It is the Flywheel Vent Protector plate. It is on the bottom of the engine block. Lots of people just remove it completely, but i just bent it down to clear the flywheel.

Cool thanks mang.

Ordered a competition stage 3 and picking up a act streetlight tomorrow morning from Layvon.

Needs to be in the car tomorrow at some point. So I can get some break in miles in the next week for Grattan!

Oh and high speed autox is on the 2nd. Everyone should come out.

You will hit 110 on the straight.

Oh and what up Chris! Lol

What did you pick up? Still got the blue Beast?

I use subaru filters, their good, cheap and you can buy them in a pack of 6 with replacement drain plug washers.

I buy my T6 from meijer its ~$21 a gallon.

I've heard that running oil that thick in N/A cars is a no-no.

Also, NAPA Gold filters are what I use, exclusively.

Gross not even picking on you...

Put rotella in at a normal oil change place and bring the oil and filter with you (what we do)

I rather hear the owner tell me he puts only t6 in the car than say oil was changed by the dealer.

So why would using T6 be bad on my car? I just would not like to have a repeat of my oil problems again.

Turbo cars tend to run hotter, T6 is heavy duty and is typically used for diesel applications and matches well. I suggest any brand synthetic with the correct weight required by subaru for your car. 5w-30 if I were to guess. I think Subaru says 0W-20 for N/A cars but that seems awefully thin.

I think it's the new FA abd FB engines that like the 0-20. I'm with Josh though, stick to synthetic and the factory oil weight suggested.

If he doesn't mind paying for it and can find a dealer he trusts (definitely don't go to the "quicky" 10 minute grease monkey places), who gives a ****? However, Gardner I do suggest bringing them your own oil. Don't think any of them carry T6. If you do it at a dealer, a subaru OEM is a perfectly fine filter. Otherwise I suggest using the gold Purolator Pure One filters.

Going r180 thanks to lenger racing and Ryan for dropping everything to get my car done for tomorrow!

They have defiantly turned around from my one bad experience.
