Hey friends, I'm not living here on Pelican enough lately. About the time I think I can help with some advice, all you old timers beat me to it.

Ronnie-boy, what part of VR1 dino don't you understand? Dinosaur squeezin's, good economical stuff with good ZDDP levels in the absence of synthetic. But yes, it can lead to coking in the turbo...and we're not talkin' the snortable stuff.

Lots of folks have remedied that issue with an after market filter after the drip our esteemed Mr. Fairman as mentioned (at some point in the past he shared part numbers and sources for said filter IIRC). Good insurance from plugging critical oil passages. It's been on my bucket list.
Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.
