New engine in and running

Hi all,

I got my bird back. Wow, night and day. Lets start by saying old engine oil pressure gauge on dash read lower than what it should of. New engine oil pressure gauge is where it it should be. car rums smooth and as for power, butt dyno says about same. The check engine lights are eliminated because engine now has egr system in place. I love my bird. Going to change oil back to synthetic 5 20 mobile 1 with lucas oil stablizer. My buddy uses lucus and swears by it. Any how any thoughts. Engine was replaced with used engine @ 59000 car had 57678 not a big deal. 3.8 naturally aspirated. Couldnt go bigger as wallet would not allow
