  • What type of oil

    Hi,

    Wanting advise on the best type of oil and grade to put in. I have had a stage 2 remap done from Thorney last year, and the car is due its 1st service (7500K on clock). Its a bit far to go to thorney for a service, so gona take it to local dealer but i want to supply oil. Also what filter could i supply, and anything else ie plugs etc.......

    Thanks

      U would not go far wrong with Vauxhall's own fully Synthetic
      5W 40 I believe !!!

          I believe there has been some problems with turbo failures and oil leaks when a thin oil is used. !!!

                All Vauxhall high performance engines use the above oil now, If ur unsure then the service book will tell you what oil was used when built at the factory
