Default 2001 modified bugeye oil


I've recently bought an old bugeye with the following upgrades.

Sti pink injectors.
Bigger turbo
Front mount intercooler
Dump valve
Uprated clutch.

Running around 350bhp. On 74k. I'm using the car at weekends. Letting it warm up for a minute. And cool down for a minute or 2 when done. But on occasion the misses has the polo I could have to dot about town in the scooby

What oil should I be using? Cheers

I use a fully synthetic millers oil, without going down into the garage to check I cant quite remember the velocity.
However give Opi Oils a call they are always helpful and do some good deals i get sent via email from time to time

more top do with how its used / abused IMO rather than mods.............

generally a good quality 5w40 ofr 'normal use' but if more aggressive then look at more track use oils like 10w50 / 10w60, etc.........
