Default Best oils!

Hey everyone,

Just wanna ask, what do YOU think is the best oils to use on your s2k and why?
I only had my car for about 3 1/2 months, and I'm doing my major service soon, so i assume every oil will be changed. Engine oil, tranny oil and diff oil.
I came from a FN2 before so i was wondering if the F20 is similar to the K20 in terms of maintenance?
Im a Motul fanboy btw, so can i use 8100 x-cess engine oil? Same with type-II lsd tranny oil. Im not sure about the rest, but if you could tell me what you think are the best oils for the car, then shoot away!!!

Thanks in advance!

8100 is fine and many S2Ks run it, including me. Great oil.

For tranny, OEM, Redline or Amsoil seem to be the most recommended. Amsoil makes shifts pretty damn smooth from my experience.

I use OEM for diff.

Motul RBF600 for brake and clutch.

The diff is not an LSD (it's torque sharing) so you can't use LSD oils in it. Diff oil must be GL5.

Currently using:
Engine: nulon 10w40
Trans: amsoil
Diff: amsoil 75w110

Im finding nulon engine oil is burning very quickly on my ap1 00' so bought some castrol edge 5w40 to try next oil change.

For trans amsoil is very smooth once it warms up but honda mtf oem stuff appears to be quite popular. So next change ill give oem a go.
