Re: Synthetic oils? Back rest?
I used synthetic in everything until I had my outputseal go bad and leak oil onto the clutch plate ($1.98 seal causing an $1400.00 repair).
The tech told me that synthetic can do this to the seals (Specially BMW because they use such hard rubber). The Synthetics do not keep the gaskets and seals from drying out and cracking like the dyno does.
For what it worth I went 50/50 dyno and synth castrol after the repairs.
