Test Reports It has been shown that there is a reduction in heat from 15 to 20 degrees with an increase of up to 6 hp on the top end of the torque band, and 1 1/ 2 hp gain on the bottom. These tests have been conducted by teams with engines up to 1150 hp. To date, many teams have reported their results. Currently tests are being conducted by major teams in Europe, the United States, Canada and Australia with results showing an increase of up to 500 RPMs. A European Formula 3000 team used NEO's High Performance Synthetic 0w-5 and gained 3 hp, which gave them 10 pole positions, 5 lap records, and 4 track records. Here in the United States, a manufacturer of aluminum engines for circle track and drag racing on the east coast, dynoed an engine with the idea of wasting it to evaluate the 0w-5 motor oil. "The engine was the most responsive engine I have ever dynoed! " From off idle to wide open throttle he was very impressed. After disassembling the engine he was very surprised to find virtually no wear on any of the moving parts. And the oil looked like it did when he poured it in. He felt he could have dynoed that engine for a week with no problems.
