I thought I had seen it all but apparently not so. Interesting read below too. I still want an HKS Exhaust though.

I think Quaker State briefly offered odd weights in synthetics years ago for the tuner crowd.

That's just weird! Definitely tickles that part of the mind that thinks, wow, they're different for a reason!

I did that with Valvoline(20 winter-30 summer) in the latter 60s. And my engine didn't blow up either.

Ha no. Sucker born every minute. The Mitsubishi Evo guys that come in my shop have never mentioned this. Thankfully. Most of them run Redline, Amsoil or Royal Purple.
