    Use some good 10w40 or 5w30/5w40 oil..
    Carby cultus work better with these oil's.

    Engine sound will increase a little but no need to worry about that.

    You have many options available for carby cultus.
    SGO Premium 10w40 api sg.
    ZIC A 10w40 api sn.
    ZIC M 15W40 api sj.

    Shell 10w40 or 5w30 etc... If engine is strong enough.

    Actually in this engine api grading doesn't matter a lot due to some circumstances......

    If you are reluctant to go for thinner oil's then give ZIC M 15W40 a try.

    Currently my car sound is not so loudly.
    What about Castrol?

    you're using wrong oil, 20W50 is very heavy for your car. Use 10W40 or 10W30 as it has hydraulic tappets.

    Well 80% mechanics don't know anything about oil's they just know thick oil and thin oil.

    According to them thick oil is very good..... But reality is we should stick to manufacturer recommendations.
    20W50 oil for this carby cultus with hydraulic tappets is like a slow poison.
    In this kind of tappet arrangement thin oil's should be used like 10W40, 10W30, 5W30...

    We have a cultus 2004 (car is with us from its day one) with mileage above 150k km and from 2012-13 we are using SGO Premium 10w40 api sg in it before that we used shell 5w30 oil don't remember about its details at that time.

    If you are worried about engine noise then yes it may increase a little. About performance it would become a bit better.

    Warm up time would decrease, Pick of the car and smoothness would be increased, Fuel average would increase, Engine life would increase.

    There wouldn't be some huge improvement but these things will improve and car will perform better.
