I live in the west so I never used it. But now, with all of these oil company mergers, Kendall is just a part of a merged group of oil companies, and who knows what sort of formulation it has now.

Originally posted by Kompressor: I use Kendall 40 wt. monograde in my jetboat, seems to hold up very well, in this application ultra high oil temps are very demanding on oil, my success here probably has more to do with the viscosoity than the brand. The 40 wt. is still green in color. I've also used the 10w30 in my daily drivers, seems to be a fine oil, but I don't have any proof that it works better or worse than other dino's either. Sounds like you spent a few bucks building that engine, any reason you don't want to spend a few bucks on a "top of the line" synth oil?
