Thanks for posting this Psycho1122; There is more than "a little" information in it.

I can't completely buy into the author's absolute authority stand he has taken on several topics, but I still admire his commitment and time taken on the paper. It contains lots of great info.

Parts of it kind of reminded me of the topic of cylinder head porting where some guys insist that more and more flow always means more and more power. I just haven't seen that to be the case at all.

I'm using Mobil 1 0-30 in mine since it was rebuilt a couple of years back. I do buy into the "thin as the engine can get away with" idea for motor oil and so far, so good.

Thanks again for posting.
