a few of my buddies use diesel oil to break in engines and change it out to regular synthetic oil after. use a heavy oil to get the oil pressure high off the bat.... this oil is only going to last an hour or 2 (4-5 heat cycles)

im too lazy to go back in the thread... but this is only used on new cams, bottom ends etc....

Make sure you check to see if you get 4 or 5 quarts though cause your engine will blow up

i bought a gallon of Rotella synth, and then I bought four quarts of Mobil 1 synth. When I got home I dumped the Mobil 1, and refilled the bottles with Rotella synth. I will not be owned by overfilling shenanigans.

Dipsticks aren't for checking oil they are for crankcase ventilation
