I can also attest to this and is a BIG REASON I am such a fan of Synth
Oil. A local, reputable offroad shop that does AirCooled VWs carries a
full line of Redline oils. The reason Being: They noticed a 20 DEGREE
TEMP DROP when they went to REDLINE over standard oil. Personally my L6
saw a drop of about 10 degrees when using Redline over standard oil.
