    I clocked the 205 flat and was just wondering if I need to add a second fill plug a little higher or if the factory fill was enough. I do drive it on the street sometimes and don't want to burn it up. Any advise would help.

    How much clocking did you do? I think if you did the standard amount (ie basically makes the bottom of the tcase level, instead of angling down on the pass side) you should be fine.

    It's pretty much flat, I drove it around today and with the large hole in my floor, I was able to keep tabs on how hot it got and after about 5 miles it was warm but I think it will be alright.

    You could always drop a thermocouple in it to keep an eye on it until you're satisfied.

    We sell alot of these to guys who are clocking there NP205s. Good insurance to know you have the correct amount. No one wants to have to rebuild a case. If you can get 4 quarts in at the rotation its in now you should be ok.
