vinniekq2 do you know the clearances the engine was built to have? I usually use royal purple or Lucas or other decent oil and I use 10-40 or better ever since I owned a rotary.

I see no use for anything other than 10W30 in a street driver. It's a multi-graded oil that can change characteristics with temp changes.

Babyburr Yeah, you are right, sir! I've been there before. I think 10W-30 should be fine.

techinspector1 You just think it's hot. Hot is in Phoenix. I lived there for 30 years and ran only 10W30 all the time.

After my break in, I'm going to use VR1 Racing oil. Now, here is my question, it gets really, really hot down here. How many of ya think I should use the 20-50 weight, or the 10-30 weight??

Thanks for your thoughts
