You can just state that clearly, anyone that has had a failure? The Saab Racing team with 4 motors in a row? They switch oil and the failures stop even though all the engines are built in the same batch?

Crazy low oil pressure with mobile 1, that is fine? Different engines use different viscoisty, some need a oil like mobil 1, some have very small passenges, like the audi volks engines, they only allow a certain approved oil for their engines. The porsche engine may be one of those that needs a thinner oil, but for the Saab engine I would disagree, I have done my own testing and the oil pressure was way too low and once hot was well below what I would consider a safe oil pressure. For a stock car, its probably fine, for a tuned high performance "Saab" engine, I would be careful,
