    Personally wouldn't use heavier than a 30 weight when it's cold..

    I figure the starting viscosity is what matters when cold, all oil will be pretty much the same when the engine is warmed up.

    when the engine starts up your oil will be too thick.

    The first number is what matters for its cold properties, not the second one. The 30 refers to its hot properties. Are you having a brain fart? You already know this Borque...

One of the coolest thing I saw a group do was in the my350z forum where literally about 50 members sent their used oil to Blackstone to have it analyzed.
    Results? Castrol Syntec was the best oil for the Nissan engine. This was after over 200 reports and due to the metals in the engine and wear and tear from old engines to new, Castrol was deemed the best with Mobil 1 one of most to burn the most.
    It would be great to have a sticky thread of people submitting their reports on the oil analyzed.

    Just my 2 cents.
    I like this idea. Would be nice to find a few guys for each brand to have the oil sample sent off and then posted. But then I guess you'd have to do by year by car etc. still would be cool

    only difference is the 2.0 vs 2.5 the STi 2.5 uses some different stuff so I guess you could classify those differently

    Yes that is a great idea. Then we can see the properties per car per motor per oil

    I think it could be really handy
