on the motor?

You might want to think twice about using castro
GTX. I thought the world of that oil and so
did a group of my friends.

After removing my oil pan, I noticed a brown
coating all over my engine. Others have
discovered the same thing.

Check out the "M3RodBearings" section by following

What do you use, thicker oil for less noise maybe?
