Good. My objective is to add an spin-on oil filter to the tranny, mine already has the bigger heat exchanger, since is a C5. I'd lik to get something ready, like that one from the mod thread.

After reading this post, checked my oil and it was waaay down,after 4,400 miles, yet it has never previously used oil. So at 181k miles I have just changed the PCV valve. And 5W-30 with the next OCI in ~1200 miles

They get dry (sublimates a little) and white, but don't melt easy, like hydrocarbonians. Stay in place better.

I have no experience with that engine, but I would bet you have a cracked cylinder head. Personally, I would price a recon head. Might be a practical solution. On my mopars, you have to replace the head bolts as well.
