Running that thin of oil in the summer will shorten the life of your engine, dontchaknow...



Edit: I do hope you're talking about your N/A Integra and not your N/A Rex if you're running 10w-30...

Ive switched over to running 20w50 Royal Purple. But I have always used 20w50 in the turbo cars. Regular dino oil works fine, but change it often.

It is my rx. She has 120k on the orginal motor so it does not really matter since she will NEED a rebuild soon. I can only get te 10w 30 anyway because my royal purple supplyer has been sucking lately.

Pfft, just use Castrol 20w-50 non-synthetic. It was great in my GXL.
