That's what Champion Motors suggested. Everyone I have asked has recommended non-synthetic for the first few changes. The only new thing to my ears was diesel oil for the first 500kms. I believe it has to do with the zinc content which helps tremendously with metal to metal contact during the break in period.

Due to a misleading tach I did not short shift as much as I first thought. It was fun though. Ran into a Hellrot E36 coupe after the meet who had no idea what he was getting into. Valiant effort by the driver, must have had a charger/turbo, but I think the extra three people in the car kept it from being close.
