Motul 300V vs German Castrol

I will share my experience with both oils:

Castrol SLX 0W30: Good oil, meets all the automotive requirements, one of the few grade 30 that meets ACEA A3B3, HTHS: 3,5 viscosity@100 12,2
(German made)

Motul 300V 5W30: HTHS: 3,6 viscosity@100 11 Above existing requirements
Group V Ester based oil

With the 300V in I noticed loss of low end torque, better mid and high rpm acceleration, smoother engine operation. I would say that the results are similar to the lightweight flywheel.

^^^^ Correct very nice oil! I use this as well in my evo ix rs. Its not the cheapest stuff but it is the best! A majority of your Jgtc 500 cars runs Motul 300v! We carry tons of this stuff as it sells like candy!
