I know it's off beat but check your coolant guys. My reservoir was dry as a bone. I highway drive and back road it at nearly 90-100 on back roads 75-85 highway. The engine drank the coolant to stay under temp. So watch out y'all! Oh and my LCA is chattering, time to get some BMR polys!

Back to oil.
Yes sir. Sorry. Lol! I did buy an extra 1 quart. Our cars take 6 quarts of oil.

So it looks like the general consensus is Mobil synthetic and Napa filters every 5-10k? Sounds good to me, I've got a Napa right down the street.

Yes sir but remember , the Mobil 1 extended performance fully synthetic. The extended performance has the gold cap. Not to confuse you with the regular Mobil 1 synthetic but there is a difference. Lol. Napa gold , heck yeah bro. 7500 to 10k mile interval oil changes, heck yeah.
