Its oil change time again but I'm honestly not looking to bring up the old 5w40 v 10w60 debate as there is plenty of info on here for everyone to make up their mind.

I've been using the 10w60 but thinking I might try the 5w40 this time, albeit I haven't had any issues with the 10w60

In terms of the 5w40 the Fuchs brand seems to be the most popular but what I'm interested in is the difference between the Titan Race Pro S and the Titan SuperSyn. Is it too simplistic to say that the Race is geared more towards track usage?

Also, for everyone using this grade and brand which one are you using? From my last post in this thread asking the question I think one was using the Race Pro S and other SuperSyn.

Cheers

I used Pro S and it seemed fine......although as with many oil issues things always seem fine until it's too late (!)

Problem with the Castrol 10W60 is the silted, for example.

A guy here in germany which repairs vanos and make engines race stable told me to use the agip 10w60 racing.

Wired...

What do you mean by silted?

10/60 Castrol is fine IMO - as with any oil, regular changes - regardless of mileage - are key to engine cleanliness and longeivity.

Not my car, but for example

It was on a steady diet of Castrol Edge 10w-60 . 4-5K mile OCI. Driven rather hard. After 11K miles (that's the engine's total mileage), it looks like this:

There is something very wrong there. Have driven my car, always using Castrol edge 10/60, for over 200K miles and its as clean as anything internally.
