Hi all


I have recently upgraded from my R Sport to a gb270

Just wondering what engine oil I should be looking at

It’s got a forged engine running around 360bhp

Oil brand wise I always use millers oil grade wise the subject is normally a can of worms tbh lol . If there's anything in the s/h saying what grade it's been running on previously I'd stick with that .

Otherwise Standard bug onwards most use 5w30 and for classics 10 w 40 .

Being forged I'd probably suggest 10 w 40 ,as most forged pistons run looser clearances and the slightly thicker oil will protect the bores /pistons until up to temp and the clearances close up a bit .
