Did the oil change with 10W60. PUt in a K&P stainless steel oil filter, and changed my 2 micron bypass oil filter as well. Good to go.

Be careful with the K&P StSt oil filter.
The claim it has higher flow rate due to initial lower resistance to oil flow is misleading since it has no depth filtration capability, all impurities collect on the surface thus oil flow restriction increases much more quickly over time compared to paper element.
It is a not a filter to leave in car without regular inspection on high mile oil change intervals.

Good call on bypass filter, it eliminates problem of water in oil, due highly absorbent media.

But again if motor has condensation issues due to oil not reaching 110+ C temps, it will need replacement much sooner than advertised.

even a half hour trip or more in winter driving will not burn off of combustion by products vapors.

could never get my oil temps to 210 degrees or better yet 220+ till i completely blocked off oil cooler.

That is when i finally stopped seeing traces of water in bottom of oil drain pan during my winter 1000 mile oil changes.

The hotter one gets the 10w-60 oil the smoother the s85 runs as well as better gas mileage.
Thanks for the insights, but I don't drive the car in winter.

1. Impurities> I would argue that the same is true for the paper filters. Impurities collect on the surface and oil flow restriction increases. Given that the stainless steel filter and the paper one have much the same configuration, I don't see how one would avoid that issue over the other. Since I do oil changes usually within 5K km (3K miles), I don't believe that there is any issue.

2. Lol. You keep coming back to that 110+ C temps. So long as my oil temp is around that 210F middle line, I'm happy. And it's always there.
