Aiyah, oil is oil is oil is oil la.
Don't expect your car to turn into a rocket, no matter what oil you use.

rocket. if it do, no one will buy good fast engine/ car anymore. what i
meant was..overall include..noise..smoothness..etc etc.

eng? Alot of people are againts Mobil oils (BTW i use mobil 1)

The appreciable difference is negligible.
What you get is the need to quantify the improvement because you'll have
shelled out 150 big ones for the oil.
The benefits you get from such an oil is something that is hidden,
something that can only be appreciated after years of ownership.
Immediate, visceral gains are next to nil.

But try using normal mineral oil for say 2 services. Now do a full drain
and fill your car up with fully syntactic oil. I can assure you you'll
feel the difference in smoothness and lightness of the engine
I admit that oil does not make you car any faster. But not all of us want
to have a faster car (old liau, speed less). But like u said there are
some hidden benefits, and it does protect your eng in many ways not seen
Basically for us (normal users) we need not bother much, but good oils
does help (e.g. racing cars won't last if they were to fill up with normal
oil) Iāve spoken to oil manufacturer people, there is a difference in oils
p/s: with fully syntactic, u can save more money (longer oil change)

etc. But i would like to know more about Mobil SuperSyn also from ur

Use a fancy 50-weight synthetic for however many service intervals you
want, but just one will do (prolly cheaper too)
Then change to a 30-weight el-cheapo mineral oil.
I, also, can assure you that you will feel the difference in smoothness
and lightness of the engine.
Synthetic oils are feel-good items. They do more for you than they do for
your car. But hey, if it makes you happy, go for it.

If thats your point of view then tell those race car or even the F1
to use those cheapo oil of yours and see what happen.

Well, since you drive an F1 car, then of course you need synthetic oil!
Er... what do you mean your car isn't the F2003-GA?
Seriously, what WOULD happen if they used the el-cheapo Castrol GTX?
Please, do tell.
