I never did receive a "call back" from Oakland PD. We played "phone tag" for a few days, but never received a straight honest answer. I did not "keep quiet".
Motor oil results lie in the eye of the beholder IMHO. IF you want to run "synlube" in your sump, have at it. Just don't ram it down my throat that it is the best in the world. There are several motor oils that are high quality. I am using a "boutique" oil for now, while my cams break in. I prefer to use oil that is from a reputable company and meets the specs that the OM requires.
If you like Synlube, use it, just don't jam it down my throat. I may puke on you.
