It seems all of these 'new and odd' weights are for the PCM now a days. The metals and components will likely keep chugging as long as good quality fluid of ample quantity is used.

The GM ignition module needs to be mounted to a heat sink. The thin sheet metal of the fender will not keep it cool enough.

I don't believe HDEO clean any better or any worse than regular oil for gasoline engines. Any of the big name synthetics will clean and keep things clean. People stress way too much about this. Even quality conventional oils do a fine job at keeping

I don't see how it can go bad. Oil doesn't break down until it's put in and ran in an engine. It can sit in bottles for years and never go bad. Only thing you'd have to watch out for is the SAE ratings and certifications change over time. I've got se

The digital pump that pumps the oil into the car doesn't matter, because you can put in 5 quarts into a car that calls for 5 quarts and it can still take another quart to bring it up to the F line.

Any meaningful increase in media surface area reduces the pressure drop across the media, allows more entrapment area; and with larger container increases total oil capacity. Some oversized filter are only a slight increase, say another cup full. Th

You are better to run more air hose than more extension. 14g on a 50ft run is small if your compressor pulls 15amps.
