Ahhh a discussion as old as time

I've used 8100 XCESS on multiple FI cars with good results via Blackstone.

Reality is there's a lot of quality oils out there. The interval is so much more important. Swap it every 2.5-5k miles and you'll be in good shape

There was a post/video going around, was it Forced Performance? About how most oils are actually trash due to emissions standards or something like that.

Rotella t6 till I'm stupid rich!

I'm a huge advocate of a strong zddp package! The zinc and phosphorus levels you get out of t6 rival some of the best race oils! For half the price or more!

Some will argue for sure! But for a meth or alkyd car that your dumping oil out the drain plug every 2-3k I just can't justify expensive race oils!

Tons of racers domestic and foreign have been using Rotella for decades.. Because it works!!!!

It's not magical but it's a Good group III and tests very well, I have been using it for years. Others haven't tested as well, such as RP, Castrol GC, etc.

For race application motul 300v but it's not for daily use.

Most are good for daily depending on conditions the care is driven in.

Change it often and you will be fine
