I used Brad Penn 10w30 on my old 488 with some pretty heavy nitrous use. All the bearings looked good when we pullet it apart. Granted I was only running a few seconds at a time, but 3 years of abuse and they still look new

I will have to call the tec line and ask how well Micron Moly is with E85.

Methanol is not ethanol.

I did years ago, until I started using Schaeffer. Oil analysis started coming back in the single digit on wear partials in part per million.

Temps dropped, extended drain intervals, and fuel mileage went up too.

Royal Purple will show the same results as will Amsoi, but their price is over double with no added benefit.

How long do you run the Schaeffer oil before changing? I'll have to see if I can find some locally.

I went to Schaeffer web page and there's a tab for "look for Dealer" put your zip in and bingo!
There's one about 15 miles from me. Going to call and make sure they have the weight i'm looking for.

They offer a oil analysis service as long as your buying their oil. Take a sample of each oil change and they will recommend the drain intervals.

It has a lot to do with the environment your running it in and how good of shape your engine is.

They provide a sample bottle that's self labeled, just follow the instructions fill out the info card, and put it in the mail.

I was just looking at that and will see if I can get a case to try. Was at PRI last year and Brad Penn said they were good running their synthetic 20/50 race oil with Methanol, so I ran it all last year and even changed it pretty frequently. Last night I ran it before putting away for the winter, I noticed after 6 passes, Oil temp was about 210 and pressure was about 30psi at idle, so I am planning to pull the engine and inspect the bearings before running this year.

1.73 rockers with a stud girdle. Blue Thunder "B" ported heads with 2 1/4 primary into 4in collectors.

I'm thinking a syn oil that will work with E85 with be what I go with. Thanks for all the info.                          

How big? Cubic inches on "this build"?
