Hey Guys,
anybody tried Castrol synthetic? I see alot of Mobil 1 users, Royal Purple, and Pennzoil, but no Castrol.

Thanks,

BIG no no on the RP oil. the vq35de's loved it. the HR's not so much. I have tried it and I swear the 370 felt like a slug afterwards. i changed to to redline and have not been happier. Although from now on it's strictly Nissan Ester oil, just for warranty sake.

False claims, false advertising! Royal Purple got **** slapped with the truth!

I tried out the Castrol Edge and didn't have any performance issues. It survived a few trips to 260F without issue (no charring or darkening of the oil). Didn't get to do an oil analysis unfortunately.
