This was at the 2.5s engines on the thread and Andy kindon did say because of the pistons not the oil

I've ran millers in my 2.0 and it's been spot on

yes is nothing to do with the oil as Andy Kindon confirmed my 2.5 had shell helix in it and that still blow up.

Millers 10w 60NT in mine every 2,500 miles - although I wouldn't expect you to run that in your car with 280bhp - I used Shell Ultra Helix 5W-40 in mine when it was running up to 350bhp and it was spot on

in an engine with standard bearings, I would use 10/40. shell or millers used both over the years. they are roughly the same price.

in an endings with race bearings in I would use 10/60 or even 15/60

I was saying Helix as he couldnt remember which shell oil people were on about.
Everyone seem to use millers oil, which ever oil your currently using and its not doing any harm and your happy with it, just carry on using it. Older engines iv been told 10/60 newer engines 10/40.
If your car is a 2.5 engine just use pasturised milk lol
