I run 10W-30 Mobile One synthetic and Purolator Pure One filters. The Pure One filters show some of the best test results out of any filter.

Discovery

Put in a spectre air filter. Was a bit hesitant to buy that over a K&N but the price was right so what the h*ll.

Also discovered the radio control buttons on the back of the steering wheel. Which is good because the volume on the head unit works for sh*t.

aftermarket ignition coil

I mostly installed an Accel afterburner ignition coil. I spliced in the primary ignition wires, ran the cabling along the firewall, drilled a hole through the firewall, grommet in the hole. removed instrument cluster and radio, set up the selector switch next to headlight switch assembly, routed wires though firewall and behind dash, but then failed to find a good source of ignition on power.

This ignition coil has a flip switch for street or strip. Off position for long duration spark (good for hills or towing) or on position for higher voltage. (good for high speed driving).

Does anyone know of a safe place to tap in the electrical wiring that is 12 volt hot only when the ignition is in the on position? The power on wire for the radio is a thin gauge wire, so I rather not tap in there.

Lol sucks here. I have to drive 5 hours to wheel, or run atv runs, or mud drag wicked trucks with twice my Hp. Lol.

I do not add anything to my oil for the simple fact that I like more oil in my motor than extra junk taking the place of oil. Fix the leaks and stop being a cheap bastid.
