Default About Engine oil on 133,xxx Miata

Just bought My first turbo car --- Miata

What kind of engine oil should I use on 1.6 motor with Greedy Td04 and Toda Cams.
I think he used Eneos 5W40 before. Is't that good enough.

Thank you for helping out.

Just about any oil will run fine in a miata 5W40 is fine but you could also run 10W40 15W40 5W30 check the owners manual for the reccomended grade for your climate (you should eventually find a magical grade that will stop your lifters ticking).

But oil grade would be the last think I was worried about on a 133K boosted miata. Do a compression/leakdown test on that badboy and freshen **** up as needed.
