Yes, I am preparing the car for a DE/track day event. However, it is still my daily driver. I am trying to understand how much I need to do to not blow a motor, and how much said modifications will affect the daily usability of the car. RE 160degree thermostat: how will this help on track since the standard thermostat is fully open at 180 anyways, all this does is speed up the opening?
Is an accusump really necessary for occasional DEs? This car sees mostly street use and AutoX where it is my understanding that oil starvation isn't as much of a problem?
I am starting to prepare my car for a track day at Chuckwalla valley raceway at the end of the month, and I was told that the car as it sits has oiling issues? My car is a 2003 Carrera. I bought the car last year with 74k miles and immediately did the following: LN IMS bearing, Waterpump, coil packs, spark plugs, all filters and fluids, clutch + flywheel and a stock AOS. In anticipation of the event, I am going to do an oil change from M1 0w-40 to the Joe Gibbs dt40 oil suggested by Jake Raby along with fresh filters. Is there anything else I need to do to not have oil starvation? Is this issue blown out of proportion? does the 2qt sump extension make that much of a difference? will it affect the streetability? I am running 200tw tires.
