Is there any reason for this in a non-flat tappet application? Do you really benefit that much from extra ZDDP if in a roller motor?

Also, thought someone once said that the regular VR1 was not to be used more than 3k OCI due to less detergents?

Just wondering the justification for ANYONE on here who may be using this VR1 oil (either dino or syn) in a street car/non-race application vs just using HDEO or HM oil instead if wanting the extra ZDDP????????????????????????????????????

im not real sure how to answer all of your question but i can tell you vr1 has a fair amount of calcium like 1800-2000 something like that. from what i can tell from looking at the voas its like SL VWB. im sure there are some things that dont show up on VOA to make it awesome...i just dont know what. i can tell you my brother runs it in his racemotor because its the only cheap 20/50 that wont breakdown with his grouted 650hp sbc. normal oil temp is like 270 in his engine so it has do be stout

My friend runs the VR-1 20w50 in his 900whp Supra and the engine has absolutely no issues, I want to give their 10w30 a try..
