Do you still think I need to replace it?

Yes. It is very cheap insurance.

Consider your engine oil is at 200 degrees and 100 PSI and really flowing. I do not know of any cleaner that is even close.
"There is nothing nice about a Cobra. It is stripped down to the essentials- a big engine, a small car, and four wide tires to keep the whole business on pavement. Its loud, smells like gasoline, and shakes, shudders, and bucks. It makes your arms tired and your feet hot. You nearly crash about once every 10 minutes. Its so damn wonderful that you cant believe it" Automobile Magazine 2004
