Default What engine oil do you JDM-swappers use?

I did a search, but didn't come up with enough opinions and preferences.... so far the recomendation was using 10Wxx

NEO Synthetic 10W-30 all year round. Definitely noticeable difference in fuel economy and engine smoothness. Same oil that the JUN GDB Impreza and some JGTC teams use in Japan.

Regards,
Gary
