as best i know, the competition is a 35 minute dyno session where the competitors are allowed to make as many dyno pulls as they can/want to. most competitors will pull the engine to redline, change some parameter hoping to pick up a couple numbers

Thanks everyone. But I do stop and go inner city Chicago driving. I rarely run it on the highway. I'm forced to change it in this brutal Feb winter. I wish I could just go to Jiffy Lube but I dont trust them. A friend of mine was a manger there years

Jump to new posts Re: Sway Bar Endlinks - Greasable vs Sealed by mjoekingz28 @ Today at 01:50 AM

IMO, sealed pieces are just great for FWD and easy-going vehicles. For heavier trucks and up, greasable may lead to longer life, smoother handling, and/or heavier weight ratings.

1/2 quart per 3,000 miles isn't bad. I have a '99 Civic EX and the engine isn't very hard on the oil. Unless you're doing severe service, 5,000 is likely OK. You could always send off for a UOA if you're concerned and want to try 5,000.

Those engines can probably handle 10k on dino if doing it in less than a year. The oil consumption adds life to the oil because topping off replenishes the additive package.

For reference, Canada's Mobil high mileage is called Mobil Super 2000, which is a blend, with ILSAC rating. I don't know if it's the same as the Mobil Super high mileage in the States, of course, but we don't get Mobil 1 HM up here.
