Vq35de oil for engine that will be thrashed #4586982

After driving the ranger I posted about and deciding it won't work, I have the option to buy a 2004 g35 sedan with the 6 speed for stupid cheap.

I previously owned one of these with the same exact engine but it was an 04 coupe 6mt. I put a vortech v3 supercharger on that and made 450whp but I no longer have the car. I ran 10w30 and it was fine but I was always easy on the car.

This sedan will be a drift car. It will get a 2 way LSD, coilovers, sticky rubber up front, hydro hand brake, and angle kit. I already have some parts for this car and I know the chassis well. The aftermarket is also huge for this car because it is mechanically identical to the 350z so thats a plus. engine will remain stock for the 2018 season assuming it makes it that long.

What oil should I run to avoid spinning a bearing, which these engines are known to do? It will spend lots of time at the limiter. I want to make this motor last to the end of the 2018 grassroots season before I swap it.

Thanks!

Castrol or M1 0w40

The M1 15w-50 is also stout. Straight 40 is another option

The VQ's do seem to like a 10W30:

I'd seriously consider the 0w-40. Porsche A40 AECA A3/B4. Lots of anti-wear additives

I'm not worried about wear. I'm worried about spinning a bearing.

I'd rather wear the motor the [censored] out and have it make it one season before the swap than have it spin a bearing on the second event.

After that ignorant statement I suggest you read about the causes of spun bearing.

http://www.enginebuildermag.com/2017/03/engine-bearing-technology-spin-spun-bearings/

Anti wear packages come into play when the oil film allows metal to metal contact.... by providing boundary lubrication.

Good luck

Castrol, Mobil, or Pennzoil 0W-40 ought to do the trick. All available at WM.

4 quarts of Mobil1 15w-50, and remaining capacity in Mobil1 0w-40. I'd also overfill by half a quart considering the upcoming abuse and near-redline duty cycle.

Excellent info there. Thanks. Dunno if calling me ignorant was necessary. Always interested in learning.

I wouldnt consider 0W-40 thick racing oil by any means. Its barely in the 40-grade. I believe Mobil is the thinnest one... almost a 30 weight.

M1 0w-40 is a good strong oil for performance applications. Porsche A40 is a strong spec
