If your planning on doing a Autocross, or a Drivers School do the following..

Pull your dipstick out. Locate the dimple ABOVE THE LAST NOTCH.

Fill your crank to this mark....

I've been doing this for 2.5 for me.....When you finish a run, or Track session let your engine run for 3-4 minutes(Auto X) or 5-10 for the track. Otherwise your valve lifters will "stick"

Good luck,
A Certified CONEHEAD
