Nope! No problems Use it for a regular interval and switch back to 30wt if you want.

I pray this doesn't turn into an oil discussion about 4.0's again

$47! What sort of expensive oil did you put in there? As prior poster said I don't want to turn this in to an oil thread as those get off the rails easy, but that seems pretty high.
