Oil System question from a newbie

Start oil threads here so they can be ignored and/or ridiculed by most of us (except for those hardcore few that live for that kinda stuff).

I'm with you on the spin-on filter, high flow oil pump and deep sump. At worst they do nothing, at best I'm getting a little more oil into the works with better filtration and more time before oil breakdown becomes an issue.
That's exactly the reason they increased the oil capacity, improved the oil pump, and put larger diameter pushrod tubes on the 2019s. To reduce thermal break down of the oil.

Yep, more oil, more heat dissipation, less oil breakdown, synthetic also a boost at high temps and nice start at low. All good.
