Be glad to.... if you see me start to answer frivolous post, you know I am getting desperate for the countdown.
Or better yet, I could just Post "OVP" to answer all the post and get there real quick, while still having answered with the correct diagnosis 90% of the time ...

I really don't know how I lasted this long..many changes here..............

But I have commited myself to 10 Years/10,000 post, whichever comes first.

That's only 2.7 per day average if you never take a break, and you did 11 today so you can put your feet up for a few days ;-)

He needs nearly 2,000 more posts in the next 80-100 days. Thats a lot more than 2.7 per day!

More like 20-25 posts per day.

I'm nearing 10k and I have been here only 4.5 years.

What do you think of K&N filters Arthur? How about sythetic oils; which one is best and can I extend my drain interval? Should I use platinum plugs on my M104?
