So look what the people who spend MILLIONS!!! are now saying.

Guess they are just like the rest of the people out there playing with these things.

But with their racing knowledge they should have seen this coming.

I looked this up after seeing the information here.

The RX7 guys are really not thinking that this is true, maybe for the RX-8 but not all rotaries.  Although I don\'t race my FD and I don\'t really use synthetic but, most people on the other forum are saying its ok because of never seeing anything like the goo that appeared on the engine. FYI, so read up alittle more before making a decision like this.

But this is for those people who run their car in the original OMP setup and thus burn engine oil in the housing. I have a PCV OMP adapter and run a separate takn with 2 stroke oil for lubrication in the housings. That oil is made to lubricated AND burn.

I\'lll stick to my semi synth setup with OMP adapter :-)
