    Changed oil with Valvoline VR1 20w50, 62psi start up pressure, 12psi hot idle. We're good.

      Almost makes me want to install an oil press gauge just to see.

      Almost.

          You will see the same. ;)

          I modified the oil pumps and reliefs so the race cars see about 90psi cold and 25psi at idle after a racing stint. Hot pressure is better with synthetics than dino oils. With a bone stock motor we would see 8-ish psi at idle after a stint with conventional 15w50 and 16psi with LiquiMoly 10w60.

            I've been able to stay billable with work, so that's good. About 20/80 Office/Home.
            That and I've been tacking a lot of house projects that have been needing to get done.

              I did install a new oil pump on the car during the rebuild.
              I'm also very careful about letting the engine get to temp before I give it beans.

                  Didn't george graves make an oil pressure gauge that was integrated into the cluster?? Are there any really clean lookin ones out there?

                  Also, super happy with the vibrant setup. It sounds amazing without being loud, surprisingly for a straight through

                    Yep, that's a "TRD" Camry, and it makes no more power, is no faster than, and weighs no less than a regular V6 Camry. It's a body kit, lowering springs, and wheels. On a Camry. Heck, it's not even faster than previous V6 Camry model years from what I'm seeing online.

                          Anyone ever rock the Firstone indy 500 tires?

                          Direzza 102s are on back order and these firstones had better reviews so I went for it.

                            We switched to BFG Rivals. Soooo sticky, even more than the Azenis 615+, Maxxis vr1, or any if the Dunlop series. DZ is still a decent tire, longevity is in the center of the listed.

                              I prefer the Sport Comp-2 over the Indy 500.
