    Excuse me while my leafsprings get better times on the Nurburgring than many European sports cars (ZR1)

    Edited:

    Plus they're not conventional leaf springs as you might think.

    Welded a crack on my manifold, reinstalled it, ran a downpipe and high flow cat back to a resonator and then realized I need some solid mounts.

    A skyline cheaper mthan an AWD converted 240?

    Maybe if it wasn't a particularly nice Skyline... Or an R32. Actually, you know, I would not even mind an R32, I don't even care if it's a GT-R. I was always a sucker for the R32's body style.

    A full GT-R drivetrain, plus labor, plus miscellaneous parts needed to make it work. Definitely above $15,000

    hell, a RB26DETT alone goes for what, $6000-$7000?

    Changed my oil. Only had 2,900 miles on the fully synthetic but it's winter and takes a boatload of E85 running extremely rich to get my car started in the morning. E85 is more corrosive than regular gasoline so I'm playing it safe.

    Mobil1, Amsoil, Royal Purple, Valvoline. They're all good. Brand name isn't as important as making sure you use the correct weight oil for your application.

    Why use a skyline drivetrain? If I was on a budget I'd make anything work. I don't care if I had to chop up a Subaru Legacy >____>;; Nobody said nothin' about it being a Nissan-heart 240 AWD swap.

    I've heard great things about Amsoil but I think you've gotta call and place an order. Putting 5W-30 in because we're in the middle of winter.

    Edit: The only thing stopping me is what could be a stripped drain plug. The homos over at Valvoline had to put in a different plug which would lead me to believe they fucked up... as usual. They gave me the original though.

    I'm using Mobil1 in the same weight with a Mobil1 filter.

    Royal Purple 5W-30 for me I believe. Was going to get a heavier weight but wasn't sure about weights when I got oil and plus good thing as the winter here in Florida got into the low 30's for a good part of winter. Oil change coming up, probably going to get a bit thicker, maybe 15w-40

    Yeah for Florida you should definitely run something heavier. It really gets down into the 30's there?

    Apparently got down to 14 degrees in the panhandle or something.

    And not just 30 degrees in central florida, it got to 36 in MIAMI.

    Grandparents said it reached about 42 in Punta Gorda.

    Probably going to end up running Mobil1 with a Fram filter.

    Grandparents said it reached about 42 in Punta Gorda.

    Probably going to end up running Mobil1 with a Fram filter.
    Don't run a fram filter, they are horrible

    On a friends 90' bronco, the engine was cutting off, but not on idle. Short story, we linked it to a bad thermal sensor. Basically, it was dumping exhaust into the engine.
