Been building motors for over 38 years and it is even more critical now with these motors coming pre-filled with full syn oil.

Yep! i havent been around in the performance world or automotive profession nearly that long but im around guys like you that have built and raced cars before i was born. my info and decision are not based on my own whim of a "good idea".
