I forgot to mention that I've been using Maxlife blend, not the full synthetic, which isn't available here. Would there be any advantage to using Valvoline Synpower, or Supertech full synthetic? Both of these are not much more expensive than the Ma

If you look in the VOA section, some kind soul has just posted up an analysis of Walmart Supertech Synthetic 5W30. I'm not sure why but the analysis includes a KO30 shear result. It shows the KV100 of the oil shearing down from 11.02 cst to 8.85 cst.

Pick any namebrand oil 5-30 and use it. It doesn't need to be dexos unless you want some of your money going into GMs deep pockets. You are making this harder than it needs to be.
