    1966 426 hemi Charger Oil Recommendation

    Mobile 1 15W-50. It has 1200 ppm of zddp, so you wont wipe that flat tappet cam lobe. If you choose to use an oil with lower zddp content make sure to add some zddp plus.

    In a performance application on a Chevy 383 what oil would be better?Mobil 1 Extended Performance 15W-50 or Pennzoil Platinum 15W-50. The car does not see a lot of miles but is driven hard and sees some good revs.

    1966 426 hemi Charger Oil Recommendation

    Back when I used a flat tappet cam I used Rotella 15W40 oil. Chevron Delo seems to be another popular option with the flat tappet crowd. The price is good too at $15 a gallon. Add a WIX filter and Filtermag on the side and you will have all the protection you need for that flat tappet cam.

    OCI based on months in car?

    I have read in different places that you change you oil based on a certain amount of miles or months. Whatever comes first. The milage part I understand, but not the months.
