    Default 2017 Supra SA Fluids

    Prepping to do an oil change and check all other fluids and top off accordingly (except coolant ).

    I have the raptor 400 and it looks like indmar 5w30 is best. How much does the engine take? Anyone else recommend better oil?

    Iím certain I have a cartridge filter which would be 501022S part from indmar. Right?

    Lastly, what about transmission and such. Thatís where Iím lost. I want to make 100% sure I top off with correct fluids. Thanks!

    Castrol 03084C Edge 5W-30 Advanced Full Synthetic Motor Oil, 5 Quart https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ICSWGJ0...ing=UTF8&psc=1

    Because itís a full synthetic and cheaper than indmar (rebranded) semi synthetic.

    I also prefer the WIX xp filter


    For the V drive, most run Mobil Delvac 1 sae 50 synthetic. Although you donít need a gallon, Indmar v drive is synthetic and not too expensive

    Mobil Delvac Syn Transmission 50, 1 gal https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XD2WVC7...QT1Q9X7665QPNH

    Transmission run any dexron 3 synthetic. Indmar atf is synthetic and not terribly overpriced for the amount you need.

    When using a fluid extractor, do you prefer to extract through dipstick or oil drain hose through transom?

    Mods please move To service if possible. Thanks!

    Drain hose because itís easy, you get all the oil and that is what the hose is for. Plus, itís way faster than dipstick hose and so many get dipstick extractor stuck in the dipstick tube.

    Couple options on where to route extractor/drain hose.

    1) push ballast bag aside and put towel down in the rear starboard storage bay.

    2) if you have the surf locker engine cover off, you can route drain hose out the surf locker and put the extractor on the ground.

    Make sure the engine oil is warmed up.

    You can use a 1/4 inch air hose fitting to connect your extractor to the factory drain hose.
