Anybody using Red Line Oil 5W 30 in their TSX? Mobil 1 seems to be the synthetic of choice. However Comtech Sports sells this one their website.
Is that considered an endorsement. Any feedback?

Is this a competition grade oil or a sports grade oil? In either, they'd perform fairly well. Redline Oil is often quoted as liquid gold because of how expensive it costs. I use Motul competition grade oil instead of Mobil 1 mainly because of how I drive and the derived performance I need.

Downside to using competition grade oil is, you'd need to change the oil more often than others would. Otherwise, you're engine performance will become sluggish and seriously undermined when the oil quality has degraded.

It is regular grade 5W 30 not racing oil. My TSX is a stock daily driver. I am just looking for the best synthetic oil I can run that will provide the best protection and performance over the long term. Everyone seems to like Mobil 1 but Comptech Sport endorses Red Line products. Appreciate yours or anyone elses feedback/experience.
