I did the same with 2 screwdrivers. Nice job! You're going to love the way the car feels with the Banski kit! I have been racing on mine for about 8 years. Good stuff!

Aagin, it depends on the clearances and what the engine is designed for. I used to run AMSOIL 10W30 in my C4 back when it was a stock street car. I did have an oil cooler, and I always had good...
