after some more pulls / logs i left timing almost same as before, when i raise it i start to hear little ping noises from headphones.

Valve terrain is lout as **** especially on cylinder 3, so i turned gain on 3 about 30% down so it wouldn't **** up my threshold, everything else looks solid to me.

My body was changing oil on his 2011 sti today and showed me interesting test with oil Russians do.

You pour oil in metal spoon and start to heat it up with lighter, and some interesting things came up:

1. Castrol 5W50 started to smoke crazy and started to boil quick and then turned all dark.
2. Schaeffer Supreme 9000 "green stuff" did better was holding up for loner but still smoked bad.
3. Eneos was the best, took long time for it to start boiling and almost dint smoke at all!

This test might sound stupid to you but i trust it more than all the online sponsored tests
