    Good advice, no Fram filters. Wix/NAPA is the best to use.

    X2....make sure that if you install the remote system, you use different lines if it will be near any heat source. Depending on the location & how you route the lines, the kit lines given are JUNK. I relaced mine with 8AN lines due to close proximity of the headers. And yes, skip FRAM Good luck!

    I done the same thing to mine when I ran full length headers, it was still a pain for starter issue's and It is kinda a pain to get the oil lines to clear the flywheel too.. So now I run fenderwell headers and am much happier.

    Wheels up is great for show but slower as it robs forward momentum.AND it can be inconsistant as all getout as well as the danger factor of being out of control ! Unless ya have steering brakes :shock:
