  • The only reason I went with the Castrol as it was recommended as a decent run in type oil. Motul stuff is around $100AUD ($70USD) for 4 litres. So you can imagine my not wanting to drain the oil every 400 kiloetres or so at that price.

      • None at the moment. Car is making ~270rwhp @ 9psi. When I get some free time I will get it back to my tuner.

            • I'm really interested in seeing a higher boost dyno. I hope you get some free time soon! Good luck with the new baby.

                  My M10 laid down 280 to the wheels on 8psi. You really need more tuning. At 9psi on an s14 it should be in the 330-340 range.
