    Royal Purple is at Pep Boys for about $ 7.00 very good price and a very good product. IMO

    You changed the oil on the dyno, how many times have you had it out ? or how many hours ? Or is it dirty ?

    Broke the motor in and then I swapped it out on the dyno to Mobil 1 10w 30 syn. Ran the boat pretty hard at the lake testing, then took it to the river for the weekend. I cut open the filter the other day and it was kind of dirty, not bad by any means but I'm going back out for 7days and would rather have fresh oil/filter because I plan on footing it and testing hardware during the week when nobody is on the water.

    Ever ran the Lucas stuff ?? I know your a big fan of Mobil 1, what weight to you run, and how often do you swap it ? You making it to the CP deal next weekend ? We might have to have a Ford pair off !

    I have only run the Lucas Oil stabilizer.

    Someone here will know the answer(it's skipping my memory right now) I ended up using the Royal Purple 15-40 this last time out after the dyno because all the Mobil One had the new (SM) (?) rating or whatever it is that is stripped of all the zinc and other properties that the engine's like. May be with a roller cam it's not that big of a deal but I decided to play it safe. If someone else doesn't post it I'll find the rating info.

    I usally run 20-50, but this time ran the 15-40 noticed a little oil pressure drop once it gets hot 185+. It will stay in this yr and next year I'll go back to 20-50, it ran about 7-10 psi more, but I have different bearing clearances now, so I don't know what the 20-50 will do.

    Unless I had a major screwup the Mobil-1 would stay in all season. We run an oil cooler but we always make sure to get the oil to temp 205-220 a few times on the weekend. It burns out the water (condensation) in the oil. Make sure you get your oil over 205-215 to burn the water out of it every now and then.

    Yes, we plan on being at the Regatta in two weeks. I have a little bit of testing to do this week. See ya there.

    I want you to worry about "Sawing off" a few Chevy's before you come looking for another Ford. But the family stationwagon is always game

    Well I lied!!! It was 8 bucks a quart back in March, I bought 2 cases and it was 7.95. It's now 8.95 at http://www.racerpartswholesale.com/p..._Oil/Race_Oils
    If you order by the case it's cheaper!!!

    Wow Wayne that's a great price on the Red Line.. just buy it by the gallon and save even more.

    On the Mobil One or other oil I was told to stay away from the "SM" rated oil to use a "SJ" or "SL" oil.

    I really don't know if it matters much on a roller cam engine Does anyone know ?

    You know sleeper I'm not to sure. I've heard the same thing about flat tappets due to the fact that off the shelf oils don't add phosphorous or zinc anymore like you said and racing oils still have some!! I figured if Pro Stock and just about every other Pro class runs it then it must work!! I've talked to a couple TAH guys and they said they can get more bearing life than what they used to get with the other oils!! They both sell break in oil additive so I guess it doesn't hurt to be a little on the safe side!!
