Yep, just saw that, 60k... well shoot, he doesn't even meet the 75k category LOL. I'd still hit it with that max life... can't hurt, and IMO it'* my fav oil. I've ran it in the past 3 cars, and it'* stopped the majority of every leak [F-100 used 1qt / 2days, to 1qt every 3-4wks. Bonnie used well over 1qt/wk, to about the same, just didn't leave a puddle of oil anymore. Duster had a puddle under her pretty quickly too.. now it'* nothing. Been 500mi, used nothing on the stick and it'* cleaner than any other motor I've ever had [oil colour... engine is pretty clean too tho].
As far as intake gasket replacement.. mine first went with a bang... and everytime I floored the car she'd pour out coolant smoke... but daily driving used barely any coolant. Then I replaced the intake gaskets and sandblasted all intake parts... man did that make a difference. Get the Fel-pro intake kit... best damn thing ever. Don't skimp on the gaskets... I've been screwed too many times with cheap gaskets.
