FTE Perf - V10 + Paxton Novi 200 Supercharger
FTE Perf - Weird Thing happened after changing oil...

Subject: FTE Perf - V10 + Paxton Novi 200 Supercharger

I've installed a Superchip on my '99 F-250SD SC LWB, and have a Banks
Powerpack intake/exhaust kit on order, which will be installed within the
next few weeks. My Grand Plan is to finish the performance enhancements off
with a Paxton Novi 2000 supercharger designed for the V10.

I'd appreciate hearing from anyone with experience along these lines with
the V10, particularly with the supercharger.

Engine: 1970 351W with approximately 70k miles on it..

Just recently put in my 1964 F-100..

3000 mile oil changed.. has had Castrol GTX 20-50 in it since it's
rebuild 10 years ago..

I decide to put in Castrol Syntex BLEND.. 20-50.. new Tough Duty Fram
oil filter...

After putting in 4 quarts, starting the engine, letting the oil
pressure come up to 60lbs, and filling the filter, and listening to the
engine run quietly and smoothly as ever, I shut off the engine, check
the oil level.. 1 quart low.. as expected.. put in the last quart..

Restart the engine to check tranny fluid level.. now I have a knock.. a
deep base knock that sounds like it is coming from the lower end (like
rod bearings).. come up off idle and knock deminishes or goes away..
check oil pressure.. holding at 50 lbs....

Prior to this oil change, the idle oil pressure has always been around
10lbs at 650 rpm.. coming up to a minimum of 35 to 40 at normal driving
speeds with a hot engine..

Could/would going to a synthetic blend have worsend a problem that was
hiding behind the "normal" 20-50?

Guess I pull it back out and get the short block rebuilt a little
earlier than expected... have the heads ready to go anyway...

Is this strange or what???
