Between those two, I would run the Amsoil.

I'm being told Motul 300V is the only way to go. Something to do with category 5 compared to cat. 4 that Mobil 1 is. I plan on making the switch on the next change.

People need to do/post Blackstone test results www.Blackstone-labs.com

Im about to send in a M1 5w30 sample to see if there is a need to waste money on higher priced oils.

I don't see any big deal with oil as long as its a quality oil and you change it regularly. Put in Mobil1 and be happy.

I was happy with the service from blackstone and the results I got a year ago.
I've always ran 5w30 M1

How much do you have to send them and what's the cost?

They'll send you a small container for the oil sample for free.

You send it back with I believe $25

I'm right here. Running 15W-40 Redline and loving it. Shane @ Thunder Racing and I had a big laugh about the responses that the diesel oil recommendation got. Bottom line: of you can't be bothered to do the research, you don't deserve the benefit.

Did you even bother to click on their site?

Click site above. Click Free sample kit. Follow the directions. $25 for standard test. +$10 for additive test (TBN) if you care about extended drains.

I used that (M1 5w40 TDT) in my '01.5 Audi A4 1.8 Turbo with a big turbo kit on it. Of course, its recommended to use a 5w40 Euro oil anyway when stock.
