hi oilyman,

I've got a VTS 1.6 16v on 80k, currently standard internal and modified exhaust system.

I currently use Millers XFS 5w-40 on the engine, but if there is something equivalent in terms of protection and cheaper, or better and the same price (or slightly more) I'm willing to pay it to keep the engine tiptop, so please say

Prices inc. delivery would be great.

In summer it'll be running uprated camshafts.
Thanks in advanced for your response!

Plenty of 5w-40 synthetics here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

I would go for either the Motul 8100 Xcess 5w-40 or if you want to go all out the ester based Silkolene Pro S 5w-40.

Cheers

Hi

Saxo - VTS - 1.6
1998

No modifications (will be upgrading the panel filter, but that's it).

Car is used for sprinting - the one I did Sunday involved 6 runs of 40 seconds each. So at speed, but not for long! Will possibly use the car for track days/run what yer brung etc.

Thanks

As I need good performance from cold, and looking through priovious posts, would a good 5W/40 be what I should go for?

Does it matter if I use this for my Saxo:
http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-899-motu...ter-based.aspx

instead of this:
http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-897-motu...osynthese.aspx

or should I use 75w-80.

Also will this be fine for the power steering:
http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-889-motu...g-systems.aspx

I am just in the process or replacing all the fluids in the car.

I use this car for driving everywhere and in the last 7 months ive covered maybe 6000 miles. It is not thrashed but I have had it at speed before. It is also driven in the winter if that helps lol. I would like something that will protect my engine especially at startup of course.

Any information and ideas is greatally appreciated.

Looking to purchase some oil for when the turbo is on the road, whats the best price delivered you could do on 5 litres of:

Valvoline 20w50 fully synthetic

and could you reccomend a cracking quality mk1 vtr oil filter to use?

also what brake fluid to use with brembo 4 pots?

and gear oil to use with a vtr box with quaife lsd?
