SR-1’s performance is not compromised by standardized additive technology or by our competitors’ price points, it is simply a purpose built, specialty formula designed to exceed the demands of high performance Japanese, European and US sports cars. A combination of Generation-2 MPZ and low friction base oils reduce frictional losses to increase horsepower and torque by as much as 3%. A premium polymer and additive system controls viscosity for long term durability, maximum engine protection and eliminate engine deposits. Torco SR-1 is the ultimate in high performance synthetic motor oil technology. No other synthetic motor oil meets the performance and protection benefits of SR-1.

I have been using Torco "racing" for many years. They just released their SR-1 "street" oil, as well as redoing their website. Torco wrote me and said SR-1 is a GrouplV and V based oil (Torco does not call grouplll synthetic). It is less than $5 per quart DELIVERED! Torco currently is being used (0W-20 in sons Ford Focus DOHC, and 5W-30 in 2 4.6L V8 Fords). Smooth, quiet, good performance, mpg. Going to give the SR-1 a try next changes. The quality IMO is there. The price is right for a REAL synthetic. BTW my 4.0 Aerostar will continue getting GC. It LOVES the stuff! LOL

Given Torco's racing heritage and large doses of moly I tend to believe their statement . "SR-1’s performance is not compromised by standardized additive technology or by our competitors’ price points, it is simply a purpose built, specialty formula designed to exceed the demands of high performance ". At least in print with that 5/20 having dang near a 10wt viscosity I'm thinking it's loaded up with barrier additives .Their talk of second generation MPZ makes me think modern oil soluable moly.Also, the 10/30 looks like a straight weight just about . It should be very vi stable but again alls on paper right now but at that price " 4.75 a litre and 3 bucks shipping for any size order " I think I'll place an order for a case of the 5/30 and see what it's about. I mean I doubt it will be subpare to Mobil and it's only money [Wink] [ November 27, 2003, 04:17 PM: Message edited by: Motorbike ]

Twist your head a little and read these three words: Moly Phos Zinc This acronym was mentioned in another Torco thread by another member. Generation2---bent over for API
