Dave said he's gonna post his stat sheets.

And I'd personally pay whatever for oil even only with stock internals. I gotta make this 30k debt last as long as possible lol! I'll def be at least testing those oils as well. Whatever runs the best numbers from Blackstone is what I'm gonna run permenantly.

Randy...the OEM filter is a really high filtering filter and it's built for a turbocharged car more or less. The OTS filters are mostly built for N/A cars. So, OEM is better than most of the filters on the shelf is what I was told.

So here's the report on Royal Purple versus M1 on the first go. They're nearly identical as far as quality goes. Although my iron level is still crazy high for some reason! I'm thinking ring wear isn't possible at such a low mileage, and hoping the results of the T6 in there now will show lower numbers. I've looked at analysis threads for the last hour. My iron level is the highest one I've seen! Not happy...
@NeverSummer : Post your analysis' when you have time.

Redline 5w-30 K&N oil & air filters topped off with Royal Purple when needed. I don't race. Engine not modded (until next Monday after my timing belt change.) Daily driver.

All right, where is the distributor cap? I need to find the #1 plug wire to hook up my SUN machine.
