idk if anybody else notices it or if its just in my head. when i get close to the 3000K i feel my engines performance decrease. then i change the oil, its feels completely different, performance increases! am i crazy?

yes. plain and simple... you have let the mass media brainwash you... next they will take your soul

edit: i dont notice any difference at all in mine, i usually change at 5000 (went like 6300 one time...oops) intervals with conventional but now im using synthetic so ill probably be changing a little closer to 6 or 7 thousand... and i drive at least 60 miles a day

Mine idles a little crappyier <--- i like that word.

But honestly if your changing every 3000 you shouldnt feel as much as a difference as your stating. Like skizzo said... it's all in your head bro.

LOL 40 miles a day... newb!:lol:

When I did delivery... forget it man. Easily 200+ a day. But I was making some good $$ and didn't really care. Now I do around 75-100 a day since i'm working in two different towns and my girlfriend lives like 20 miles from my place.
