:idea: What a novel idea ! Put in an inferior part that they KNOW with react badly with modern synthetics, blame the customers oil & say you should have "used our special-top secret oil" @ a stupid price......when all it is is cheap ass (in a monetary way-compared to full syn oil price) dino oil !!! :idea: Yes sir, some people call that good business practice, others, a Corporate Strategy. :secret: I call it "Losing". Cause' that's what they are doing. Losing customers, losing business & losing customer loyalty.

So I'll try again. No brand loyalty here. I'm used to flat tappet engines so have had ever decreasing options when it comes to zinc content so Rotella for my IH SV engines. I see people are using Amsoil, no Royal Purple, no Swepco, no BR Industries, some Penzoil, some Mobil, and still when you bring your truck to a oil change place they are drawing out of a big barrel of (place name of manufacturer here) that they swear by (insert best cost per barrel). I'm looking at running something that the shop can get local, that I can get local so I can carry a spare quart. I'll give the engine 10k and as it stands I'm only half a quart low at 5k (and I didn't check the first two weeks) so not thinking oil loss just break in.

You know what's worse about that with them, is you've got the same block in a few of the vehicles with different seals. Truck, Camaro, Corvette, and the first two will leak but they put a better one in the Corvette.

GM is the gold leader in how do we slowly ruin the brand with brilliant ideas like badge engineering. :lol:

Is there really that many people with obnoxious lifter noise?? Luckily that hasn't crossed my radar yet, no issues with Mopar or the Pennzoil that's been in since the original post.

And hats off to Scoutpapa....as much I love an IH V8 (pretty much the diesel of the gas engine world), I didn't know you could get one WITHOUT a tick 🤣🤣. Then again, I never owned a fresh one.

I hope somebody got some use out of this. Or not. Maybe it DID just turn into another bickering "this vs that" oil thread hahahhaha. Oh well, I tried.
