I am not trying to start a fight, I just do not see what the fuss is all about.

I rebuild and BUILD engines and transmissions regularly. It is a hobby, but I do it a lot for myself and others. I have seen wear that could have been prevented with obsessive, or heck even regular, maintenance. I've seen blocks, cranks, etc become expensive anchors because someone was cheap or lazy.

Ive see the oil analysis people do, and I get it, but why do that just to see how long you can go? The analysis was originally meant to tell you if you had a good oil as well as how well your engine is wearing or breaking in. It was like getting a code scan, or heck even a dyno. To answer how are things? Now people have turned it into this contest to see if their oil will last longer. Blackstone should be ashamed. They are capitalizing on this fad when really the analysis is a tool...
How many modern engines have you built and rebuilt?
