Which model is it? Is it stock and what's it used for?

Cheers
Simon

A decent 5w-40 synthetic would be my recommendation then.

Cheers

Ok guys, I have just bought my skyline R33 GTR about a month ago, it has an oil change using Royal Purple 0w 30 about 2 weeks before I got it (have the receipts to prove) and the oil was still clean when I picked the car up.

However I have a fresh can of Silkolene Pro S 15w 50 that I bought at totb last year for my old STi, but I sold the car about 3 days later so never opened it.

Can I use this oil in my R33 GTR ? The car is stage 1, runs an oil cooler and oil filter relocation kit.

Any help here would be great, as I really don't wanna throw away £35's worth of un opened oil.

Oh and how much oil does the RB26 take ?

Yep you can use it no problem, personally I would not using a 0w-30 in a GTR.

5ltr will do you an oil change.

Cheers

Simon.

Yes i had this discussion with a mechanic friend of mine, he said that fully synthetic 0w 30 would burn off to quickly in my R32 engine, was he right?

Yes you would probably go through it at a fair rate.

Cheers

are the nissan oil filters ok to use?

The car is used everyday so would anyone recommend using the 10-50 instead? (stage 1 tuned)

One for Simon.....
How do you rate the new Mobil1 extended performance range of oils?? Specifically the 15-50? I'm more than likely run Silkolene 15-50 as I've used it in the past (and loved the smell ) but was wondering what you had to say on the subject.

Cheers,
TT

I can supply whatever you like http://www.opieoils.co.uk

Would recommend 10w-50 over 10w-60 though and if the car is an unmodded road car then 5w-40

Regards
Simon

They are good oils and better than most but changing from the Silkolene would be a step down in my opinion.

Cheers

Cheers for that Simon. Think I'll stick with Silkolene then

Me too! lol

I will be doing a lot of motorway miles when I finally get the car, it's an R32 2.0 GTST. I see Silkolene 15w 50 being recommended a lot here, and what about changing at 9,000 - 12,000 miles? Have I understood correctly?

Excellent thread BTW

Graham

The Pro R 15w-50 or the Pro S 10w-50 from Silkolene are ideal.

Cheers

Simon.
