    For the record, the reason for the broken rings was not because I let monkeys change my oil, but because I let that idiot Clark Turner taint my UTEC with his tune.
    heh...taint...

    I don't honestly care in involve myself in the oil discussion any further. I have my opinions, and have done my best to base those opinions on used oil analysis as much as I can.

    The comment I want to add is that your statement above is severely lacking any implied humor, if that is indeed your point. Also, there is little room for humor in the serious world that is the proper lubrication of modern engine. People have fought to point of bloody fingers on car forums for maybe a decade to bring us the lack of information and butthurt that we currently have. The least you could do is have a little respect for these fallen heros.

    He leaves a trail of broken motors where ever he goes. Over the last 2 times he came to Dallas, he has taken out 4 motors. Every last person from both tuning sessions had gotten their cars retuned elsewhere due to difficulties or simple dissatisfaction what what he did. Around here he's earned the reputation of flying in, tuning 20 cars in a weekend by leaning them out for cheap power, and then scooting. Other people elsewhere have also had problems with his tunes.

    As I said, I'm not arguing with you guys on this anymore. I've seen what I've seen and you see what you want to see. I'm sticking to my guns and that's it.

    You've seen what you've seen, and others have seen what they want to see? Who is delusional in your view?
