Just got my oil changed yesterday with some of this 0w50 eneos oil autolab has been selling recently and I can honestly say this is the only time I have ever noticed a difference in oil... The engine seems to run smoother and quieter and what is most amazing, and a definite difference, is that I have not heard Mitsubishi's famous valve tick on cold starts ever since I started using this oil. Not saying that it prevents it on all cars, but on mine it helped tremendously.

Thanks Autolab!

Bill, I know we talked about the weights you carry briefly when I dropped in the other day. 5W-30 is what the manual calls for. What weight would you recommend and if it is other than the factory fill weight, what benefit would that provide?

"It is about the same price as Mobil 1 and is sold in a 6qt 'case' with prices starting roughly around $45."

Id probly pick some up if they made in 10w30
they make a 10w30 but for all out performance applications its recommended to use their 0w50. It is just about the only grade we are going to move a lot of. Their 5w40 is what I would recommend for the Euro cars, except when turbocharged then we do 0w50. Everything else will do excellent with the 0w50, its their premier oil.

A 6qt case is $72+tax

Wouldnt a 0w oil just burn off a little too fast in a car that burns oil a little bit, my car was burning dino 10w30, and I switched to synthetic and havent had the issue so much, it burns a small small bit, but im afraid 0w wont last long in there

yes 0w50 for the STi too.

travis, the 0w50 if anything would be an even better choice if your engine was consuming 10w30.

How is this, I always heard running 0w oils in high mileage cars is a big no no, the more worn the engine gets, the more heavier oil it needs to lube properly because of increased clearance in the crankcase from wear and tear, so a 0w oil would burn away fast

Sorry if i sound like a noob, I dont know cars too well :(

Cant edit my last post, im an idiot, but 0w50 is thicker than 10w30 , DOH.

I got mixed up, Wouldnt 0w50 slaughter your gas mileage though, with the engine having to crank through all that thick as hell oil?

first number is the thickness of oil cold, second number is thickness of oil warmed up. The lower the number the thicker.
