I just switched to synthetic and my cars performance seems to have increased greatly. Before, I would beat my buddies pretty tricked out civic by like 1-2 car lenghts now I smoked him this afternoon by about 3.5 car lenghts (keep in mind he has TONS of mods done to his motor).
Quick question though... what are the downfalls of synthetic oil other then it being more expensive?
Wow, if your car is faster than your buddies because you switched to synthetic oil, you definetly need to get the leather seats upgrade that adds 10hp. You should also get the sticker upgrade for another 25hp.
no you misread it... my car was already faster hands down in a 1/4 mile. What I'm saying is, after I switched it seemed to be a lot faster! Plus I already have the leather sets upgrade and stickers! :P shithead lol
finding this forum pretty amusing... thats for the laughs... dude... i don't know about u... but changing your oil make the motor run smoother... and DOES NOT MAKE YOUR CAR FASTER IN ANYWAY... unless u havn't changed your oil in about 3 years... instead of 3 months!!
Even in Stock Class, There Are Ways to Get an Edge on the Competition
In our BMW 318ti-a car that we had a great deal of trouble extracting more power from-replacing the stock engine oil, tranny fluid and rear end lube with Red Line synthetic products did very little to increase the maximum power output, but it did get us more than five additional horsepower at 4200 rpm-right in the meat of the powerband.
