if you want REALLY good oil, get Motul or something. there's also nothing wrong with any good synthetic motor oil, as long as you change it often enough and it's the correct weight. Mobil1 10w-30 is fine and cheaper than Motul/Amsoil/Redline/Royal Purple...

i wouldn't even bother with Apex'i or HKS oil, seems just like a ploy to extract money from your wallet. :)

JDM dinasaurs were smaller so it takes more to make oil, hence the price difference.. hhehehe j/k

As long as its a good brand, the important thing is to use the proper oil weight.

When your car runs off four or more bowls of rice, and you want that extra smooth slide in your engine. Be sure to pick up JDM KIKOMAN soy oil. Not only does it protect your rice but it tastes great too.:lol:

the only reason id ever buy any of that oil (and i dont know if the apex or hks is like this) but the greddy/trust comes in metal can and itd be cool to have on the wall of the garage for looks only, but i doubt id actually pay the amount they want, who knows, i gotta get a job first

think about it though, mobil and castrol and such have been making oil for decades...a lot of these companies have been around for like maybe 25 30 years max..and they arent strictly in th oil business. just get a brand whos been doing oil all the time. Mobile is good but I use regular castrol GTX 10W40
