Which Amsoil?

2013 gt track pack. Wants 5w50, I'm going 5w30.

Question. OE or signature series? What is the difference and what are you using?

Signature series is the best oil they make!

5w30 is good for a street car. Get the Sig Series and an EA filter, then enjoy your 15k mile/1yr drain interval!

Depends on your climate, mods, and driving style and goals.

is that stuff safe to use for extended periods? Being a "racing oil" I would imagine they assume you're draining after each race.

Sig series is not actually their racing oil. It is intended for dd's. both oils I asked about are though, so wasn't sure which to go woth

Not bad at all, just not as good. Use the 5w-30 and don't worry about it. Maybe next time use the 10w-30.

Texas. Hot.
She is a garage queen for now. Weekend fun, hard driving but nothing extreme. Should have it paid in a year (hopefully) and then it gets a Paxton, wider tires and see road courses and strips.

Once you put the paxton on it and start abusing the car switch to the RD 10 w30, but for now anything will work. I'd be using 10 w30 signature in Texas.

I usually use the signature series but when they deliverd it to my mechanics shop they brought dominator instead... I just have to change it sooner then I would the signature series.
