Well both these additives work on loss of boundary lubrication, amd its (ZDDP) good as an anti-oxident also. What Amsoil do you use??

I need to figure out a new signature.

That's only if you buy one. If you buy 3 at once it comes out to $26.91 shipped, so that's $10 cheaper than if you buy 3 at autozone at once.

Jegs has the 1010 for $10. Stop paying so much for your filters!

I was looking for OEM filters (people seem to like these?) at performancenissan and they have this:

Long Oil Filter for VQ35 350Z.

Other Applications include 2000+ Sentra, 1998-2002 Altima, 2002+ 2.5L Altima, 1994-1999 Maxima, 1998-2003 Quest, 2001-2003 3.3L Xterra, 1999+ 2.4L Xterra, 1998+ Frontier, 2004+ Titan, 2004+ Armada, 2004+ Pathfinder
Some say this is a better filter to use, but some say the filter element is better in the 65F00. So here are your options.

TWO filters for $10.00
What's the pro/con on using a larger filter?

I never smile if I can help it.
Showing one's teeth is a submissive signal in primates.
When someone smiles at me, all I see is a chimpanzee begging for its life.

No cons

I bought Red Line manual tranny fluid from www.HRPWorld.com. I imagine any of the major online performance parts resellers will carry it.. ie. www.SummitRacing.com, www.Jegs.com, www.JCWhitney.com, etc.
Red Line's website might have some links too.

I need to figure out a new signature.
