I've used both and noticed zero difference. I'd just get whichever is cheaper in the future.

My thoughts on the bypass valve deviations are I believe it is due to Wix's attempt to match OEM specs as closely as possible. For example, the Silver 31516 is a Motorcraft FL-400s equivalent, and as such it used Wix's Motorcraft style thread end by

Pennzoil HM and Defy will both work/run very well in that engine in my experience. The Pennzoil will likely run a bit quieter, the Defy may crank over a smidge easier with the cold coming though. JMO. My 4.0 doesn't drip a drop at 122k, not even a

Odd how my 5.3L Sierra's headlamps dim noticeably when the fan, AC compressor or brake lamps are energized. Fresh 'oversized' battery notwithstanding, I've investigated retrofitting the optional second battery setup. Its OE tray is already in situ

Honda specify a 30 (10W, but that's immaterial) for the V-6 in their outboards when essentially the same engine for road use is a 20. PYB 5W30 will do you fine.
