Regular Maintenance you can do yourself

What kind of regular Maintenance can you do yourself on the car before summer?

My car is at about 93,000 KM's it had a brand new tranny and clutch put in at 88,000 so no need to worry about the tranny.


What do you guys suggest I do before summer rolls along? I intend to track a lot this summer so I would like to do everything I can to be safe and keep the car running well. I do Oil changes every 10k as of right now.

New tranny under warranty, or you had it rebuilt?

Garage List
Get a nice set of oil coolers and an FMIC to keep her reliable. Otherwise she'll heat up on you very quickly and it'll be big trouble....

Otherwise oil change every 5k km since you'll be tracking a lot.

Just make sure everything is running right and connected properly. My plumbing at the CP side popped off one time and caused boost leaks like crazy until I saw it had come off.
