Im running 330bhp and 300 torque in a bugeye. I know this is not an ideal amount of power to run through a 5 speed on a track but im thinking that the box is fresh so should hopefully handle it if treated with respect.
Im hearing differing opinions on which engine oil to use also so any info regarding all appropriate performance fluids to use on track would be awesome please.
Im also fitting the following parts to begin with then hopefully getting out and having some fun. Would anyone advise brands of these parts to use or suggest any extra bits to fit?
Thanks in advance to the Scooby gurus!
