if you've been using mobil 1 synthetic for a good while I'd stick with that... if you've used dino oil for 100k miles, and you switched to synthetic last oil change, it really shouldn't make much difference

Well I bought the car from someone else I'm not sure what they were using, but I got it and it was time to be changed. So I changed it to synthetic, but I'm wondering is that okay since the blower causes increased pressure in there, is the synthetic alright? Or does it even matter?

synthetic is just fine, high quality oils are also fine, but steer clear of no name oils..

Actually you are much better off with synthetic oil for one reason higher pressures mean higher temp and Synthetic does not break down do to heat like conventional motor oil. Jets have been using synthetic since the beginning. Turbine engines spinning at 30,000 to 40,000 rpm oil sees much higher temps and pressures than a car every would. So keep using Synthetic oil and be secure in knowing it is the best for high performance cars!!!

You'd be well advised to listen to Corey. I don't think there is much he doesn't know about vehicles or airplanes.

Mobil One is good but I use Castrol. Honestly Mobil One was the first on the market years ago but in reality all synthetics are about the same. I was actually involved in test a few years ago as a analyst to look at the leading synthetics and if there were differences. The Facts are any synthetic is better than the best regular product out there. Another thing all those additives you see for oil is worthless for synthetic which already have the viscosity advantages and thermal protections any additive may have.

So in a nutshell go to Walmart or anywhere and shop and compare. Whether it is Mobil One, Castrol, Havoline, Valvoline, Pennzoil, Amsoil, Royal Purple any of the synthetics will serve you good!!!

Oh by the way I intentionally left out Quaker State and for a good reason They have always sucked. Back in the 70's to get the viscosity up in there product (Cheap *** oil) they would add wax to the oil which gummed up in the engine like someone poured a bucket of sludge in your engine !!!!

Probably because no one does any research, sites like this are my research. Especially when you got some one like danger dude on here.

Corey forgot more than most of these guys put together know now. LOLOLOL. Some of us around here do know our stuff .... a lot of them learned a lot from being on here too.

I second that on engine oils as well as synthetics. They all must meet standards set by the Society of Automotive Engineers, all must meet or beat those standards. I use Havoline Synthetic, why? Its the cheapest synthetic I have found, and the Havoline brand name has been respected by mechanics and techs for as long as I can remember, and believe me, I can remember a lonnnnng time.

ok, I was reluctant at first, but when I read this I realised you knew what you were talking about, and from personal experience, quaker state is still like that.
you'd be surprised at how many people don't know it either.
