guys,which engine oil 2 b used for gtt?and what is the suitable viscousity?
Engine oil... 5W40
here we go again
Please refer to above sticky tread: Maintaining a Skyline (how to?) by tread starter: Supremus
Mobil Jet Oil II
Engine Oil -apexi N1 Oil 5W-50 Or Blitz S3 20w-50
L.S.D/GearBox -Kaaz 80w-90
trust me when I say, dont use this oil if your engine is stock... the viscosity is too thick, you can actually lose some power... high powered race built engines that undergo long periods of high revs could probably benefit from this kind of viscosity, but not a daily driven car
and ajidsky, before you give advice, you might want to do some research first..
i thnk seldom ppl use 20W.
for Malaysia weather, i recommend 10W50,if newer GTT stick to 5W.
thanx again guys!sorry for the trouble! =)
it's okey.. but i used blitz oil now.. i think ok..so, what u recommend??
5W-40 is my preferred choice daily driver and weekend blast. No trackdays.
i drive my car everday...
by the way, what engine oil temp are you guys running on your rb26??
i'm getting 100-105 at normal, but around 120 under heavy driving.
on track, may even go up to 125...
i dont have an oil cooler, maybe thats the reason??
85 to 100 normal driving, went to max 110 when pushing it.
depends on what oil you are using too, ester based oils (motul) give me lower peak temperature
i use petronas full syn 15w50 now and peak without oil cooler was 105, with oil cooler peak now is high 90's
120 is very bad for your engine...Nissan recommends engine bearings to be changed if your oil reaches 120..... ouch
if i were you, back off the throttle when it passes 100 (which doesnt take too long to reach) until you pasang oil cooler.... what to do....
For engine I use Motul 300V Le Mans 20w60 every 3,000kms
For gearbox I use Motul Gear Competition 75w140 every 15,000kms or so
Does not mean it'll work for you though. We don't all have the same setups.
No $shit Sherlock. Search function kan ada.

Dude, oil cooler pronto. I have twin Blitz oil coolers I may sell if you're interested. Your oil temp will never go near 100 ever again.
300v Le Mans 20w60 every 3k??..wah, can pass me ur used oil ah?...just joking..hehehe
Its really not that big a deal because every 3k kms works out to 2-3 times a year based on my use. Thats not terribly expensive for a GTR I reckon.
how much u spend on dat engine oil for every oil change?..rm400++ for a bottle of 4l, u gonna need 1.5bottle, so dat will be rm700++?
I had a feeling 120 was pretty high..
sigh.. time to shop for oil coolers, i guess.
if anyone here has one or knows where to get one, please pm me.. thanks
