statement, you said yourself that 5w-30 can become advantageous at 220F+, which I agree with.

I would also FAR rather go with 5w-30 oil rather than spend the money on an oil cooler and deal with the contrary issues of trying to get the oil up to temp (especially in the winter) and any other minor issues that can go along with one, such as leaks from mistakes, etc.
Youíre temps are far higher than mine. I have a oil temp gauge front and center monitoring temps entire time. And run a lot cooler than that even beating the balls out of her.

Hey thanks again
I am swapping to 0w20 last saturday. Car seems very light and engine is not fluttering at idle.
I will try to drive the car everyday to see that i still have a leak or not.
Yeah i might be changing again over 5w30 once the supercharger installed.
I have several option here..
Ams signature 5w30
Motys m100 5w30
I would prefer ams.. what you guys thinking

That may very well be the case, and I am not sure why. But from what I've read on this forum, my temps are nothing out of the ordinary. But of course, you make the judgement based on your conditions as yours definitely vary from mine.

Oil brands have also been discussed repeatedly on this forum. The general consensus is you choose whatever oil brand you like and stay away from any unknown or cheap brands you may be weary of (none that I really know). People have been using just about every kind of oil brand on this car and have loved their own choice.

If you're leaning on those two only, I would say make your judgement based on whatever is cheaper for you. Also as someone else mentioned earlier, it would be nice to check that it is GF-6 vs GF-5 as it has reduced wear and other various benefits if you're looking for the best.

As for gauges, oil pressure would be one of the most beneficial I would say if you're interested in knowing how it various based on your driving style and temperatures. The rest are not necessary and can be viewed through free apps that are out there or something like EcuTek.

I had NA FBO w/ no cooler
NA FBO w/ “oem/ned” cooler
Supercharged w/ “oem/ned” cooler
Supercharged w/ “oem/ned” cooler + oil cooler
Supercharged w/ “oem/ned” cooler + oil cooler + oil cooler fans.

I chose 0w-20 for all variations.

Supercharging doesn’t change engine tolerances. Doesn’t change oil requirements.
