    Re: AMSOIL updates

    Just the shipping to them. I usually ship it from the post office when I head down to the border, costs a couple dollars.

    Just get one an enhanced driver's licence https://www.ontario.ca/driving-and-r...rivers-licence

    I'm surprised by how few people actually have one of these or even know about them.

    Thanks for the link Nabs I was wondering where you send your samples to. I'll be doing this after next season for sure.

    Re: AMSOIL updates

    Redline is a dextron oil, not a lot of cars support dextron base oils as they degrade differently then other oil bases, just like how many euro cars specify they need oil that says it's recommended for their vehicle because of how the engine and piston rings are made, depending on the oil, they can wear out prematurly as a result of this. The same thing goes with tranny fluid with syncros which will make your gears wear making them brittle and eventually breaking off, like in my TL, says no Dextron, so typically running straight Redline would be bad, so I have it mixed with 3 quarts of Honda DW-1, 3 of Honda Z1, and 3 of Redline D4 making it some kind of OEM+ semi-racing tranny fluid. I changed the filter, gaskets for everything I removed, and the 3rd and 4th gear pressure sensors and now it drives like a dream.

    So I'm not bashing Dextron but Redline is known for it and people who don't read up on their engines and what dextron can do if improperly used end up complaining that their car broke after ignoring the fact that it says to never use dextron.

    I did not in anyway notice any power gains at all, just that the engine seems to be running a lot smoother. Less vibrations in the engine. But I think it's a combination of the quality of the oil and the fact that I went from 5W to 0W.
