    I believe that would be heavier when warmed up and warm(40 vs 30), and lighter when the oil is cold (0 vs 30).

    edit from the future: meant 0 vs 5

    Amazon. I have a Prime membership, so the "one day" shipping only cost me $3.99 extra and should guarantee Friday delivery. The free two-day wouldn't have arrived until Monday, strangely.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    That's weird, I just ordered it using Amazon prime and it said I should get it by Friday, free 2 day prime shipping...

    Not everyone who changed their ccv faces this issue, I know quite a few people whose oil consumption remained the same...

    Must be the location of the warehouse. If I were to order within the next 21 hours, it's showing Saturday.

    Ah makes sense, I thought anywhere in USA should be the same shipping time...

    That's what I thought, especially considering USPS does special Sunday deliveries for Amazon (from what I heard).

    Are there any downsides with going with the M56 valve cover?
