Valvoline Racing VR-1 20-50W. For now, it's working very well, but I have been extremely careful about allowing the turbo to cool down before shutting off the engine. I did try Castrol Syntec Full Syn with a can of Crane Cams Prelube, but the combination of the two did not blend well and the oil became too foamy. Lesson learned; Do not blend additives into your oil!

Eventually, I will be using a synthetic once all this dust settles.
