Back in the old days, (like more than 5 or 6 years ago), guys acted like they were amazed when "My car *finally* feels like it`s loosening up at 20,000 miles "(!). They were running the factory synthetic, and those damn rings never seated for all that time. Using dino, combined with a *reasonably* agressive break-in discipline, yields quick & efective results.
