So basically the oil will stick to the bearings better? How long have you been doing this for?

Thank you for all of the input. I am switching to Rotella T6 tonight and will replace the sending unit for the oil pressure gauge.

lets just say that it makes bearing failure a very distant possibility even at 8k mile oci and the car driven VERY hard fully loaded in 100*F weather with the ac on....all else considered

and the m1 racing 4T is SM rated....so it isnt 'motorcycle' oil specifically

just like the T6 isnt diesel truck oil, specifically
