I'll check my literature from LPE when I get home. I think it was 5w-50 in the summer and something different in the winter.

LPE recommends 15W 50.. I use Mobil1 in that viscosity.

Yep, 15W50 is very thick, but they're right, that is what LPE recommends and given their reputation and knowledge I'd stick with that for built Maggie engines.
