    I guess when it comes to motor oils the statement you get what you pay for isn't always true. If I'm reading the data correctly there are some oils that perform well at a less than premium prie.

    Absolutely.....Pennzoil Platinum returns stellar wear metal reports.....and retains it's viscosity under extreme conditions...Amsoil's XL Series is a steal...Shaeffers Series 7000 is a bargain....
    Overpriced and crap UOA's ( or middle of the road at best) are Mobil1 and Royal Purple.....

    Amsoil 0-30 Shear Stability

    Following Sarge's advice I am running PP10-30 as opposed to PP5-30 for better shear resistance and stability. How can Amsoil 0-30 be stable enough to run in LS series engines?

    Amsoil is a totally different formulation. PP utilizes VI's of a different beast thus the recommendation to utilize 10-30 for less VI and better shear stability.....Amsoil utilizes a unique "soup" that in testing and UOA's does not reflect shearing at all...

    Thanks Sarge! I am going to try Amsoil for my next fill. I will post up my UOA for comparison.
