80% STP Oil Additive and 20% SAE40. Kept my Chevy Vega running for 55K. Don't get mad, it was a joke (much like the Vega)

Depends ...Does the project bike have an O-Ring chain? If it does the moly will never get inside the link bushings and so no real benefit. O-ring chains need the O-rings to stay slippery and not dry and wear out. This will keep the prelube SEALED ins

IIRC, WoO which is 410, is 1400 lbs. The wings help hold the cars down a lot as well. IMO a rally car wouldn't even be in the modified range. 2 completely different designed suspensions for their racing applications.

Cabin Air Filters
Jump to new posts Re: Finding air flow direction by Jetronic @ 08/22/16 01:55 PM

Either is possible. Sometimes the cabin filter sits in front of the fan (Hyundai uses this setup) so the cabin filter also works while using recirculated air. On my car the filter sits deirectly in front of the evap core though.

I'd call them up and fix the information. Make sure you tell them it's Delo 400LE otherwise they flag the additives, they did the same thing to me. I'm starting to think Delo isn't very good for long runs. It only has a Tbn of 8 to begin with.

Depends upon what vehicle and what corners are getting cut. But I'd expect any sort of quality job to be past $600, upwards of $1k, since (usually) water pump and other parts ought to be replaced also.
