He sorta lost me when he says he changes oil when the motor starts making noises, like that is a indicator then he jumps into full on Race Talk. (Boring).
I do buy into not as much important what oil as long as you change it at reasonable intervals. He fails to mention though how much hotter and stressed new motors are to match the better oil. Pollution used to go out the tailpipe, now it stays in the motor to beat emmissions. Temperature stays hot to burn off contaminates and getting V8 power from 4 cylinders isn't exactly a light duty task so when he thinks the track is the only place oil is important he loses credibility with me.

I'm a Calvinist too.

Here comes the minutia nit-picking on his article over perceived imperfection in his argument. His religious analogy is apt.

Fixed it for you...waiting until the engine makes noises? Guess he didn't think there was any value in a UOA.

I think BITOG is made up more of people who are looking for a quality product and getting a decent service interval, all at a decent price. Of course, people wish they could somehow double the lives of their engines by what they choose from the Walmart shelf, but I hardly think that's what BITOG is all about.

Yah, Guy is an opinionated blow hard. He is one of the reasons I stopped looking at TTAC. His comments about track cars had very little to do with what I'm about car wise. No car he ever drove will survive to antique status.

His quote from article: "For that reason, I wouldnt run anything but a full synthetic oil in any modern track rat or club racer. Period, point blank."
Gee, I wonder if any of his publications have the big-name synthetic-manufacturing oil companies as a sponsor.....
