  1. Regular oil is probably good stuff, no doubt. Been using Amsoil since the 90s in hundreds of equipment with testing as required. Use redline and Mobil 1 with excellent results. My Toyota recommends 10K oil changes on synthetic oil, 5K on regular oil. I don’t think there’s bad oil of course, if I’m going extended I’m using synthetics, 5K on non.

  2. In my younger days I ran headers and glass packs all the way out the back. Car or truck didn’t matter. Did straights on diesels. I always lived in the country, no one close to wake up. In my late 50s I wanted it quieter with the exception of my old truck. It’s like a switch was hit and it became noise. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. The modern exhaust system is a series of mufflers. The cats muffle a bit and the last one the resonator is a muffler. It done in a way to be less restricted. So eliminating the muffler will increase sound some but it wouldn’t be like there’s none on there. I did it for awhile it sounded fine. Of course some wouldn’t like it, that’s why there’s different brands of mufflers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. FOB and dead battery

    Our spare lasted 6 years. For the cost I just replace the one every three years. The car still under warranty at 8 years and we take it to the dealer. The service writer replaced it for free. I bought 4 Hyundai’s and several GMCs from the same dealer, they provide great service. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. FOB and dead battery

    My wife’s Genesis has a slot you push the fob into if it’s dead to start it. We replace the fob battery every three years. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. E85 Power Increase

    Where I bought E-85 it's says minimum 70 percent. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. I'll do it. Law and order. Obey the law. There are parts of the country where speed limits are higher were most people drive. And that's why ain't no people. I guess that's where social contact comes in. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. If I didn’t buy a small block with a lifter tick, that would eliminate all of the 60s-90s and a few 5.3s. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. All components have stress level of endurance. An engine for instance can go 5K in short burst. Living there for hours on end would shorted its life. That goes with most components. If GM produces drive shafts that can't handle 120 mph a few times in its lifespan, shame. If anyone's been out west where the limits are quite high. Cursing at higher speed is effortless in these trucks. If 100 mph is critical mass for a driveshaft, again shame. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. Understand, good move on the real-estate. We did the same. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Some of us old folks can’t help pointing out alternatives. I read an article the other day most people retire with less than 100K in the bank. Just a little money in an IRA early in life makes a difference. Just one less loaded Denali in your 20s would do it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I didn’t read it that way. Outdated phones, 10 year old Buick’s is a stretch. I read maybe you don’t need all the bling, maybe take a deal save some money have two rides. I did some of the same and retired at 58 much like him. My biggest problem is deciding which of the five rides I’m driving today. Sports car, sports sedan, hot rod truck, etc. Much better than driving a high country to work at after the age of 65. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I may trade often do to mileage my wife doesn’t. We have 3 of her paid off cars all with less than 100K miles. The oldest Hyundai she drove 5 years my daughter drove 7 years mostly under warranty. My grandson gets it next. So I do both. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I don’t get some people’s logic. If my name is on a mass produced product I’m not going to put my worse on it. My trucks did lots of highway miles and off-road every day. If I stayed with factory tires I generally got no less than 45K miles. I usually had 1000 lbs or more in the back. If something mass produced usually it cost less to produce it. So it should be the same or better not worse. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Headers are headers, which ever small block doesn’t matter. I am impressed with the longevity. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
