My honest opinion on the E3's they are shit lol. My engine has burnt one out and cracked one down the the side. Idk what to change to but I like my mileage. And I always run full synthetic lol. But Idk bout e3s. And yeah the ITG filter is on our fswerks.

Yeah definetly do that. It could help alot! Yeah ITG comes with the FSwerks CAI. Make sure you reoil your filter when you change the oil on your car. Its just an easy way to remember to do it. lol

yeah, maybe i'll pick up synthetic at the next oil change. i have something like 1,200 miles til my next one. i change it every 2,600 miles or so, just to be on the safe side. i ruined 2 engines because of oil.

Well that would be a good way to do it! Would it be a midwing? Or more like an SVt spoiler that goes on top? Good luck with the job!
