    So, it's louder after the switch to Amsoil?

    I have not noticed any increase in engine noise since my change (about 1500 miles on Amsoil now). However, mine does sound slightly different, ...sounds "smoother" ...not quieter or louder, just different, like it's running easier.


    Sarge, what do you think?

    Yes its louder, more piston slap. Obviously that's going to happen, because I went from a 10-30 dino oil to a slippery 0-30 full synthetic.

    Some LS1's will get "louder" with synthetics as sludge varnish etc. melt away with the cleaning agents found in high quality synthetics....the Amsoil 0-30 is thicker than dino 10-30 I'll share that for sure thing....different motors with different wear patterns sound different.....my LS1 at idle with all the goodies on her sounds like a Ford 350 diesel....gawd it sounds great.....at WOT she roars.....puttin around town she sounds like clickty clack thumpa thumpa bang bang.....

    Did you know...... synthetic never goes bad.. drain oil and put into glass container and set out in sun for a couple hours and everything that has collected in oil will float to top. use over and over again. (:

    I only use a hydrocracked 5W20. I have tested Mobil 7500 5W20 in it with WIX filters, car seems to like it so far. I tried Castrol once, and never again. I didnt like what I saw when I drained it 1000 miles later. with 2500-3000 mile changes, Heads are clean as a whistle and look brand new at
    110K miles. -Tim

    Oh, I forgot you switched from dino. I was thinking you were running a different synthetic like I was. I switched from Mobil 1 0-40 to the Amsoil 0-30.

    Well, my engine has always had kinda like a low volume "tickity tickity tac tic tickity..." sound at idle. Now, it still has about the same volume of sound, but just a little different sorta rhythm.

    Did anyone ever see that episode of Horse Power Tv where they have a 4th gen camaro SS and they put synthetic motor oil, synthetic transmition fluid, and synthetic gear oil, and they gain like 10 HP from doing this?

    the o2 sensors...the stock ones have a metal ring at the beginning of the wiring...the damn things were rattleing against the bottom on the o2 sensor I replaced all 4 with bosch 02's and it's quiet as a mofo now...some people think bosch o2's are shit but their half the price as the dealer ones and they work great so far
    Is that what that is?? I was laying next to the car banging on my y-pipe trying to figure out where that rattle was coming from but I couldn't see much with out jacking/lifting it.

    Amsoil sounds like an elixir fit for divinity as much as y'all are talking it up. If it weren't so doggone expensive I'd be ordering a case tonight. Sarge, am I reading your posts correctly that you say synthetic Castrol 0-30 is second best? It's hard to... follow where you're... going sometimes with all the... everywhere...

    Seems there's a lot of us in S TX.
