Are you running a sway bar? What does that look like? Also what are you doing for transmission and transmission mounts?

@cf6mech Will do! I am going to see if I can hold the engine from the top and drop the subframe. Take the oil pan off, check everything from underneath and modify the pan. Also going to ask a local shop about a tubular subframe to give me extra clearance all around.
You can hold the motor up and drop the subframe.. I did it to change out my cracked oil pan. Its a pain, because you have to take literally everything apart that ties into the subframe. ( I didn't, but it would have made the job easier if I had) But still better than pulling the motor.

I have about 1500 miles on the last oil change. Gone from full line on dipstick to the low line. Running German Castrol 0w-40. Saw this recommended by the Joe Gibbs guys as it has the high zinc content. Going to grab a quart of it until next oil change.

Texas Speed told me to switch to a 10w-40 to help with my oil pressure... I think I will just up to a 15w-50 as that is what they run on engine brake in. Was hoping to grab Valvoline VR1 in a 10w-40 or 15w-50. Neither are available. So just going to order Amsoil.

I need to get a catch can for the valley plate as well.

There is no reason you need to be running oil that thick.. Something is wrong.

15w-50 is a common oil used for stroker engines from what I have been seeing. Has to do with bearing clearances set. Engine has a few more months to blow up. I'm not taking it easy either lol

Pretty sure Traction Control is working to a certain degree. I have been noticing it for awhile now. Yesterday I had the traction off as it was raining and I wanted to do some testing. I turned it back on, traction light flashed and the car felt like it cut throttle for a second until light stopped flashing and went back to normal. Not sure if throttle or maybe brakes?? Anyway. Need to do more testing.

The vehicle really has no way to cut throttle unfortunately. Might be wishful thinking.

It's possibly applying brakes?

Possibly. I need to see if the factory traction control has control of the brake system.

Found a set of Hankook Ventus TD Z221 C3 compound in 285/30 and C7 compound in 295/30 for about $260 for the pair. Thinking about picking up the 295/30 set to see how well they work. They are 2 years old, but stored in a tire shop, so shouldn't be too bad.
