I looked for around and have not found a good answer. The car has a VF2 supercharger on it. Found the other day while checking oil that the dip stick was hard to remove. I have read that the I ring sticks but it was hard to remove all the way through the tube. Also while putting It back in I had to help it along inch by inch. The dip stick tube seems to be loose rocks side to side. I think the side by side movement is because it might be missing a bracket from the VF2 install, not sure though. Anyone know If I have a problem and how to fix
Thanks everyone

I used to have the VF stage 2 setup and yes you lose the OEM bracket. Mine always wobbled a little bit but never a problem. Be very careful not to pull the dipstick tube out of the block. It has a retained O ring but is a pain to put back. It can be done but only from underneath the car.
I can't remember it being too hard to remove the dipstick. I hope the dipstick tube has not been bent more and crushed. You do need to work out the correct orientation to move the dipstick so that it is "flat" sided to get around the corners.
