I have used this in race engines of both small and large capacity. It is the best performing oil I have ever used in terms of power output. The only problem is wether such a wide temperature range is actually of much benefit. The oil will probably not last very long due to the high additive content it must have. Has anyone got experience of this oil in SAAB's. BTW it is recommended for high output turbo engines, my brothers garage used to get it in huge quantities.
