    It really isn't. Shears when warm.

    I assume you have never gotten a UOA done on your used oil then?

    UOA's show it is better than just about any other oil right now.

    And it is cheaper. I pay $4 a quart for it.
    Wal-Mart. The only thing I buy from there.

    I know you have already made the right decision, PP 10w30 is the best. BTW you can tell who knows their ls1's by looking at the # of posts, when someone has over 1,000 post they generally know their sh!!. lol

    +1 on the Penzoil Platinum. Last I read, the German Castrol (Castrol Syntec Euro Blend 0w30) was the best, though it's difficult to find. However, that was before any UOAs were done on the PP, and from what I read, it looked pretty promising. Can't go wrong with either one, though.
