    butt dyno, but what oil did you use? i believe stock oil honda uses is just dino oil, so if you put full syn in the car, im sure engine operate little smoother.

    Honda has a synthetic blend and also a full synthetic oil. Here in Canada all of the dealers I have seen only use the full synthetic oil.

    Of course it runs better after an oil change. The oil is brand new and the engine is lubricated better lol What do u think happens eventually if u neglect oil changes? Your engine seizes and good bye to your motor.

    Correct. At least the factory fill is a blend. When I did my first oil change I went with Honda full synthetic. No noticeable difference in mine after the first change though.

    It probably is putting out a little bit more HP. Synthetic blend can mean anything. All it takes is 1% synthetic, and it can be called a blend. Blends are one of the biggest scams out there.

    I bought a used Honda motorcycle that had only had Honda dino used in it since new. When I put in Amsoil, it ran incredibly better, as in more power.
