Yes it was a fantastic feeling when it started yesterday and it still is today. Frank, xbmwguy was over and he was there when it started and ran after reindexing the distributor gear too.
I changed the oil and filter today after only 65 miles on it. Why not, it's only a good thing and with the external thermostat, long oil lines and large B&B center front oil cooler in my car there's around 2 quarts of oil that stay behind.

I still have a bunch of Valvoline 20W-50 VR-1 non synthetic and synthetic oil I bought at Autozone 2 or 3 years ago when it went on sale for half price. With it still around I don't mind changing oil frequently. I stocked up on Mann oil filters a few years ago too.
There were no metal shavings particals or metal dust stuck on the two magnetic drain plugs either. Thats a good feeling too. This time I'll let it go around 500 miles before changing the oil again.
It sure is nice to hear it start and then drive it again!!
