flow characteristics m'man, flow characteristics.

sheeeeet, that 15w50 poop is/was darn near too thick for the VW VR6 i used
to have. our turbos need oil quickly, on start up, and while running cold.
am i wrong here guys?

most manufactuers have seasonal oil recommendations, no? winter lighter,
summer heavier, right? now, why is that? it's not because operating temps
once warmed vary that much. it's because cold start, and cold running temps
are different.


so my point is, different grades flow differently. and these different
grades are requied for different operating conditions.

based upon all of the above, as well as the manufaturers recommendation, and
common sense, 0w30 (or at the most 5w30) is the smart pick.

Use what you want, but use it at your own risk.
