A ZL1 diffuser with head shields would line up well with the flares.

Switched over to Mobil1 15w50 and needed a solution to get real oil temp / oil pressure / coolant. Bought a Racepak dash but needed more sensors to get the temperatures to show on the display. With 15w50, I have been waiting until the oil temperature is at least 180 before starting a drive, and at the very least 200 to begin accelerating over 3k.

During hard mountain driving, oil temp never exceeded 236 with outside ambient temperature at 100 degrees today. Coolant hovered at 200, and oil pressure did not exceed 63 under hard load. Overall content with having more accurate temperature readings. 15w50 feels great in my car. Engine idle is softer and engine bay is quieter. I will follow up with an oil analysis after a 1000 miles or so.


1 x Racepak 250-DS-IQ3 Display Dash
1 x Racepak OBD II V-Net Interface Cables 280-CA-EFIOBDII
1 x Racepak V-Net Connector Modules 230-VM-EFIUCAN
1 x Racepak Analog Pre-Programmed V-Net Modules With Sensors 220-VP-PT-OP150
1 x Racepak Analog Pre-Programmed V-Net Modules With Sensors 220-VP-TR-OIL
1 x CLS3OS GlowShift oil filter sandwich

OMP Superquadro with Racepak IQ3. Prospecting new shift knob and a radio delete as my knee manages to turn the A/C on often.

I really like how your car is coming together! Seeing your setup makes me think twice about having bought 19x1.05 EC7s rather than the 11s.

Your wheel/tire setup with coilovers should pair nicely with the driving roads I usually go on. I'm starting to outgrow the strut and drop spring and am prospecting the opportunity for more adjustability. I'm only able to get about -2.5 front camber with the current configuration.

This tire/suspension combo is very happy on a back road and at an autox, now it just needs more power and 3.91s/a helical diff! How much more camber are you looking for? -2.5 up front has worked well for me so far.

I would like to play around with -4.5 or so. 325/30/19 with Apex wheel offsets combined with drop springs only allows me so much. It is a great compromise as I am able to extend the life of my RE-11s and still have a stout alignment for any occasion.
