Fresh oil & filter

Apr 21, 2011 update on P71's 1986 Porsche 944

The 944 also got treated to an oil change. That filter location berkleying SUCKS!!! I had to hammer-and-screwdriver the old one out. No matter though, as the new K&N filter has a 1” nut welded on it, which will make the next change a snap. The oil is 20W50 Valvoline VR1 Racing Oil by the way, for it’s high zinc content to protect the 225,000 mile engine (rolled over on the way to the autocross!).

As a side note, with the new tires I learned that even my low-profile HF racing jack doesn’t like to fit under the car any more. Suggestions?
