Children seek acceptance and validation. 2.3m views is hard to stand against, but it can be done. Unfortunately, not all kids can be reached, or reached in time. Do the best you can and hope enough sticks to make them happy and healthy...and stay

While this is technically a 'filter failure', I would say it's not so much a defect in the filter, as it is the result of damage at the hands of the consumer segment. Lots of people are quick to point out that the dent itself is small, but these peo

Again, that seems fairly normal. I4 NA engines typically do fine 0-60... it's acceleration above 60 that can be slow sometimes.

It's nice, but $435k(starting price) for a single engine airplane is a bit outrageous. Guess I'll stay in the used market.

It's been a long time coming. I interviewed with Continental aircraft engines back in 1993 for a position developing a 2-stroke diesel engine for general aviation. That project never really got off the ground (so to speak).

BE ADVISED this information is FALSE. Mobil 1 doesn't meet the MS-6395 SPEC. MS5K DOES MEET THE MS-6395. Run PYB or PP 5w20 and forget about it. Use with confidence and sleep well at night.

Don't worry about the singe Ultra spin-on "failure". When there are literally dozens upon dozens of reported failures (like with the Purolators), then I'd be concerned.
