Roller Engine Oil

Before people get mad at me about not searching the forums for this topic. I have. I just didn't see any answers that helped. I have a true roller motor (sbc) that i put a new cam in last year. I used Mobil 1 and cam break oil as well. I'm going to change the oil before i take it out this year but i was curious if i should run royal purple 10-40 or something else? I got this car from my dad before he passed away and even though i know sbc's i have never ran a true roller motor before so that's why i ask. I was thinking that royal purple might hold up better because this is a high RPM motor with a 600 lift cam. Any info will help...David

Re: Roller Engine Oil

royal purple will be fine.. but just some info, my friends dealership tested a bunch of oils ranging from mobil1,pennzoil to royal purple and redline.. and surprisingly valvoline was the best oil they tested

im not sure what tests they did with the oils, but with a high rpm heat test, the valvoline was the only oil that passed the test.

he went from using only royal purple to using valvoline
