    Uhm, ya, sounds like you missed geography class but we have PLENTY of mountains out here in the Pacific Northwest with nice long mountain passes to use.

    But you would think that "load" would mean more fuel is being dumped in, I would think just high RPM would be effective too...

    Uhm, ya, sounds like you misread my post. I said MI is flat...

    lol

    So... is it better to do the Italian job before oil change and do not worry about OCC, or have OCC anyway?

    Sorry man, didn't misread anything, I was just teasing you about the "Not sure about WA" part, we definitely have plenty of mountains in OR/WA, and I know that it's the UP in Michigan that has the mountains, but no love from you on our geography out here, whats up?

    But ya, it looks like Tork is right: They claimed, like I mentioned in my catch can thread, and are proving in this video, that the breather side catches more stuff, and that's what I want to do is keep gunk out of my intake and IC... I think Italian Tuneup would blow stuff out the tailpipe so it shouldn't matter for the oil with that, in fact the oil itself get cleaned that way on long trips, hence why you needto change your oil more often if you take mostly short trips.

    Heading out on Monday the 12th from Calgary to Vancouver,Victoria,Ferry to Seattle & back home through Spokane.Will try to find a steep mountain climb to keep above 3000RPM for 20 minutes on route to blow the gunk out.My all stock 2014 Red Koup SX Premium has only 22600 KMs.Should I put Techron additive in on the highway or in city traffic?
    This should be a great trip for me & the car.
    Car has not skipped a beat since I got it & really like it.Only issue I have found is black carbon deposits on back of the car. Good news is I was told that means I'm driving it hard enough.

    Yeah, keeping my white GTI looking good was a pain because of all that gunk on the back coupling the natural hatchback vortex effect back there with the GDI emissions. A case where black is much easier to keep looking clean than white.

    I visited Michigan once, Detroit to be precise. I got scared and left. I thought Windsor was depressing. I heard there is like a homicide there ever day.

    I rarely see 5th or 6th when commuting. I know it's probably bad for fuel economy but Yolo!

    Car feels more peppy above 4k.

    I bet that's hoe v8s are like at low rpm grunt.
