    Valvoline Extended Protection 5w30 FA20DIT

    Put 60 miles on it today, it seems just as smooth as the Redline that was in it. I'm just wondering how shear stable it is. I do quite a bit of travel from 6k-12k feet and climb some steep grades for miles at a time in some decent heat. So far, all is good. I guess once it kits 5k, I'll pull it...

    Valvoline Extended Protection 5w30 FA20DIT

    Oil Recommendation?

    Stick with a 40wt. If it’s a track car stuff some Red Line in it for extra insurance. How often does the car see the track and what type of events mostly?

    2006 GMC Sierra 5.8l factory oil

    Just as cheap to do Pennzoil Plat and a Fram Ultra. Better filter and better oil for the same price if not cheaper.

    thinking about using extended drain oci in Subaru

    Like it or not the Ultras are not the Orange cans you guys all fear from their past reputations. I guarantee any filter you can name has had issues at some point as well.

    2019 Silverado 5.3 Oil Consumption

    Wut? Are you saying you've never owned a 5.3L or never had issues? I find it hard to believe not a single one had issues. What generation of the 5.3L were or are they?
