    Another Amsoil win

    Funny they even show F150 Ecoboost.

    "Difficult or not, fighting LSPI must be done. Next-generation oils will need to pass an LSPI test to meet the new API SP and ILSAC GF-6 performance specifications set to take effect in mid-2019. General Motors is ahead of the game and requires oils to pass their own LSPI test to meet its updated GM dexos1 specification (known as dexos1:2015) scheduled to take effect Aug. 31, 2017."

    "We’re hard at work reformulating Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil, XL Synthetic Motor Oil and OE Synthetic Motor Oil in preparation for the new engine challenges addressed by the new specifications.

    After months of vigorous testing, the results are in: AMSOIL synthetic motor oil provided 100 percent protection against LSPI in the engine test required for the GM dexos1 Gen 2 specification, proving it can protect turbocharged direct-injected engines.

    The complete line of AMSOIL synthetic motor oils will be upgraded to meet these challenges. Stay tuned."

    I wonder if LSPI is what causes these motors to blow. It seems like it's a stock motor running at low speeds in a lot of cases

    It is not
    Lets do some math, GT's flow 30lbs/min x2 turbos = 60lbs/min x 10hp per pound = 600 engine hp x .85 for drive train loss = 510rwhp in a perfect world = what Full Race made on the freak-o-boost pushed to the limits of the GT's and stock HPFP

    edit:

    OP states they are working hard to REFORMULATE the oils

    So not current oil, but future oil...

    Cool thing about the GEN 2 ecoboost is it uses Port injection only for these areas of "Low Speed High Torque" to combat LSPI.

    Added Port injection isn't just about oil coking valves.

    Little confusing though, because there they say it already provides 100% protection against lspi.
