according to redline, the 15W50 is "Not recommended for street use in production engines that see sustained oil temperatures below 225F. Those engines should use Red Line 10W-30 or 10W-40."

considering our shop's supercharged M3 3.2 with 3.0 head/intake rarely gets its oil this hot, i'm using Redline 10W40 in my ormally aspirated 95 with Euro snorkle/airbox/AFM/JC chip.
