awesome drive home!

ok i came back from mississauga this evening at like 4pm... MAN i had an awesome time driving back!!!

it started with me entering the 401 West.... well i get in and i see this black RSX on my ass... so i speed up a bit to 150 and hes behind... i switch lanes passing cars and hes behind me doing the same.

well to make a 1hour drive home short, basically the whole way there we were side by side hitting 180-200 a lot of times!!!

the best was on this straight stretch where me and him went at!! we were DEAD EVEN from 170-190 and at 200 i SLOWLY started passing him!! at 215 his front bumper was on my back bumper. i couldnt push more cuz of traffic ahead.

but all i gotta say is the drive home was AWESOME! i got home in like 50mins! new record

oh yeah the reason i was able to hit those high speeds and being side by side with him was because my cousin Sam cleaned my throttle body and changed oil (Mobil 1 synthetic)....

and when the hell is the limiter supposed to kick in??? at around 215 i was still able to go more!

Dd you just switch to synthetic oil? Iíve heard that itís not recommended to switch to Synthetic oil if the motor has higher mileage (above say 150,000). Earlier on, it's fine.

Iíve seen a few cars that started consuming oil just after switching to synthetic oil when the motor had 130,000KM or more after the switch. It didn't produce blue smoke though.

Check your oil levels more closely over the next few thousand KM if you just switched. I wouldnít want to see you run your engine without enough oil.

yea its been on sythentic oil since i bought it. the previous oil used synthetic oil too, he was the first owner and im the second owner.

but the throttle body was REALLY dirty, so after it was cleaned I really noticed the difference from acceleration and pull
