Mostly just because engine temps get so hot on the track the oil gets very thin and oil pressure starts going down. Plus built motors have larger tolerances so it's kind of a necessity.

I run 5w40 in the winter and on the streets/cooler weather. 15w50 goes in when I know I'm going to hit the track.

Yeah that was a while ago. Good times! Cam was part of my inspiration too. I still can't believe he tested the the 83-75 .91, 83-75 1.00, and the 88-75 all in one go.

Good thing I bought the 83-75 .91AR when everyone was saying 1.0 was the way to go

Hahaha that's crazy dude!! That's an awesome turbo and it's super loud in your videos!! Cam definitely has a passion for this, and has been a HUGE help to me and a lot of people.

Your ride is ridiculous now man, I can't wait to see what you do in the future. I'm def going to watch your thread closely!

Very noticeable. My turn in and entry speed on corners went up big time. Cut like 5 seconds off my lap times.

I'll bump this thread for the notorious neorex

Never met you and don't know who you are but you ought to get your facts straight. Did you come straight off from revscene or something because it's been a while since VIC has had someone who posts like you....

Anyway, you probably know who I am since you know I like to spend money on my car but I don't spend it where you think I do. Pretty much everyone on VIC knows I do all the work myself and parts come from south of the border.

Maybe next time you're at MPS, you can ask Dom about me

Good luck with the Dom 1.5 and meth tune. I'd buy a crawford aos to keep the motor happy. Just my 2 cents and you can thank me later.

Arthur
