I'm curious if they've made any big engine changes that called for the swap, because it seems to me that is quite a difference in viscosity.

Anyone here already using it? I might try it for my next change (due up @ 65K in February). Thoughts???
I dont think its too big a deal, but I personaly wouldnt use 0w-20, now if you live where it is colder more often i suppose it would be fine, since its the same HR16DE motor though i would use 5w-30, full syn if you would like, heck use 0w-30 would even be better...
