Chucking a turbo on my ED and I'll change the oil after the return line is fitted. But not sure what oil to go. Would an oil to suit the DOHC turbos be recommended? Or too thin?
TIA ☺

The DOHC turbo runs 15W40 AFAIK... But it had to be a proper oil to handle turbo heat... I run Castrol GTX2 or GTX3 whichever it is in 15W40... No issues to date (BFII turbo)... The non turbos run 10W30, some people might even be running thinner in their non turbo variants...

Cheers,
Tim
