Hey guys gotta question. My wife said she checked the oil and calmed that there was bubbles on the dip stick... The engine is not over heating or really heating up past normal at all, also the motor is running fine and strong so i think that the water jackets are good and awesome still. I believe this is a first gene motor, it has 57k on it. Any ideas??? Also, two days ago she checked it and added a lil oil to make it full, it wasnt but just a wee bit low from normal.

if it could be called 'milky' or 'milkshake', then that is pretty normal for 8s in colder temperatures, and isn't anything to worry about. If it is like liquid bubbles nothing like that description, then it could be something else. Coolant or significant water in the oil is a bad sign.

I'm guessing it's the standard condensation though.

Thanks, I'll have to have them run the vin when I get state-side. I know the first engine did it, but I never really paid attention with the new one as I knew it wasn't a real big problem.

Thanks! Next mod is HB headers, RB springs & sway bars, install the AEM CAI, MS side skirts, MS rear diffuser, tune with Cobb and Advan RS gunmetal.

However, with my s2000 and 240sx needing parts probably take a yr to get everything on it.....

Thanks, thats pretty much the direction I want to go with her car. But like I said, with Vacation, my cars, and wedding stuff comin up its going to take a while...

There is a SICK set of Gunmetal Advan RS on CL for 2300 right now, 18X9. It be a nice upgrade from her stockys. But thats a lot of dough right now so idk.


Neway, if you guess happen to know any good deals let me kno!

most oem rims sell for about 400 a set no matter which version they are. the r3 rims sell for the most though, closer to 1000.
