Now take that oil change reminder sticker OFF too then you will have a total of 200 extra horses on tap! :idea:

K&N filter only adds HP if you put the sticker that came with it on the window.
I transferred the K&N filter from my previous Saturn ATX to my "new" Saturn MTX. Running it incognito. No sticker. No added HP.

No need for oil change sticker. My car has an Oil Life Monitor. "Change Oil Soon" flashes on the dash. I let it go past the 3k interval on my 2000 Saturn after 100k. 90% freeway driving (6k interval). Light flashed around 5.5k. Still ran strong at 219k. Got a coupe. Couldn't take ATX any longer and got the MTX car.

I'm not driving nearly that much on the freeway these days with my current Saturn. I'll have the oil changed at 3k just to keep the extended warranty people happy. Then spread it out longer depending on my hwy/city driving. I get-r-done at a Valvoline quick oil change place. Valvoline Durablend 5w30.

Why Durablend you might ask? I get a $7 Valvoline rebate on every oil change that brings the cost down to what the regular All-Climate goes for. Win-Win.

I had the "710" changed last weekend. Mailed in the rebate. I'll get a $7 check in 6 to 8 weeks.

Take the check to the bank and have the teller say "Well, well, sir! We'll need TWO signatures on a check THAT size." - Bill Engvall

Just don't let your BF drive the car or people will get the wrong idea.

A guy's wife at work sells Mary Kay Cosmetics. Nothing humiliates a man more than driving a pink car to work when his pickup won't start.

yeah but how often do you change your oil? why don't you stock up on it and resell it to SS members? :wink:

is Jiffy Lube crazy... you could turn around and sell that oil to everyone you know and it will cost them a fortune. there's no point to mailing it across the country, but it sounds like all I need to do is find someone who works at a local Jiffy Lube if they're all doing that. if I can get oil at a deep discount I might start finding other uses for it... hey I just suddenly remembered that I've always wanted to have a fried turkey for christmas :)

Oh, don't forget to add conflicting stickers, such as NOS, ZEX, and other nitrous stickers all on one car. People will think you have 12 different nitrous systems, so will leave you alone.

what are you talking about guys? Fake thread, psh yeah right. Those stickers are the most powerful mods you'll ever see. Especially when you put nismo stickers on your riced out CRX, thats good for like 80hp per. Don't take my word for it, just ask anyone.
