With an older engine the water jacket ain't what it used to be...so the temps in the cylinders "may" getting a little hotter - so the synthetic will give you a bit more protection... if it's over kill on the spend...it's cheap insurance...plus it's a really cool blue color.

I would stay away from any motor honey like STP - even if it has ZDDP. I do put in Hyperlube...it was designed to be used in C&C machines for lubrication. Third party tests show it ain't snake oil... Thanks 03geetee for that find.

ok... I'm done pontificating...about oil..


He speaks the troooooof! I use this with Rotella 15w/40 and my dinosaur still roars.
