Agreed!
Monitor the knock. It's always on the bottom right on my Accessport display. You never know if you get a bad tank of gas!
The stock bearings are slight. 180,000k and mine worn through the first layer.
Now running 10W40 oil for break in (EWG WFO).
I plan to run 15W40 for up to 15lbs boost. 20W50 for 22lb track days.
