Patrick Veltri, Male, Engineer, Ashburn, Virginia Every year in January and March, I travel to Florida to work as an SCCA pit marshal for the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona and the Mobil 1 12 Hours at Sebring endurance races. As a pit marshal, my responsibilities include keeping a written log of everything that the pit crew does to the car whenever they pit. Consequently, I am familiar with the equipment and products that the racing team use. My experience has shown me that the oil of choice in the world of endurance racing is Mobil 1 . If these endurance teams can use Mobil 1 in their racecars at the track at over 100 mph for up to 24 hours straight, well then, I think it’s good enough for me."
quote:Patman, I should have been more clear. What I meant was that LS1s and other GM engines show higher level of certain wear metals like Copper and Iron (sometimes) as compared to Toyota/Subaru/VW engines. I'm a HUGE fan of the LS1. One of the best engines of all time IMO. They are very tough and hold up well. Point is, I don't really judge all oils based on how they do in a LS1 engine, being they have a tendancy to show higher levels of wear with many oils. For instance, Redline's really only good showing is in VW engines it seems. Hond and RL usually show higher Pb values. Amsoil seems to do well in LS1's and All oils do well in Subarus. Just depends on the engine in many cases. [ April 27, 2004, 09:13 PM: Message edited by: buster ]
What makes you think the LS1 is a poorly wearing engine Buster?

My concern with this vehicle is that half of the powertrain wty remains. What's your take on the API issue? Mobil's PDS is silent -- what's the bottle say?
