I was having very random puffs. It was only upon startup, between jobs; never cold start. I think I had 4-5 episodes. But, the last few weeks, I haven't seen anything. Changed oil at ~12hrs to Rotella T and don't know what effect that may have had. I may switch to T6 (full-synthetic), at the next change. I want to ensure the rings have plenty of time to seat, before switching over.
