If you track the car don't use yellow stuff. It isn't engineered for cars this heavy. They brought out the blue stuff for track/street use on heavy cars. I have blue stuff and it works good on the...

The EPDM should last longer because it is made to be chemical resistant. Mine has been on there for over a year now with no problem. I'd probably replace it every 3 years to be safe. I couldn't find...

SCCA Track Night in America

Has anybody tried one of these? What did you think? I think I'll try one of these later in the summer but wanted somebody's impression. $150 for an hour of track time seems decent since most places...

EBC Bluestuff operates up to 900 C. Not sure about the yellow, but I think EBC says it isn't for heavy cars.

I think mine is 108 and it came with the adapter. Got a decent price on amazon. The pressure tank should be the same. The 108 is the number for the adapter.

I think the 1LEs have the ZL1 fuel sending unit and I don't think their LS3s are tuned differently than the SS. I I'd guess that you don't need to, but I'd wait for somebody else to chime in to be...

Got a reply from K&N's tech department. They say the bypass can also open when the oil is very cold (didn't say what temperature). Just thought I'd add that.

I was hoping somebody here knows what the oil pressure in the filter is when the pump is putting out 50 psi (any GM engineers?). I know it is much lower than 50 psi, but most oil filters have a...

I change mine before I put it away. Then I run it for a little while in the spring before changing it. Might not be necessary, but it's good piece of mind and not too expensive if you do it yourself.

Did you put it away with dirty oil? You should change it before putting it away because used oil can be acidic which isn't good for the metal. My opinion would be to change it without starting, but...
