Anyone else running synthetic oil? which brand? I am partial to Mobile1 but open to suggestions.

Before I change the oil I'm going to have a sample analyzed at the SOS lab at my work to look for problems. With 210,000 miles I should probably start keeping an eye out for a replacement with less miles.

Going to do a compression test also, What is acceptable compression on these?

I haven't looked for it yet but where might I find a port to tie in a mechanical oil pressure gauge?

Thanks in advance!
