Oh no no...I think you have me wrong, I wasn't complaining.
After a few changes of Mobil1 after I originally got my Z I thought the oil pressure was a bit lower than it should have been. Having a RevUp I was, of course, concerned. I switched over to Castrol Syntec but the pressure still seemed lower than it should have been (idle psi was probably 10-12) and crusing psi was 50-55 instead of the normal 60 that I was used to seeing when I first got it.
German Castrol has made all the numbers on the money. My normal 6/60/60 observation (6th gear - 60 mph - 60 psi) is back again and idle is right at 15 psi. Winter, well as winter as winter gets here in the mountains of TN, is coming and I'm looking forward to seeing the improvements in cold weather startup.
We're even forecast for snow this weekend (at elevations above 3500 ft.)! I wish I had my Bridgestones mounted up for some winter driving this weekend. I've got two good fronts (RE 960 AS Pole Positions) so I'm picking up a new pair of rears to match. If I didn't have two good fronts already I'd be picking up a set of the new Continental Extreme DWS tires...every test I've seen has them ranked well beyond
the next closest competitor. I've got nothing bad to say about the Bridgestones that I run, but I'd love to run the Contis and see just how much better they were. But I don't expect us to get the nearly the snowfall this year that we did last year. Almost made me want to defect to the Mitsubishi and run an Evo last year...board members can buy my loyalty by chipping in for a GTR if they like.
