Heavy Duty Engine Oil (HDEO) - Diesel/Gas Pickups/Trucks/Vans

CI-4 is not low ash where as CJ-4 is. It all depends on if there is emission control stuff down stream of the engine. Diesel Particulate filters require low ash (CJ-4) formulation.

Ah ok, I had a look at website you posted but couldn't see any mention of them. To be honest it would be hard to find a better race oil than the PAO/Ester blends of Motul and Fuchs/Silkolene.
