Hmm, where do you see me saying anything about Castrol LMA? I am only speaking to what I have experience with.
According to the temps listed above, the OEM fluid has the lowest boiling point of the fluids mentioned here (SuperBlue, Motul 600, SRF). How is that not objective data supporting my opinion?


My issues with the stock fluid definitely stemmed from track use, but we're talking about an annual fluid flush with $25 worth of fluid (if you use SuperBlue, or $50 if you use Motul 600). Like I mentioned, I regard that as very cheap insurance even on a street car worth thousands of dollars. I don't know what kind of emergency stop I might need it for.
