Yep, in the same camp here, albeit any 5w is easily certified as completely fine til -20F, so focusing solely on the WINTER spec as the oil "quality criteria" is like focusing on what winter parka to...

Some of us change oil more often than once a year and i would advise you: so should you.

This is not about going "cheap" on quality. Both 0w40 and 5w40 Dexos2 are officially approved by GM as top...

No probs. I have spec sheets for all and believe i have quoted them in my sticky, but was too lazy to double check :)

Now that you have narrowed it down:

I drive a $47k CAD Camaro with zero mods. My track budget is $20k per season. If i can save 50% on a maintenance item without cutting down on quality i will surely do it. Cheers!

We are starting to split hairs :)

0w is a winter rating. Yes it is lower viscosity, which excels in low winter temps, but in summer time, it is not just the speed of flow that counts, but...

8

I believe it was right after, when folks questioned 0w40 vs 5w40 and hence they both addressed that very specific question.

Lest we forget, the original factory fill was 5w30 for 2 or 3 yrs...

My key point is, there is virtually zero difference in how 0w and 5w will protect a motor at start up, unless it is minus 35C. While w40 will protect it equally at high temp like track duty. So,...

I bet to disagree on both points. 5w provides plenty of cold start flow protection even in winter. Look up the spec.
Otoh, too much cold start winter protection in summer is not necessarily a good...

Cold start at minus 20C is very different than a cold start at say plus 15C :) And to your point, 5W30 is authorized for street use. But not only that, as 15W50 is mandated for ZLE track use only....

There was another thread from both Tadge and Al which also speaks about 5w40 dexos2 for both street/track. See my sticky in Mechanical section. Cheers!

I know it is a factory fill. GM did a deal with Mobil and they supply all dealers with it now. Profit margins must be astronomical. And yes, there is zero difference between 0w and 5w unless somebody...

I think they sometimes go on sale, but frankly there is ZERO advantage running 0w over 5w in summer. So i dont see a reason for spending so much more. GM doesn't even mention Mobil1 as a preferred...

No 5w30 is certified as dexos2. Just dexos1 but must be full synthetic. Still the best choice for street cars imo. Heck, i tracked my modded c5z on 5w30 for over a decade with zero issues. Mind ya, a...

Hmmm Motul 5w40 Dexos2 is easy to find here, so surprised it would not be States side.
Valvoline seems back on the list, plus ACDelco has 2 of them, plus Amalie, etc.

yes the choices in 0w40 dexos2 are limited and clearly GM wants us to go to their dealer and pay mucho dinero for an oil change. And i get it :)

1. Have you run the car as is, on track before with no issues? Or was it the first time?
2. Are the tires stick...

Brake bias is largely determined by master cylinder, so trying to determine changes based on pad sizes alone may not be the most effective here. Also, given the...
