The lap engine has a cam actuator on both cams intake and exhaust. These engine are very susceptible to dirty oil and improper viscosity. So tell him to put in and oil treatment 300 miles before next oil change if it's not overdue and to make sure he uses proper oil weight. Do not use 10W30 in a lap engine.
