cold is the only way, give the oil plenty of time to drip into the oil pan. the ten minute rule does not allow oil to drain into the pan totally imo
No worries, your engine your rules.
If you want, write a letter to the people that designed
the engine, the people that built
the engine, the people that market
the engine and the people that warranty
the engine and tell them that you know better than they do and their
procedures are totally wrong.
I think it's stupid as hell the procedures they state, but kinda like I said above; their engine, their rules. I want this silly engine design to last until I get rid of it, so I follow their rules. I haven't lasted well over a half century on this planet by constantly trying to prove my way is the right way.
I get that you're saying this tongue-in-cheek, but you may mislead the new owners...
