'they say' baby oil is a cheaper alternative.

25k on this transmission oil. not bad on the fuzz.

I changed it a 5 and it has 30 now.

Researched tire options for the new BRZ that is arriving soon. Plan is to mount new AS-3+ Michelin's.

Custom revlimiter center cap inserts for RPF1 wheels. Found the caps on eBay and commissioned Adam to make center caps inserts for them. I wanted an OEM+ look and he took it a step further and got a hold of an Emblem and matched not only the colour but the little checkered pattern of OEM emblems.

Hit him up as he now has the file on Subaru Emblem Blue OEM emblems and can make any insert for any size cap. And these aren't just stickers... these are OEM quality inserts.

Also makes horn buttons and I picked up a couple of those as well.

Put it in quarantine. Throw out bearing stated squeaking last week. Not going to drive it until I change it, do not want to cause more damage. Never use the throw out bearing that comes with the ACT clutch. Ran across those posts about a week after I made that mistake.

Changed my oil @4500 as I had a mild track day on it and will have two next weekend. I donít have a sense of smell from a brain injury but my brother remarked he could smell fuel in the old oil. He asked his neighbor if that was what he was smelling to make sure and he could smell it a couple feet away. Concerning?

Also did these.

Finally got around to installing the rear pads and rotors while I was putting on the winter wheels. 62,000 miles on OEM and the outer pads were just about down to metal. Did the fluid (RBF 600) and fronts in the summer, both sets are StopTech sport slotted rotors with StopTech Street pads. My review...Meh.

Would that be caused by blow-by? Not something I know much about.

I hope not. Reading through the forum I saw others who experienced that on their cars first oil change. I did the break in period per the manual. Hopeful that the ring seals are all competent. Iíll watch after this weekend at the track to gauge smell and oil consumption.

@JeremyR and I installed my Defi oil pressure gauge with a Block8Head vent pod. Install was mostly smooth. Had some small issues with fitment of the pod mostly because of the gauge cables not being the easiest to route, but some DIY widening of the access hole in the pod made it work out .
