    Great break in oil
    By  ANTONIO,  a  Verified Buyer  on  May 02, 2022
    Has added zinc which is great. Good for fully breaking in small engines also. I like that it's red in color so you can check it to make it's not getting too dark.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Race car break-in oil
    By  BEN,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Harrison twp Michigan   on  April 13, 2022
    I have reviewed the specifications of several oils for my new Pontiac 455 GTO drag engine (1967 GTO) I have decided on Amsoil for break-in. The engine is a non-roller 12.5 compression unit with a high lift cam so proper break-in is critical.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Good protection for new motors
    By  BENJAMIN,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Yuma, AZ  on  March 13, 2022
    I have used this in many engine. I used it to break in a 26hp kholer engine and ever since the oil stays very clean after many hard hours of work signifying that the rings are well sealed. Also I build race engines and use this to break them in. We had one motor that had to be torn down 4 times and I reused the rod and crank bearings all 4 times because they were perfect. So I got to see the bearings after about 6 different nights of racing in them and the oil pressure is excellent still. We get great ring sealing with this oil and I will always sell my motors with this oil.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
