In EXACTLY one month my y8 is getting built... now I am gonna break it in with conventional oil for sure.... but my next question is what synthetic should I run? I am currently running mobil-1 10W30 full synthetic and it works really good... but what about royal purple...? I keep hearing more and more good things about this as well? what do u guys think??

my brother is a amsoil rep, and i always liked amsoil, its probably as good as royal purple, however i once saw a test done where royal purple not only came out the winner and had less of a scar on the metal, but it actually started to polish and smooth the scars surface.

I've used Schaeffer's Oils for years on all kinds of race engines. Had extremely good luck with it. It's the only oil I've seen that after tear down on a race motor that ran out of coolant for 4 miles finished race and every bearing was like new. All the cylinder scored but no bearing damage, sold me.

Why would you pay the markup from Honda for the exact same oil you get at WalMart. Mobil 1 is Mobil 1 no matter what store you get it from

Anyway, I use Mobil 7500 synthetic blend, and either the standard A02 Honda filter, or a SuperTech
