My conrod clearances were all around .0014" or .0013" (repair manual standard new .0013"-.0024")Are you still within the Honda specification of clearances?
Below are the clearances for the mains:
(repair manual standard new is .0007"-.0016" mains #1,2,4,5
standard new main #3 is .0010"-.0019")
So are you saying that the bearings don't see a significant hit on flow with the valve open?Once the valve opens, more flow is pumped around as is used for the tribological feed
I see about 92psi or so around 5k right before vtec (fully warm)If your engine goes well above 90 psi I would be concerned about the oiling system.
I see up to 100psi at 3k rpm when cold (55 or 60 deg F)
So besides being inefficent, is there any real cause for concern given the info I've just provided? Amsoil is too expensive for me as my daily but I may try it at my next oil change as an experiment. I assume running a cheaper (mobil one) 5w30 is better than running mobil one 0w20 given the circumstance?
