quote:According to this link that I found on BITOG, Redline has 1/2 the Cf of Mobil 1. What makes an oil have better Cf then another and is this the mechanism that causes some to see lower engine temps when using a different brand of oil such as RL or Amsoil S2k? I would guess that these oils contian more FM's then the other oils so less friction is produced and therefore less heat? Is this a correct assumption? Thanks [ October 26, 2003, 08:17 PM: Message edited by: buster ]
Red Line also will reduce lubricant temperatures significantly. Track testing done by the Delco Chassis Division of General Motors showed a reduction in both engine and transaxle temperatures of at least 30 degrees F when comparing Red Linemotor oil and to a major synthetic brand. These tests were performed in a Oldsmobile Calais and a Chevrolet Berreta GTZ equipped with the High-Output QUAD 4.
