Heres one for redline oil users.

My Evo6 is due for a oil change and I would like to try readline due to it's good reputation.

My question is which oil do I use. My car is mainly used as a weekend/ trackday car.
So is it a good idea to try a racing oil or would that give problems driving to/from track days.

Looking at what they do I would be tempted to go for SAE 30 (10W30) or SAE 40 (15W40)
Or would their normal oil be Ok, 15W50 or 20W50.

Have used Redline 10w30 in my VI for the last 5000 miles without any problem , no tappet rattle , no smoke , nothing except a perfect running engine. Also use Redline in the whole transmission , again no problem.

The UK importers are Delta Oil Ltd in Grantham ,Lincs , phone 01476 861195 , no website.
They do mail order and their technical guy is v.good.

Have previously read your threads on Redline and was very impressed by their US Website and products.

Shame their UK suppliers don’t have such a comprehensive Website, with prices and suppliers.

I know it is available mail order, but it is always nice to be able to get the product locally.

As a point of interest, what oils are required for the various parts of the EVO and what quantities are required.

Your advice, as always, is appreciated.

See thread Gearbox oil for full info.

The only other outlet I am aware of is Demon Tweeks in Wrexham.

I deal with Delta on a mail order basis with good service , if u order a reasonable amount....say engine and trans oil in one order , u cud persuade them to do carriage free , u wud then receive a nice glossy Redline brochure.
