    It will withstand heat and high revs better than semi-syn. Although you do typically need to keep an eye on consumption with fully synthetic, it doesn't tend to be contaminated as easily therefore consumption shows up more readily

    This seems pretty much solved but I would be getting onto the EvoOz and Meek forums to find out what people are using. Just remember that saying "fully synthetic" on the bottle has little to do which whether the oil is what most people recognise as fully synthetic. Look for a group IV or V oil for fully a synthetic, like Motul 8100 Xmax or Xcess, Royal purple, Motul 300V Chrono etc...

    But yeah, the evo forums will have heaps of info on oils, and Chris Meek (Meek forums) is very experienced with 4g63 engines.
