Your car came with JDM oil.

What is your question? What type of oil do they use in Japan?

Sorry, I'm at work and kinda busy. My question is what type of oil are people with JDM engines using? What brand, type, weight, since I do not have an owners manual and there is all kinds of contriversy around what is the best. Does that help clearify things?
