Here is a question for everyone... and I know everyone has an opinion on it, so lets hear it. What oil do you prefer, and what do you think is best? Given most manufactures have a recommended weight... Synthetic or not? What about switching back and fourth? ....... Personally I'm a fan of the Royal Purple line of products.

On second thought, I have Mobil 1 in the tranny of the 93MR2 and Red line MTL in the tranny of the 89 SC.

I have always been a castrol GTX synthetic guy.. but thats honestly probably because thats what my dad, and my wife's dad have always ran in their rides.

penn. synthetic and it runs about $90 to change the oil- synthetic is all that your supposed to run in my car- i don't think it makes a big difference if the oil is changed regularly though- but im not a fan of mixing it either- i like to use the same thing over and over if it works- same with cleaning suplies etc.

I have only used two bands in the past. I only use Pennzoil in my Hondas. My old Fiero GT used Castrol GTX. Hadn't have any problems what so ever.
