Ill be logging everything and moving back to a 5-20 AMSOil dominator (currently 10-30)

 

Oh, man, I don't think your oil cooler plans will spark nearly as much debate as this! I'm guessing that Acura specced a xW-20 oil for that motor? In which case, it should be fine. The Dominator oil is probably on the thick side, too.

 

EDIT: Yeah, HTHS of 3.1 which is really 30WT territory. It'll be just fine. I did this in the Miata, actually, with Red Line 20WT racing fluid.

Good to hear.... I think. That's good it won't spark a high debate on this. Actually a relief. IMO.

I'm not an oil junky so I can't say one 5-20 is thicker than the other so I'll take your word on it.
Yes, my engine is specs for 5-20 /alt10-30 per Acura.

It's one measure of how "strong" an oil is. I won't pretend to be an expert on oils, so here you go: https://commercial.l...of-engine-oils/

Well, I had Jury duty yesterday and used the remaining of the day to be productive.

Installed my Chase Race hitch on my S2000.

I picked it up used about a year ago and finally got around to installing it.

Very nice. It's amazing how much more flexible things get when you get carry a second set of tires along with you.

Haha! Yes they are. I have a couple ideas for my next wheels. But it will probably just be a 9.5" wheel or something.
2pc or 3pc wheel. High offset. Single step lip.
Shiney shiney shiney. Lol
