I understand all of that ... but that still doesn't answer WHY you were running 87 all this time. Given that it doesn't matter whether you run 87, 91 or 93 why'd you choose 87? Because it was...

Absolutely correct. Properly maintained, modern engine like our LS430 engines, have zero carbon to 'blow out' but it's fun to open 'er up once in a while ... and I do!

My last oil fill was Mobil 0W-30. Still running it.
0W oil will flow better than 5W oil at cold temps. I'm guessing the reason Lexus didn't recommend it is because it didn't exist or wasn't...

He's running Win7. You probably have the XP-only version (like me). I happened to have an old rickety XP laptop that I installed it on and it worked. If you don't have one you could run a virtual...

You won't know if the used one you buy is good or has X number of miles left. It's a gamble and you have to price that gamble in to how much you pay for a used strut.

Yes I see this as well on my 03. They take a while before you can feel anything and even then they never really get very warm at all. In contrast to my 11 Subaru's seat heaters they really suck.
