MAN that's awesome, brand name full synthetic can easily do 10 OCI as apparent by this UOA, I too would go straight 0w20 If I were you. but on this blend you can probably do 13-15k OCI easily.

The Philips in HB4 (9006) would be good for the low beams. You *can* sometimes use HIR2 (9012) for the low beams with a tab cut (instructions are Googleable), but the lamp's optics have to be pretty good for that to not create a bunch of glare. Thi

You are correct on the differences. I just always liked the look of brass, so I went with the Navy. I think you will enjoy one if you get it. Uberti does good work. Slightly better fit and finish than Pietta.

Unfortunately, public transit up here is non existant. It goes from the bad neighborhoods, to other bad neighborhoods, to downtown and the big mall. Getting from the city to the suburbs (my morning commute) is nearly impossible.

An alternative to running complete wire to replace existing, you may find you can run a wire of identical SAE or AWG gauge alongside existing wire. 2 wires of the same gauge = 3 GA increase; ie 2x 10 AWG = 7AWG. Brass connectors (such as a lug to co
