I only run mobil 1 in my cars, but i was wondering if any weight oil is better then another for vtec, since it relies on oil i figure there may be a diffrence? this may be a stupid uestion but i gotta change my oil tommorow so
Not really a stupid question. A lot of oil is personal preference reguardless of what the tests say. I run Mobil1 SuperSyn 5w30 in the winter and 10w30 in the summer (thicker cool and easier on my turbo). Just run the recommended oil weight for your car (5w30) and the choice of synthetic vs. nonsynthetic is more of a personal preference IMHO.
i use valvoline 10w-30, im going to start using the synthetic kind when i get more money. i reccommend using that, because this really famous shop that builds hondas here only uses valvoline for oil canges and use a HAMP filter

Mobil1 synthetic 5w30 for the winter, 10w30 for the summer! wooot!
Same here except it is 5w30 year round (our summers are nice and mild). It is all a matter of personal preferance. Everyone has a different idea of what is ideal. One thing for sure is no one will tell you that Mobil 1 is a bad oil so that is what I use.

I used to run Mobil1 10w30, but moved over to Valvoline SynPower or whatever 10w30 and have no complaints Actually I couldn't really tell a difference, other than the valvoline burned a bunch off the first time I put it in (I've heard that's normal for switching synthetics).

I find that adding rocks and dirt helps my engine run better.
Other than that, Mobil 1 synthetic oil 5W-30 all year round gets my vote, as well as the K&N and Fram XGard2 oil filters.
