how many miles is on yours? and we normally drive my daily driver everywhere we go, or her car, and most cars shows are within 15 miles from me. And the church I go to is having their yearly car show at the end of September its usually a really good show, and its don't by donations to enter.
61k, well you are a lucky man to keep it that cherry. I've used mine as a DD to work for a few years. Only recently did I get another DD to zip around in

Picked my car up today, had BBK long tubes w/ catted x-pipe installed, also changed out my BMR springs with Ford Racing P springs. I loved the looks of the BMR springs, but after doing the Power Tour earlier this summer, and wanting to do it again next year, my car was too low and a bit too harsh for 3200 mile road trips. The P springs only picked it up a bit, maybe 1/4" but they ride a bit softer and so far seem more to my liking. After installing the headers and x-pipe my exhaust is a bit louder but nowhere near obnoxious. It is still good at highway speeds, but man is it awesome when you get on it.

Pics of car as it sits now.









also swapped my shift knob again. I can't seem to find one I like for more than a few months. I had a black one with silver stripes, just like this one, but went with this Grabber Blue with black one. I'll see how long this stays.



I have a short video of my exhaust and will post it as soon as I get it uploaded.

Got it.

Just rolled 30k today on the way home. Also did my 10k maintenance, thanks to Jdos. The old oil probably could have gone another 5000 miles, but as hard as I am on it, it just seems like cheap insurance to me to change it every 10k.

Send your oil in for analysis at 10k and let them see where the tbn and viscosity is and that'll let you know how much life is left in it.

Making me want to switch to AMSOIL and whatnot. I did PM JDOS a while ago and asked about it. Not a bad price especially for the intervals you do them at.

It's about so much more than that, the difference in engine protection is astronomical. Amsoil at 15k miles has more life left in it than most "premium" over the counter oils do at 5-10k, it's pretty spectacular.

Old Premium Seats/brakets weight a total of 119.8 including everything. The new seats/brackets are 60 including everything.

I hope Im able to weight it in at the track this weekend. Hoping for some low numbers. Anything below 3400 will make me happy.
I haven't personally paid it any attention, but I don't think the have a weight station, scale, what ever you want to call it.

Just seen that this is the 7777 post in this thread! Where the hell is my prize!

This. At my 14k mile change intervals I still usually have a TBN of ~3.5 and a used viscosity of ~10.3 (Virgin viscosity is 10.5) so very minimal shearing over the 14k mile change interval. With that TBN of 3.5 It'd still be good for another 2500 miles or so but I never push anything to it's max extreme.

See above.

It'll be perfectly normal at 10k. I beat on my car, wear metals are always low. Unless the oil sees repeated, extended sessions of elevated oil temps then it won't vary much from how my UOA results look.

You need to pick up an Amsoil filter next go-round and run it 14-15k. The EA series has a finer micron filtration rating than the Wix's you've been using. They may be manufactured by Wix but there is a difference.
