So after years of talking smack about royal purple, I've been convinced to give it a shot.
I'll be at the track Wednesday.

For everyone who doesn't know Element Auto now carries Royal Purple 5-40W on their shelves also WIX oil filters.

Here's the thing you want to be using royal purple's HPS line of oils , it is going to have even more of an additive package that our engines like and need. Last I contacted RP directly about this the HPS line had 5w30,10w30,10w40 and 20w50 , a couple months back when I was on the phone with one of their techs they said they were considering dropping the 10w40 HPS line and add the 5w40 too it, I haven't had the chance honestly to follow up with that as of yet but if it does happen I may give it a shot

What's their HPS lineup supposed to compare to with the competition? Any blackstone lab reports to go with it?

Because I'm still not going to use their oil if all it's going to do is break down twice as fast and for a higher price like their other lineups. Much better oils with superior additive packages out there for less money.

Good idea. NO ONE can stand those headlights...

Speaking of plastidip, I plan on getting some cheapy side skirts and a front lip that'll be a boring plastic. I'll let you guys know when I get them and we can have a Plasti-Dip-Tastic Partay! YAYE!

Finally got around to posting pictures for my detail/correction. A lot of work went into this for me but it's made a huge difference and I can't stop looking at it each time I go into the garage
