Woody at Fordstrokers.com I believe provides warranties. He has a really good reputation from what I've heard. I'm not sure whether he gives discounts to forum members or not.

I run Amsoil these days, I think the newer Rotella T keeps getting the formula changed and isn't like the older stuff.

In addition to the above, what oil pan are you running and what heads?

Stock oil pans can run low in high performance applications if the heads have poor oil return passages.

You need enough yoke sticking out so that when the suspension compresses and the yoke slides in, the radius of the yoke doesn't bottom on the seal. You have way too much yoke sticking out in that...

Turbo cars are more notorious for burning fuel in the headers, since they run so rich to prevent detonation. I've seen older stock turbo cars with cast iron headers get them to glow a bit in the dark...

Not always, too rich can make the headers glow too as you burn off the fuel inside the headers. Also, glowing headers isn't a bad thing depending on the situation, a really high performance car on...

Do you drive in cold weather, or only the summer or someplace it's warm year round? How much do you want to spend? Is noise and comfort more important, or treadlife, or performance?

You should be fine with studs on only 2 main caps...that said, for uniformity, it'd be a good idea to go all stud. As for torquing them, ARP calls for hand tight, so just thread them in and then snug...

Probably a result of quality or installation. I'd never run any electric pump other than a Meziere. Same thing with fans, low quality fans won't last long. Cheap crap electrical anything will fail...

True, but at least it's separate from the pump shaft bearings, so if it goes out it doesn't ruin the pump at the same time. I do like that the Mezieres are modular though, and you can replace...
