Btw, RL is super high in moly, but RL themselves do not recommend you use it to break-in your engine.... If you insist on having moly in your break-in oil, i would use castrol gtx, its relatively clean and has some small amount of moly in it....

For my first oil change, I would like to use an oil that is known to be high in Moly....since apparently, this is what makes a break-in oil a "break in oil". I might change my oil a wee bit earlier than recommended for this first change..which is why I would like to maintain a fairly high moly %. What are the oils that are known to have this higher % of moly?
quote:The oil Honda puts in the car at the factory is high in moly and they suggest keeping it in the crankcase until the first scheduled oil change.

quote:A high moly oil you can use in your Honda is as close as your Honda dealer. Search the "Virgin Oil Analysis" forum and I think you'll find at least one Honda factory fill VOA.
