You should never skimp on safety gear. After all, chances of crashes and fire accidents are the sameâ??always plausible.

Last weekend, I trekked over to Streets of Willow at Willow Springs International Raceway to run the counterclockwise course for the first time with the track day organization, Shift-S3ctor. I hope to never have to truly put safety gear to the test, but itâ??s surely better to be safe than sorryâ??so I went with the best. To ensure that I had a safe return with moisturized skin intact, Alpinestars outfitted me with everything I needed. This included a womenâ??s-specific Stella GP Pro suit (the same one that Danica Patrick wears . . . if youâ??re reading this, Danica, number-one fan here!) along with Tech 1-T shoes and Tech 1-Z gloves.

Over the past few years, weâ??ve been doing lots of testing of balancing air/fuel ratios, detonation limits, and exhaust temps and found serious horsepower gains to be made with individual cylinder tuning. When tuning an engine, having the proper amount of combustible fuel to the amount of air (air/fuel ratio) to sustain the burn is critical. Running rich can cause a loss in power, while running too lean may result in serious engine damage.

The Subaru EJ engine is notorious for oiling problems. From spun rod/crank bearings to occasional faulty oil pickup units, this engine has been begging for an aftermarket fix to prevent such mishaps from occurring.

Lateral and longitudinal forces from turns, acceleration, and braking, especially in drifting and road race vehicles, could push oil around the floor and up the side of the pan, starving the pickup under high-rpm/high-lateral g conditions. This is a common problem for high-performance engines. The Subaru EJ engine is notorious for oiling problems.
