Since when has hassle dominated the firearms world? Plenty of stuff doesn't make absolute sense. A lever .30-30 is more expensive, less accurate, and less powerful than low cost .308 bolt guns these days. .30-30 is still an excellent choice. If y

If you mount the panel inside the vehicle, the sun may keep the temperature inside the vehicle within range even on a colder day.

Now that I have a high performance engine with oil pressure and temp gauges, I pay a lot more attention to this. My V8 with 8 qt sump takes a while. Fully warm is 210F. But, with modern oils, I feel comfortable leaning on it at 150 but never redline

I know some will disagree but I think your plan is a good one. PU 5w30 is on the thin side of 30 weights (9.9 @ 100*C) and should work fine. After the 5 and 10K change I'd stretch it out based on a UOA or two...

First off, does your car charge thru the cigarette plug? The panels in these things aren't good/efficient. 5W at 12v is tiny current. And it's intermittent at the best conditions and irrelevant at night and any time but the best hours of a sunny d

Yes running a 20W-5O is way heavier than necessary to the point of being counterproductive. Since this is a modified engine you should have an oil pressure gauge installed (assuming you don't already have one). I think you'll find a typical synthetic

I have a lot of Pennzoil ultra 5w-30 syn motor oil. I know 0w-20 is recommended for this engine. Using thicker oil will reduce MPG also. Will it be OK to use this? I'm going to do my first oil change at 5K and have the dealer do it at 10K. I know syn

A couple of things come up.......One is oil vapor recirculating through the PCV, which, in a DI engine, can cause deposits on the intake valves. Not so much an issue with port injection, since the solvent properties of the fuel tend to keep these de
