I'm one step closer to trying this out. Just found a neighbor who is going to give me an Elgado eye one tuner that's never been used! Looking forward to experimenting with it both on the iMac and with WMC within W7.

This was a 4 cyl. Engine vibrates during idle. Found 1 of the spark plug had a wrong (too small) gap. Fix it and the idling is much better.

My '87 trk has this engine and I have used many brands and can't tell any difference. I run 5-30 Smittys right now cause I got it free and it sounds the same as when I used Ultra. Good engines but no power and bad mileage.

Seems like the environmental regulation is making oil less effective. Maybe Donald Trump's EPA can Make Oil Great Again! Link to post parent: [ Here ]

Tires & Wheels
I'll keep an eye on wear. Although if they make it to 3/32" at around the 45k mile mark, that's about how my car wears tires on the roads around me. I usually toss tires at about that point since wet grip becomes an issue.
