    I don't plan on being out of my jeep until the staircase. And then only long enough to check my line. The backside will be cold brrrr.
  2. Big Bear Run 3X BoH April 13 & 14

    My plan is to be there at 7:30. Channel 20 works for me. Last look at the weather showed great skies until after 4pm. The cookies are in the jeep as are enough tools to overhaul the whole jeep.

    We ride at dawn. Well ok, maybe a bit later. Last I read was meet up at 7:30.
  13. Safe to use 5W-30?

    My GM LT engine in my pickup has a VVT system as well. It's a simple on-off system, actuated by oil pressure and controlled by electronics. There is a simple solenoid on the front of the cam cover that pushes on a valve to open oil into the actuator chamber. Here's a thread someone started...
  14. Safe to use 5W-30?

    How do you know that? My understanding of the VVT and VVL systems is that they are binary: on-off. I believe they simply use oil pressure as the force, but the control is purely electronic. That is: hydraulically actuated, electronically controlled, like many hydraulic systems. Typically...

  18. Ditch the 0w-20 before its too late.

    I think a lot of people use them. I used them once. They took fully a month to get results to me. CarbonSteel turned me on to using the lab that Amsoil has a link to on their website. Apparently, Oil Analyzers Inc has more sophisticated equipment and is ISO certified, where Blackstone is...
  19. Ditch the 0w-20 before its too late.

    The thin oil trend is across the automotive industry. It's all about fuel economy. The new econo cars are running 0w8 oils. Transmission oil, diff oils are all going toward thin.
