    Ya, so far so good. I was lucky, got this engine from a halfcut shop with only 67,000km on the odometer two years ago :biggrin:

    I'm not really picky about engine oil, as long as the viscosity is 5W40 full synthetic and it's sold by reputable shop or supermarket like Tesco. Too many reused/fake oil flooding the market right now. :mad:

    I agree. If for normal use, a branded FS with scheduled OCI is good enough......:driver:

    The year is 2016... make sure you choose something semi-synthetic at the very least.. engine oil has come a long way.. Motul is pretty reputable. Long distance trips with smooth traffic is actually the least strenuous on the engine.

    im pretty sure that half million kilometer is not my current engine,could be the original engine before i installed current engine 2 years back..lol. The meter didnt reset even after engine changed. Well,this car is 20-years old this year.
    BUT
    Kinda happy with this engine's performance even its old too (dc2 halfcut)..run like a champ,just like youngster lol.

    Work in JB can browse the prices in SG, but with the exchange so high, probably not worth also.....
