I don't know. By no means am I doubting the results of the study, nor do I ever doubt JPR, but I beat the living snot out of my motor. Almost 125k miles on it, and it pulls like the day I bought it. I've replaced the gasket seal twice and did the VANOS seals recently too. Everything looks and is near perfect...no sludge/carbon buildup, and all 6 cylinders pumped out near perfect #s in a compression test. My oil's been changed between 3-6k miles, and I have no doubt I'll get well over 200k miles out of it. While I understand and respect the test, I don't think I can be persuaded to change my ways. Not because I think I'm right and they're wrong, but just because what I've been doing works fine for me.
