    So here's what's been done so far. Did the intake, tune and bov yesterday, sorry didn't take any pics under the car. Today I installed my radio I was trying to sell. Just couldn't take that factory unit, but this is a little big, blocks some vents. Also put on my hp boosting stickers today.

    I still run it in mine, because old and don't care (both the cars and me), but I've heard it's been reformulated at some point in the last few years, and allegedly not for the better I guess.

    I personally have nearly always run Valvoline. Which Walmart carries. I did run Rotella for a few, but switched. They have Royal Purple on their website. Not sure if they carry it in store or not

    Valoline and Pennzoil Platinum are good oils for the FA20 motors. EJ’s still like rotella oil.

    Well changed the oil today, good news it looked clean. Also installed a MAP Axel back and boy does it sound good now. Kinda dig the sound of these fa20s now.

    Also has anyone had a issue with a ots tune from MAP? I got the stage1 for there intake and when I start the car it wants to idle really high, almost hits 3krpm sometimes, also has what feels like a misfire at first too. It all settles down after I drive for a bit. And another issue I'm having with it is that sometimes when I get back on the throttle it surges, and there is always a delay on throttle response.
