Friction-modifier-free formula helps rings seat properly for maximum compression and reduced blow-by. Excellent film strength and proprietary anti-wear additive package help ensure cams and bearings are protected during break-in. Delivers competition-quality engine preparation.

See the product data sheet for full details.

QUICKLY SEATS RINGS

  • Friction-modifier-free formula allows sharp peaks on newly honed cylinder walls to partially flatten, creating more surface area for rings to seat.
  • Forms a dynamic seal that increases compression, horsepower and torque.

PROTECTS CRITICAL PARTS FROM WEAR

  • Contains high levels of zinc and phosphorus (ZDDP) additives.
  • Delivers excellent protection for splash-lubricated parts, like camshafts and lifters, during break-in.
  • Increased film strength protects rod and main bearings from wear.

    The Oil
    By  GLENN,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Massachusetts   on  January 19, 2024
    I have 1970 mopar 340 that been rebuilt. Sitting covered & pickled for 20 years. Used a different oil & assembly lube. I took it apart to recheck everything- found residue on pistons & some rings were sticking. Cleaned everything & used AMSOIL & assembly lube. Big difference from the other oil.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    AMSOIL Break-In Oil Review
    By  HALEY,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Baltimore, MD  on  January 02, 2024
    The product shipped pretty quickly, so that was nice to be able to get the oil very fast. The product seemed to do its job in the Toyota 86 we own, that just last year got a new engine installed. The product is a tad more expensive than the regular oil, but you are getting a thinner higher quality oil.. so in my opinion it is worth the buy for a new engine. We have nothing bad to say about this product thank you AMSOIL
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Great product… slick but sticky and stays on parts. Used this product when I was building my 1987 Jeep Wrangler 258 I6 engine and it needs high zinc oil. Going to follow up with their Amsoil Z-Rodd for the life of the engine. Built with Amsoil, Runs on Amsoil. 🤙
