Very little oil filter clearance (I have the 'oil cooler' between engine and oil filter.), and when it's hot outside I sometimes have a oily smell, but never any problem. I lost some torque after install, but I got that back...even more than oem...after installing the Invidia catback. (Never expected that. I was expecting even less torque.)
It's because of this being the newer EJ203 2.0R engine with DOHC and AVCS.
The AVCS adjusts the camshafts to get more peak power when revving up high.
Yeah I remember when your order went in it was a big deal like "whaaaa International recognition"!!! Hey im sure your vidz will only help to keep his wait times longer than expected
