Hey guys, here is a great series of videos explaining why Low speed pre-ignition is called "The Silent GDI engine Killer"

The videos explain causes, prevention, and mitigation procedures in order to keep your GDI engines running as best as possible.

From the videos you will see why GDI engines require and benefit from:

  • Shorter oil change intervals than regular port injection engines (every 3k miles at least).
  • Low detergent content engine oil.
  • Using good quality fuel (top tier gas).
  • High octane fuel.
  • Fuel injector cleaner additives.
  • Higher viscosity oil when using E85.

Curious, it’s always hard to decipher fact from marketing when a vendor is shilling product.

I’m curious to see what Blackstone has to say from my testing, currently using Castrol Edge which supposedly meets SN+.

Any lists of oil that has been accumulated that is good? Vavoline modern engine seems decent but is charging a pretty penny. Maybe to early to know?

Amsoil has been a great performer so far. Have used it on all my vehicles including the Stinger.
