My S-Turbo (I've had it a month now, and it's great!) has a high mileage on it (115,000 miles:roll: ), and while I don't know what oil is in it at the moment, I was thinking of putting synthetic in it at the next service/oil change. What are your views on this?

Thanks,

Synthetic is nearly always better (unless you have a rotary) than non-synthetic, make sure the oil is to the latest API standards (SL or SM) though!

I put in synthetic @ around 92k miles

I just switched to dyno @ around 97k miles

I notice a large differance, startup/crank/engine noise

My engine likes synthetic much better
