Yes I've searched haha. Vr6 oil weight. I live in the nw and it's about 50 deg here now. I've heard everything from 0w-40 to 20w-50. What are people using and what do you recommend. I'm tempted to run thicker for more protection this time.

What does your owner's manual say to use? If that's not good enough, then get an oil pressure gauge and find a weight that gives you 10psi per 1000rpm.

^This.
I believe its what the owners manual calls for. Last time I was up in Washington I had my oil changed and thats what they put in it. Now that I think about it no matter what state Ive had my oil changed they put 5w-30 in it.
:facepalm:
