So the engine is far from tired. What kind of reading are you getting from oil pressure?
This is a daily driver, not a wheeler. I have no problem pulling Vail Pass(10K FT) and climbing up to Eisenhower Tunnel(11K FT) at 70+ without having my foot way into the pedal. Both of those routes are 7% or more.
Oil pressure is right where it should be and compression is between 140-150 across the board.
It's not lacking power or anything like that but just making noticeable noise.
