Old school. My randfather used to do it, rest his sole, in his racecars.. but those were flathead fords and they didn't know any better. I don't see how a detergent dispersant package is gfgoing to impeded break in. Leave the SA rated oils for squeeky door hinges and put a quality oil in from the start.

Has anyone looked at the spec sheet? What are your opinions on the specs and is it nessessary to have a detergent package for break in? The oil might be in the engine for 30 minutes.
