Of course, this all comes at a price. And synthetic oil is about 3x more 
expensive than yar regular oil. Hence, the last time I changed my oil I 
did think about switching to synthetic. Apparenty, there have been 
reports (on the list) that synth. oil can make noisy lifters real quiet. 
Ever the sceptic, because oil additives never seem to fix this problem, I 
passed on using synth. oil. I'll just replace those damn lifters! Problem 

But does synthetic oil quieten noisy lifters? Does it??????
