    You should also pre-fill the oil filter and crank the engine over without fuel until the oil pressure light goes out.

      When I do oil changes I crack off the oil cooler pipes also and allow the oil to drain from the cooler too. It holds around 500ml's.

        Yeah it took an hour but ...who am I kidding, I will jack the car up next time and grab the filter from the bottom.
        you should do it the gravity way... when you drink your coke with a straw you can't get it all at the end , right ? the same happens with the oil in the car using a system like that.

          Is M1 15w-50 still the preferred choice for the S14, or are there other oils that you guys like as well? I'm in the midwest, so the climates change all over the place.

            Lastly, I run a wire from pin 7 to the shock tower bolt. Resets service interval w/ all green.
            the winningest racecar ever.

              Well done for adding this! Some people still buy the service reset tool or even worse, pay some shop for resetting the lights when a simple wire will do.


              For safety you can add a small fuse to the wire just in case you miss pin 7 [peace]


              Goodbye M3, you served me well.

                i realize i'm reviving an old thread, but how do you guys with the carbon airboxes get to your filter from the top? i just got my cf box a couple months ago, and i'm planning on changing my own oil. i dont really wanna take the whole box out to remove the filter everytime im due for a change

                      Basically an adapter that spins on in place of the oil filter, two oil lines, and a remote filter mount. There are many kits available, I got mine 2nd hand from someone here on the board... My Oil filter is now located above the ABS pump on a custom bracket...
