^ I would buy the cold oil more than anything. Seen failures from OEM to solid mounts and everything in between.

With the pickup submerged and filled with oil it's fairly well dampened from engine movements.

Cold oil on the other hand, doesn't like to flow. Since these engines (specifically the rod bearings) are so sensitive to oil condition I recommend an oil temp gauge as the first most important gauge to own on cars with these engines. If you don't have a gauge, then wait twice as long as it takes for the coolant needle to stop moving (normal operating temperature).
