hmm the top sider oil extractor is an interesting idea; i did not know one could do that.

when i changed my oil it was pretty dark, i ran some spare oil from my friends 330 through my engine till the stream coming out of the bottom was gold again (then waited for it all to flush through and stop dripping), then filled it up w the castrol oil i got. I feel that if i used an extractor, all the contaminants/old oil would stay in the engine and it wouldnt be a complete flush..? maybe i should just change the oil more often haha

interestingly enough, the oil level never changed, but it did get very dirty (i waited 10k before this last one).
