    oil

    You are right on the money, Hink. Brad Penn oil is highly recommended by most camshaft manufacturers.

    b/p oil

    I have used the brad penn 20/50 in my alky engines and also vr1 20/50. Seems to me that the b/p oil does not break down as fast as vr1. bearing life has been extended since using b/p oil. I am running the same r/m bearing 3 seasons drag racing on 1/8 mile.

    Just a note, Joe Gibbs has a new oil. A bit pricey but has more zinc. He also has a break-in oil.
