A: You can overfill it to a point it will bog the engine down.

B: Going form a thin viscosity like 5W30* to something thicker like 20W50, will cause a loss in horsepower felt by the butt dyno.

C: An engine overfilled with oil can lead to many problems depending how much overfilled it is.

D: Switching brands with the same viscosity shouldn't be felt unless your a hypersensitive freak.
