- 0.6 miles to 3 miles of sprinting/slalom (3-4 runs - generally 50 seconds to 2 mins long with a 5 minute interval in between)
- 20-50 miles highway back home

Would Millers 5W-40 fit the bill?
Hi,

Yes, Millers CFS or CFS NT+ 5w-40 will be ideal for that.

Cheers

Tim

Hi Mark

Yes, that will be fine to use for topping up.

Cheers

Hi all

Although it's not directly related to oil recommendations, I didn't want to start a new thread about it so here it goes.

Just installed an oil temperature and oil pressure sensor on my evo x.



What should be the proper readings for idle, cruising, fast mountain driving and track?

At what readings should I be concerned?

Thanks!

hi guys

Btw regarding the above, oil is working at around 90C and during a fast mountain drive it goes no higher than 115C. Pressure at idle at those temps is around 1,6-1,7 and 1,5-1,6 respectively.

I just swapped the 300v 5w40 with a Mobil 1 FS 0w40, I will monitor it.

Regarding engine oil has anyone used the engine specific oil HKS makes for the Evo X?



ENGINE SPECIFIC OIL EVO-X (3.5W37)
【EVO-X (3.5W37)】

The best to use for the 4B11 engine on Lancer Evolution X, Galant Fortis Turbo, etc.

HKS' original "HIPER ESTER" can follow extreme boundary lubrication of any kind of engines on the metal absorbed molecular level. The optimized oil viscosity for the 4B11 engine enables the use of this oil under higher load. Airtightness and friction balance of this oil are maintained at high levels.

Hi

I would use a good 5w-40 synthetic.

https://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Out of those, the best ones are the Fuchs/Silkolene Pro S, Millers CFS/CFS NT+, Motul Sport/300V, Red Line and Gulf Competition. The Motul 8100 X-Cess, Millers XF Longlife, Castrol Edge/Magnatec, Fuchs GT1 XTL/Supersyn, Shell Helix and Mobil Super 3000 are good, cheaper alternatives.

Cheers

Tim

Hi,

I have a Evo X FQ300 2008 but is modified to 400bhp. What oil would anyone recommend? It is my daily car & will never be tracked.

Thanks

Hi

Sorry for not getting back sooner, looks like I didn't get the notifications for some reason.

Kieran, a 5w-40 is ideal.
