    read up on amazon oil contents and compare that to GTX. I forget where but somewhere on the internet is a website that you can compare oils side by side. I switched over to amazon synthetic in the LS and haven't had any issues yet. The oil is still clean compared, the GTX would have been dark by now.

    [edit] found the link today.

    Guys, them are some mighty fine engine bays! I do have 1 constructive criticism tho....the master cylinders need a coat of paint as they kinda stand out right now.

    Realized that I never posted a pic with my tuned dash.
    Anyone who says you need LEDs to be able to read the gauges I'm calling bullshit...LOL.

    Nice looking gauges! Just curious though, that's not idle oil pressure is it?

    Lubed the lower Speedo cable - as in, unhooked it from the cruise , unhooked it from the transfer case, pulled it out, and oiled it 6 or so inches at a time as I put it back in .

    Driving her tomorrow to work for a road test.

    Plus, 40% chance of rain tomorrow , and playing in heavy traffic with a manual (Cobalt) can get old.

    At least it is a hydraulic clutch ...
