Oil viscosity and additives

(1/1)

Sirdeuce:
Moly, HP additives, Lucas, teflon, X90, Any of these things you have used? Raising or lowering gear oil vis for a race? Engine oil viscosity, how far would you go? Do you think we could get by with a 5w-20 synthetic for the duration? 0w20? 0w15? Or do we play it safe since we really don't know much about the engine? I know teflon is a joke. The additive X90(I think that was what it was called[snake oil maybe]) seemed promising. What have you heard of or used?

Sirdeuce:
Anybody have expeience with, or knows anyone that has experience with PX3 oil additives? Might be a consideration for the Poupe'.

BigMike:
Nope. Have you heard of MaxiLube? We are a distributor for it and apparently, you know, "it's the best" :ha_ha:

BigMike:
Here is the website: http://www.maxilube.com

I've used it before in my MR2 and I plan on using it with my 6spd also (when I flush it next week). I don't know how it compares to other products but I buy it just to support Marlin and Tony's Automotive (that is where we sell it, through Tony at the other shop).

Sirdeuce:
If it actually reduces friction and increases laod capability of the oil then it's worth it.
