    Preventative maintenance

    Forum Key Rings
    Hi all.

    My cars just being remapped overall I'm loving the increased torque and how the car drives. In two words... Different machine.

    Now to insure my car keeps the way it is I'm looking into things that would help keep it this way. So far I've changed the oil and filters and cut my service interval in half. From 20k to 10 k.

    Is there anything Futher you Guys can think off?

    Like swirl flaps or anything. Engine code is a20dte.

    Thank you

    If the car is 2009 to 2014 model with high mileage, look into changing the oil pick up seal in the oil sump. lots of insignias went to the graveyard due to this oil seal.
