    Redline Professional Series 5w20

    This might be 0w20, don't know for sure but it was labeled 5w20. I am posting for Corey, maybe he will shed light if that was a typo. In my experience Blackstone is very good. <img src="https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/attachments/usergals/2019/11/full-76018-38152-r_pro.jpg"...

    Good lubrication and still Hemi's are failing.

    This guys EXPERT opinion is it is the needle bearings on the lifters. So literally every shop knows about the hemi failure rates. of course keyboard warriors just kick back and say hemi's are great hemi's are great, but the fact is they fail at a huge rate. Guys with hemi's need to look at...

    Redline goes api sn+

    <a href="https://www.redlineoil.com/professional-series-5w20-motor-oil" target="_blank">redline lspi friendly oil</a> Well there goes the neighborhood, but I do not know moly levels. If they are high, that would be a pretty good choice for an lspi quenching oil with the mix pao/III basestock.

    2011+ Ram and other RFE owners delete ATF heater

    Watch the video, look under your chrysler rfe and see if you have the thermal bypass block, if so get it off there. You can delete w/o the $100 valve, but that makes it easy. Now that these vehicles are getting old, this is killing atf4 by bypassing your cooler. These blocks are now failing...

    Why use Redline and Redline Clone oils...

    It's nice some oil companies educate you to their base oils instead of hiding what they are made of? This explains why engines run quieter and hemi tick is being ended. <a href="https://youtu.be/gBzcLI9GcPY?t=13" target="_blank">video of redline base stocks</a>

    Right is 10 years on toyota super long life coolant plus RMI-25, as you see the rmi25 turns it orange (yellow plus red or pink = orange).

    Low Noack plus Low HTHS??

    How can an oil brand have low noack and low hths w/o that being a feature of the base oil? Since both are high heat tests would you either expect good numbers in both, or bad numbers in both, not split? Unless you achieve a low NOACK with some type of additive other then base oil? Good...
