I guess I'm one of the few people who has self control when driving my STI ( 3rd one without issues).

Can't people just keep rpm below 3k and load below 0psi or just I'm vacuum when warming up the car? I see alot of people just WOT right after 30 secs of startup.

Why are you using 50 weight during the winter?

Im not it was one winter during the first oil change motor was broken in before i picked the car up, the shop i had work on the motor doesnt like thin oil.

I expressed myself to the owner at least once the temps here where hovering around 25-35, i just baby drove the car for about 10 weeks that winter till the oil change.
