    question about oil level

    I have a question as to what level should the oil be at. I have a 2006 RXP and I was told that you should never go above the half way mark on the dipstick. Was wondering if this is still true when running a turbo instead of the supercharger? Thanks for your response.

    Shoot for 2/3 from bottom bend, or a bit over halfway. Works well for me!

    At 1/2 way between the bends or a little bit above 1/2. Just make sure your following the proper steps to check the oil.
    It's not like checking an automobile's oil.

    I bring to normal operating temp, then idle for 30 seconds, then turn off and wait another 30 seconds and then check
