Morning all.

Trying to find out what oil to use. I have a 2011 Corsa D 1.7 CDTi which is modded/mapped blah blah. I do on occasion give it some welly which pushes the oil temp around the 125°c mark which I think is a tad too high for my liking, normal driving it sits around 110°c. Anyway I have always used Magnatec 5w30 C3 and change the oil every 6 months, so just wondering for the extra protection against the heat could I use say 5w40 or 0w40 instead?

Thanks
