I would do that too if I had a 90 Escort to put it in.

Unfortunately the 90 Escort used more oil than I could supply from frequent synthetic oil changes. On the plus side, the Escort didn't need oil changes, since all I had to do was pour cheap oil in all the time. Why baby a practically free beater car?

Once again circumstances rule, and there is no primordial golden rule for this topic.
