    Well since I think online pissing matches are pointless(which is what this is turning into) when at the end of this MY personal preference is to run anything but Pennzoil and YOUR personal preference will be to like it and neither one of us will change our minds. So I restate again that we will have to agree to disagree. You have a nice day now sunshine.

    With a thermostat that allows your oil to reach minimum 180f I like them very much....

    Well if your idea of a "pissing match" is you dont read nor provide any solid data and we provide irrefutable data......and you continue to spew horseshit and refuse to read and comprehend anything...then yeah ...I agree....no point in continuing asking you to read anything.....go forth in ignorance and marketing bullshit and be happy.

    I knew you could run it too old and I was thinking you wanted it to stay around 200 for optimum performace but I couldn't remeber for sure what the lower temp was....thanks for refreshing my brain!

    Well said, Sarge. Verifiable data is necessary for good decision making, while irrational emotion only leads to bad decision making.

    Excellent reminder to those who want to add an oil cooler. I've seen quite a number of such setups with large coolers and multiple remote oil filters that nealry doubled the stock capacity, but no thermostat. One can get away with that here in Florida as long as one regularly drives far enough for all that oil to reach proper operating temperature. However, this is not good for those who also use their hot rods as their daily driver with a commute to work of only a few miles or so (even worse for cold climates).

    Y'all know why you want your oil to regularly reach proper operating temperature, don't you?

    Ugh I did read and well admittedly the comprehension eh I'll admit below average but when I ask so I can understand the testing methods better you go off like I'm attacking ya. So on that point I shall continue my ignorance, I don't remember talking about any marketing bullshit(no I don't believe it gives you more hp or anything like that) and indeed I will be happy. I'm glad we can agree to disagree be seeing ya

    Hows it going GatorSS, I was kinda intrigued about why oil has to be at operating temps, now im more of a body guy cause that is what I went to school for, but I was kinda thinking that the oil has to reach its proper viscosity so that it can flow through the engine and lubricate properly, am I wrong? Please fill me in, im just trying to learn more about oil its kinda something I rarely ever thought about till this thread, thanx, oh and by the way nice F-15 thats a good pic.

    It needs to get to operating temps to burn off water vapor & other contamination that forms acids, sludge & varnish.

    Short runs kill engines unless oil is changed frequently.

    cool thanx for the info, that makes pretty good sense.

    Now EVERYONE KNOWS Pennzoil causes sludge AND Pamela Anderson is the perfect mother!

    When are people gonna let Pennzoil sludge rumor rest?

    I have used Pennzoil in all my cars for over 20 years and 100's of thous of miles without any engine trouble. Infact my 89 Camaro with 210 thous miles on it using pennzoil still runs and sounds like new and doesn't use any oil.

    Sarge you have a link to a sound clip of piston slap? I tried to find it but couldn't using the search engine.
