Upcoming Mods for my M...

Well, since my car is being repaired as we speak...
I figured I would show you guys the next mods I am planning:

My next oil change will be a permanent one...switching to Mobil1 0W40, so I figured I would advertise it:



Now for some show and go on the coils...






What do you guys think??
More are in the works...





1997 Ford F150 Extended Cab 4.6AT

So why the 40 weight oil? I thought that would cause extra drag on the engine, and Mobil 1 doesn't viscosity shear nearly as bad as other oils.

PS: Nice Technics receiver in the pic... is that an SA-AX7xx series? I had an SA-AX530 (baby brother of the AX7xx), replaced with a SA-DA10 a year later for DTS/DD support.

ITEM NUMBER QTY ENGINE DESCRIPTION

8 5037 665AA 1 ESF CAP, Oil Filler

Part number from that should be: 5037 665AA



Price = $7.95 + tax
As far as the drag goes...
IIRC, M1 0W40 shears down to a really heavy 30W...which is fine.
Of all the oils I have tested in the motor, it has the best wear characteristics of any of them. Fo what I do with it, I can run it 7500 miles with no issues whatsoever!!

I have had that Technics reciever for 5 years now...
It is great for my computer based MP3 setup!!

I painted my coil packs back when I had the trep, to be honest no matter what I did the paint would never stick right and ended up looking bad after about 6 months

I don't know about your 0/40 cap shadow, but Keith's Mobile 1 cap doesn't seem to sit all the way down into the cap hole. Have you test fit it to see if it seats properly in the 3.5L hole?

I like the idea of painting the coils. Per JoeKD, keep us updated on how they retain their glossy look or if they smudge or whatever. I am assuming you and Joe used high temp engine block paint or caliper paint???

I haven't had a chance to test it yet as my car is still being repaired from the wreck. It is prolly the o-ring that is causing the issue.

I will let you know.

Buddy, chill out. I was joking, hence the smiley, and saying I want one too.

No need to negative rep me.

Sometimes...the humor of the moment can escape the reader (namely me in this case!!)
