2JZ-GTE Engine Oil (TT Engine on a MKIV)
Stock = 10w30 Semi Synthetic
I recommend Fully Synthetic 10w40/50
Dry Capacity 6.5L's
Change capacity 5-6L's (Have 6L's ready)
Regular Driving - BPU or Less
5w40 - Silkolene Pro S, Castrol RS, Motul 300V Power
5w50 - Valvoline VR1 SynPower, AGIP PC5w-50
Regular Driving - BPU to Big Power
10w40 - Motul 300V Chrono, Royal Purple Racing 41
10w50 - Silkolene Pro S
10w60 - Castrol RS (NB Untested)
Track Oil
15w50 - Silkolene Pro R, Motul 300V

I'd recommend Royal Purple or 10w50 Silkolene as it's Ester based unless I wasusing the car only for short journey's then i'd use the Valvoline.
NB: Mobil1 0wxx has been known to get past the piston rings and causeexcessive oil consumption. I would recommened ALL 0wXX oils areavoided. 5W is the lowest I would use.
