    Your gauge is just a calculation from the computer, but 50 is fine.

    I ain't gonna rip you...your choice
    OP seems about right for running a 20 weight ( RP 5-30 = 20 weight after about 500 miles).....so your normal....

    Mobile is a town in Alabama.
    Sure I'll share Royal Purple UOA's in my motor and other LS1's that suck. I dont use Mobil1 as it doesnt return stellar UOA returns either and frankly the VOA's clearly reflect Mobil going cheap on the add packs. I use Pennzoil Platinum 10-30 or Schaeffer's Series 7000 10-30.
