    I run Mobile1 full synthetic in my jdm b18c... I dunno personally with high rpm motors i feel synthetic is a good way to go, but expensive. In the grand scheme of things though it probably doesn't matter much as long as you change it regularly. I'm sure people will argue it to death though as to which is better ;)

    Just use what honda uses since they designed the engine or whatever your owners manual sugests.

    I wouldn't waste money on expensive oil, as long as you change it often It shouldn't really matter.
