Has anyone who has used the XP1 racing experienced a noticable amount of slugde in the oil when it is removed? The engine it is used in is a 327 NHRA stock eliminator engine. The oil is changed about every 10 runs.

We have seen this in our oval track engine. Not sure if running alcohol has anything to do with it.

maybe the race oils use NO dispersants
Suggesting that one should not expect extended drains, lots of idling, or even tolerance for slight coolant leaks, or dare I say ethanol.

I've never heard of any oil forming sludge in ten runs on a drag car. As suggested, talk to Lake Speed Jr. If you need his e-mail addy PM me.
