Latest consumption report and UOA:

In the S2000 I'm now down to 1qt/1100 miles

UOA (Amsoil XL) showed excellent wear metals and Blackstone suggested I go from 7000 OCI to perhaps 8000 but i think I'll just stay at my 7,000 mile/2x year routine that I've had for years...the OEM filter seems to have a sweet spot of 6-8,000 miles anyways...

Do the math, I add approx 6qts back to the engine, which is crazy! I'll be happy when this F20 dies...hahah. Compression is relatively low, 175, but it's consistent across all 4 cylinders. I haven't performed a full leak-down in 75,000 miles, so that's on the "to-do."

The UOA for my Civic Si was excellent though! I'm running Amsoil SS and my OCI is 14000 miles with a filter change (OEM) at 7K. Blackstone suggests I go to 16K! Maybe I'll split the different and run 15,000 miles.

The Equinox (Amsoil XL) looked excellent at 12K. Blackstone suggested I stay at 12k, like I have for the past 100,000 miles on that car...

The push mower running amsoil is a champ too! That thing has lasted 12 years and starts on 1 pull!

Got another Blackstone report on Monday, this time with 18 hours of track/race abuse on it, 1/4 quart make up during that interval. Based on this and prior results, they recommended a 30 hour interval next. I think I'll stick with 18-20 hours which is 5 race weekends.

Im mis-shifting a lot, going into 2nd instead of 4th. I havent had an issue at all until the past 3 or 4 events and the majority has been on straights and the last time was back to back like I couldnt even find the gate. I have an innovative trans mount arriving today. I hope it solves the issue because Im becoming gun shy upshifting into 4th and its affecting my times. This happen to anyone else?

I'm in need of upgraded motor, trans, and diff mounts. Watching my videos from 2+ years ago and others in general and comparing that to mine now, the deterioration in shifter play is noticeable.

My transmission has developed a grind going from the top of 3rd into 4th. Every other gear at any RPM is fine

Check fluid level. Mine has a similar grind under certain conditions on track and I found adding a little more fluid seemed to help.

I'm hoping for a meet in Raleigh or the surrounding area in the near future. I missed the cars and coffee this past Saturday because I was out of town. If anyone has a listing of events coming up, I'd love to get those details.

Set it up.

S2000 meet and greets are very rare these days. The car changes hangs so fast no one knows whom even owns an S2000 anymore, haha.

There's a big cookout in Charlotte this coming Saturday.

I'm a big fan of any lunch at Merritt's...
