I agree. I'm not looking to extend the intervals just yet. The engine is still breaking in and I'm just experimenting with different lubes because I'm bored. I'll run it 10k eventually...

I assume you are asking about the Mu(v) of the clutch/fluid system? Mu(v) is the resulting curve of the frictional characteristics of the clutch/fluid system. Mu is coefficient of friction plotted on the vertical axis, v is speed of rotating compo

I went ahead Sunday and changed the factory fill oil at 1500 miles. I went with M1 EP 5w30. I'll probably change it out again at either 3 or 5k, then I'll follow the OLM from there. That's been essentially my routine with every vehicle I've owne

I ended up letting Aamco do a full clutch job. I let them use their Luk clutch kit since I heard more good than bad about them. They used a Luk Rep Set which is supposed to be the OEM equivalent. The pedal is much stiffer than the stock clutch was.

Yeah, the soot level can be extremely low and the oil look like tar. I do 25,000 mile oil changes on my 12.7 Detroit and the oil looks black within the first 1000 miles, but the soot level at 25,000 miles is still less than 1%.
