I wanted to test a few to see what Blackstone Labs said about each oil being used in my car, so far I have results from Amsoil and Motul.

gotcha. no rush take your time.

did you wait until the second change with the same oil to send in your Blackstone tho? i know many companies say as much as 1 qt of the previous oil can line your internals/pan providing inaccurate results.

nope, emptied the majority of the oil each time and took the end of the drained oil for the sample.

Awesome build man. I love your reviews. I kinda use your car as a role model, what I would eventually want my car to be. Perfect blend/mix.

For your engine and transmission mounts, they are stock right? When I had only the HPA 75a, I still felt some engine movement that was eliminated with the SPM mounts. Minimal NVH increase, although the engine does sound louder/throatier.

Did you still have the SB stage 2 clutch kit when you installed the HPA?

Still have no NVH from the WALK? KW V1s in the plans or Bilstein shocks?

Nice car

Thank you very much! HPA puck with SB Stage 3 disk and WALK kit feel great. No plans for full engine mount replacements just yet. I may try the KW V1's as the next upgrade.
