>They are? How so? Specific differences, please.The engines for the rest of the world are also built differently. It could even be something as simple as the gearbox being programmed with a bit higher shift points.
An LS6 may be built with bigger bearings than a smart, and/or may not be revved the same way.
Don't worry, I'll let everyone know if the smart blows up.......there are too many variables for us to say how things work for them as compared to a smart.
If you're operating the engine under "severe" conditions then more frequent oil changes are called for by the owners manual. No matter, Mercedes specifies synthetic oil for the Mitsu engine. No doubt it will run fine with dyno oil, but for how long? :wink:Now I am getting even more confused (between jwights chart & evilutions chart) LoL! Because if I can use a 5w-30 or even a 10w-40 then I can get those for a much lower price then do the change @ every 5,000 and be fine with that...BUT now what about semi-synthetics? I ask this simply for the reason that my local shop does a semi-synthetic 5w-30 oil change for $9.99! Now, I am not trying to be "cheap" (as I don't mind paying for confidence,safety and security) but since I will be doing a minimum of 500+ miles a week my oil change schedule will be a lot more often than most and being frugal/economical in these times is not the same as being "cheap".
