    01. Engine oil, specs
    02. Gear oil
    03. differencial oil
    04. Coolant
    05. Brake oil
    06. Brake Pad
    07. Which petrol is recommended?
    08. Spark Plugs
    ....anymore? did I miss out anything else?

    01. Motul o Mobil1 - every 3-5k oil change
    02. Redline lightweight gear oil. - some ppl say it is too slippery for the synchro but s15 6 speed gb feels very notchy so forced to use ligther oil
    03. redline 75w90
    04.
    05. depends on how hard u drive ur car motul 5.1 or RBF 600
    06. endless or project mu
    07. -
    08. pre-gapped no.7 copper - change every oil change so didn't use iridium

    Oil sump - s15 only take if i didn't remember wrongly ard 3.5 -3.8l oil. my fren did 2 track days n lots n lots of moutain runs on standard oil sump n its fine ( with trust oil cooler though)

    my fren ran his s15 2 yrs on full turbo back exhaust + z32afm + front mount + oil cooler + power fc + hks evc + walbro fuel pump = ard 185 rwkw. didn't run into any engine problem. but sold the car at 65,000kms .
