: I have been using 20-50 castrol oil in my '02 for years. Some one recently told me that I should be using 10-40? I think he's yanking my crank. Any comments? I think the '02 motor could make piss water out of any 10w-40 oil.

From a drag racing perspective, 20/50 is good on the street but you can trash the catrol crap.... You need to do your research on ouyr oils before you swear by one. An oil named TORCO is the only oil left on the market that is not synthetic and can handle high RPM. With the high RPM that you run this piles at, you need an oil the won't break down with heat. I personally run a straight 50w torco and have never had a lubrication failure due to oil construction.
If you can't find the oil, e-mail me and I'll hook you up. [email protected]
