I wouldn't run anything but super unleaded. I know out in the Rockies their octane isnt as high...I think 91 is their super unleaded, not 93 like here. My car does have a factory tranny cooler, but its small. Should I get a bigger one, if so how big? As for the temp gauge, where would I put the sensor?

As for weight in the trailer I have 2 oak dressers, a tall narrow curio cabinent, a full size bed (maybe 300 lbs total) an empty craftsman toolbox. I have my tools that weigh approx 150 lbs. and maybe a dozen tote boxes with my clothes and 100 or so unbuilt car models, plus alot of little misc stuff.

Well most of it...some will be inside the car and trunk. I'm going to put the stuff where it'll fit.

How is your rear CCR and ELC? Make sure that'* in good shape before you make your trip

Make sure the ELC is up to Snuff..( Electrinic Level Control ) Known as Load level... The ELC keeps the rear end pumped up via the air struts in the rear..

If you are going to tow that weight, I'd say the car can do it... But you may want that larger tranny cooler..

If you have an SSEi, you have ELC. You can't delete it with the default FE2 suspension.
