I've decided to post some types of motor oils that are recommended by manufacturers for their highest performance level cars or oil manufacturers who are stating their oil is suitable for those cars. Its just for your enjoyment so don't bother harping on me if I didn't phrase everything correctly. Its just a sampling of the oils. Not stating that it has to be THIS oil, but you are welcome to post what you would use in each case. I'll do it in individual posts so it doesn't get too muddled up. By the way, if you respond to any particular post you can delete the sheet of specs if you want to keep posts minimal. Enjoy.

Firstly, the Dodge Challenger Hellcat and all SRT Cars

Believe me, I’m not much of a thickie. Interesting that FCA and Chevy went for a wide spread 0w40, Ford ramped it up to a 5w50 and of course the Europeans racked it up ( not surprising ) to a 10w60. Also, there is not a single 15wX in the bunch. smile

It's important to note the Corvette oil is not 0w40 FS, it is 0w40 ESP.

Compared to other 0W40, including Pennzoil 0W40 ACEA A3/B3 B4, this is mediocre.

Nissan approves M1 FS 0W-40 in the GT-R, while Lexus recommends the 5W-50 version for the LFA. XOM dropped the Lexus mention, but I'm sure when an LFA rolls into a dealer's service bay there's a few gallons of it waiting.

I wonder why no 0w-20 oils.
Because they know the motor will not live.

Whatever they use in NASCAR must be decent.
