I will check the jug, bu I think that is where it's stated. If you are getting that the cold, I would honestly suggest using the European grade (read: not US-grade) Mobil 1 5w30 or something like Castrol GTX. The issue here is shearability, for the lack of a better made up word. It's commonly said that the EJ205 shears US-grade 5w30 down to 5w20 - but the European grade Mobil 1 is more stable.

Rotella T6 is just so great because of the stability, additives, and detergents - for the price it's hard to beat.

Looks like they spec down to -30║F.

Shell Rotella« T6 provides extra protection against breakdown by heat and offers up to 70% better oxidation resistance, compared to conventional Shell Rotella« T3 15W-40 API CJ-4 oil. Shell Rotella« T6 5W-40 provides excellent low-temperature flow, even at -30║F. MAINTENANCE SAVINGS

Yeah, I've been running Amsoil 0w30 and its been great; before that was using GTX and wasn't as satisfied, as it would be so thin when I drained it.. Tho I'm about to cross 150k on the odometer and would like more protection. Something like what Rotella offers. And if its good in cold temps then I'll try it out! Will definitely run it this summer, however.

Yeah, I've seen that. Though I wonder if anyone has experience with it at colder temps. And does comparing viscosity or 'pourability' really justify whether an oil is good for cold temps or does it more depend on shear?

So I ended up breaking on of my JDM headlight shrouds, and I have been looking for a Passenger side Black Chrome shroud to replace my matte ones however I've been throwing around the idea of painting the shrouds WRB or today I came up with the idea of using the 3M Carbon Film I'm thinking that will look really good no one has done anything with the JDM shrouds that I have seen. I might have to take a picture and photo shop it I suppose.

I just need the shroud no need to pay for the entire headlight silly. I guess I could message him if he would want to swap the shrouds out.

But I actually want to do the film overlay I think it will go well just wondering peoples opinion on it.

Dividing the topic again but back to the GTX v. T6. Is it bad to cycle the oil from oil change to oil change? I've always wondered. Say oil A has this awesome additive but oil B has this other awesome additive. Is it really bad to cycle the oils for the verity of additives? Mixing wise if the viscosity is the same I wouldn't think it'd be a problem?

The t6 is great because it is zinc rich, a lot of people think that it helps prevent bearing failure. GTX is good oil, but I wouldn't run it over t6.

Yep, I have been running T6 in my Turbo Subaru's for about 6 years. It is without a doubt the shiznit.

I was looking at the pictures my buddy took out front of his 1920's home of my car and noticed something weird in the carbon side marker delete. I zoom in and see a creepy image that looks like a ghost face & body, but nobody else was there. I told him I am not meeting at his house anymore on skatepark night. lol

LOL I'm just busting balls Cool fish eye shot btw. I get ticked watching all those shows that have sprung up as a late where everythings a UFO, ghost, Bigfoot or the easter bunny. They take no time to actually investigate and they just go on vauge info to back up thier BS. It really is the dumbing down of our society.

Yes indeed. Any new updates on Orange Julius? Are you going with a wider wheel or running spacers on the current wheels?
