Justin, Good to see you back...When I had my 83 900T, I tried the Castrol GTX 20W50 for a while, during the warm weather here in the Mid-Atlantic. I really did not care for that oil very much. I tried the Castrol Syntec and couldn't get it out of my Saab fast enough. I went back to the Castrol GTX 10W40 and was very happy until my mistake with Slick 50. After replacing the engine I stuck with Castrol GTX 10W30 and I use Militec-1. Currently in my 87 9000S I am using Castrol GTX 10W40 with Militec-1...Everybody is not a speed racer...Riff knows about Militec-1 because his Master Saabtech mechanic uses it in his 93 9000CS....Take care and welcome back Justin.
