Yeah,it must be the VR1 racing oil. I have some of the VR1 20W50 in my small stash. I may go buy a few of them (if the AZ near me has it) just to have it :^)

I ran it for a year when I had a bad rod bearing in the GN and I was in college and too poor to replace it. It was bad enough that I was afraid to stand next to the car while it was running. The Valvoline 60wt got me through part of a summer and a winter. Oil pressure was so high in the middle of winter I had to disable the starter saftey switch so I could start it in drive to keep the rpms from going past 1,000rpm. Otherwise it would blow the filter off and relieve itself of 5 quarts in 15 seconds. I didn't dare touch the gas for the first 10 minutes of run time. I know this isn't what you were asking but it helped to nurse the car through a difficult time. It took about 15 minutes to pour it in after an oil change in the winter lol.
