    I use Mobil 1 15W-50 fully Synthetic in my Z20let turbo. It's putting out a lot more power than standard. I never use any oil in between survices. It is exspensive but worth it to Know you have got the best.

    No mate - imo this is not nearly good enough - although I used to run this in my Alfa 156's with no problems.

    The ZLET requires something a bit more of the fully synthetic variety....
