Default Oil and Air Filter Wars - Enter At Your Own risk!

Anyone who wants to argue about motor oil or air filters, do it here, and quit hijacking other threads. The topic is clearly labeled so the rest of us who have made up our minds anyway can ignore it.

Another rule for this thread....no low blows such as how someone changes a timing belt and so on.

Me:

The illiteracy rate is so high that I think only around 1 out of 10 are capable of this strenous activity, besides, reading is one thing, understanding is a whole different animal.

Woof! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

changing oil often is better than changing oil less often.. that way you dont have to worry as much about all the anal-lytical specs and soot loading and grunge factor.

car54,you're on the right track with the furnace filter, change it to an electrostatic furnace filter mounted to the grill and now yer talkin'. Faster ya go the more current it generates the better it filters. Unhook the MAF and run a wire from the filter to the ECU to avoid those pesky MAF failures.. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

The following is a personal testimony of Mr. Randall Johnson, no compensation was given, nor undue duress applied for this recommendation, Mr. Johnson came forward under his own free will, he really believes in the product.

I used to use inferior oil stuff, until a Delvac desciple showed me that it was by far the best lubricant, I guess you can say, he opened my eyes. He also warned me of the dangers of using an aftermarket airfilter. Hallaleuha!

I've been on other forums where the moderators deleted insensitive words. So may I suggest that Fred just delete "Oil", "Air", "Filter", and "Laminar Flow" from this forum! Then we won't have to worry about offending anyone! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

MaryP, thanks for bringing that up. it seems at the last GTG at Hondo's a certain unkowledged individual thought it upon himself to razz me for his actual stupidity on this matter of laminar. so below is a pic of an article that i have just found in Road & Track that should somewhat help set the records straight, although, you can lead a horse to water but it is still as dumb as a mule [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

i also have another article from a car magazine that describes the air directly after the MAF screen as Laminar but i will be dang'd if i can actually find it, may have hit the recycle bin already [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] (call me a hippy [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] )

Quote:
When fluid flows smoothly without vortices or other turbulence, the flow is called LAMINAR. Typically when a fluid is flowing this way it flows in straight lines at a constant velovity. Water flowing smoothly and slowly from your faucet can show laminar flow. If the water hits a smooth surface, a circle of laminar flow results until the flow slows and becomes turbulent. Click the button below to see this.
