I've been using 0w-30 Amsoil for the past 2 years on my 08 Si with HAMP oil filters. This oil is better then mobil1 and Royal Purple

I believe you dont want to use 0W if you live anywhere it gets to freezing or below... i may be wrong though. I use 5W because it def gets below freezing where i live

no problem, get a quality filter too. an s2000 filter from honda is a good choice, or a mobil1.

Why would you recommend an S2000 oil filter on an Si? Removal of the oil filter heat shield is required to run the S2k filter, and there really isn't much benefit to it for the amount of effort it take to put it in. :facepalm:
