If you mean their 20W-50 speciality racing track oil: 100C....17.3 40C....124.4 VI.....153 TBN.....<6 ZN.....1200 P......1200 Very low detergent/dispersant package. So low it is not even adveretised. Meant to be changed often in race applications. If you mean 20W-50 VRI: 100C........20.5 40C........181.8 VI.........132 TBN........ 8 NOACK......<15 SA......... 1 ZN........1400 P.........1300 CA........1910 NA........ 490 Basically a heavy duty, low ash, street oil with a good detergent/dispersant package. It looks like they took their premium conventional oil, increased the calcium, sodium, zinc and phosphorus.

That's more info than a VOA would get you as well... (as far as Z & P go anyway) Don't believe the hype on the VR1, stuff is simply an SL oil- period.

VR-1 has more ZDDP then SL/GF-3 allowed.

VR-1 20W-50 is SM rated as is Mobil 1 15W-50 with 1200 ZDDP.
Right, and like I've said here 10938023480932 and 34 times, API SM does not limit phosphorous! GF-4 does.

According to the data sheet, it has no moly, but 490 ppm sodium. http://www.valvoline.com/pdf/VR-1_Racing_Motor_Oil.pdf
