    More specifically, does anyone is 0-50w full synthetic in their Countach?
    My last oil change, this oil was recommended.
    My oil temperatures are around 75-80 which is lower temperatures than before and car runs well.
    I did some reading and it sounds like a great, quality oil. I have always used non synthetic because of potential weeping but I have not had any thus far.
    Any thoughts?

    I've used Redline oils for many years, mostly for hard to shift manual transmissions and I am a big fan. I do not always use it because it is a bit hard to find, but I do think it is a high quality product. I would not hesitate to use it on my Countach and in fact if you are really seeing lower temperatures, I think I will give it a try next oil change. Which one did you use?

    i feel like i answered this but maybe it was another thread. if you apply logic to what the numbers mean, you want a synthetic with as small as a cold number as possible, and as large of warm number as possible, so 0w50 shld be perfectly fine.
    i dont think you wld want a 50 weight in a 120 hp nissan sentra fwiw.
