Do we know if the gold bottle contains MORE titanium than the less expensive black bottle?

I wouldn't run 5W30 anything in your application unless it has an HTHS of 3.5 or higher, not matter what additives are in it. Did you switch from 5W50 to 5W30?

Sweet car Las. I miss my '02 WRX wagon. I agree with bluesubie...

For me, it would be (Belgian) Castrol Edge 0w30 or (German) Castrol Edge 0w40.

Brutal...5w30 for track use...and with a turbo.. I am hesitate to use it even for spirited street driving on a hot day with an NA engine.

Switch that oil out and get something with an HTHS of 3.5 of higher like a few people have mentioned.

From what castrol has told me. The U.S. Castrol I was emailing said they cannot speak of castrol products sold outside of the U.S. Which is the gold bottle featuring fst pictured above. They did however say the edge extended performance has higher titanium then the regular black edge bottle.

I'd run Edge 5W50 for your track days if you're an Edge fan. But,I wonder if the "Classic Car" formula 5W50 was a better oil than the "Titanium" formula? Wonder if the zddp level got lowered since they no longer market it towards "classic cars"?
