To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.

What do you mean by that? Once you use dyno you can't go back to syntec? eek

Use 5w30 weight. Go syntec if you can. Using a higher weight is only useful for cars with:

1) leaks from gaskets
2) Turbo'd vehicles

For our cars it will most likely slow your acceleration and cut back on your gas mileage. smile

Royal Purple. Oil pressure is an essential element to our car's Performance, so might as well get the best you can thumbsup
