    i got mine from ase engineering , very good quality, everything fitted up nicely, but the intercooler was a bitch becuase of the battery, u realy need to get a smaller
    battery to make the intercooler pipe fit past it, ive herd alot of people recommend the castrol 10w 60 but inst this to thick for an engine that was designed to take a 10w 30 -10w 40 oil
