The Critical Truth about Proper Lubrication in High Performance Engines

Edelbrock Performance Lubricants – We make Choosing the Right Lubrication EZ 

 So you walk into your local parts store and see a wall of engine oils. You see the traditional brands that have been around for years. You see the synthetics. You see the additives. But your standing there scratching your head thinking, “what is the best oil for my engine?”. With Edelbrock Performance lubricants, we take the guesswork out of choosing the right oil for maximum performance and long engine life.

Quick lesson – Zinc dialkyl-dithios-phosphate (also known as ZDDP) is a chemical combination of phosphorus and zinc. Phosphorus seeks out high friction areas inside your motor, and carries the extra lubrication provided by the zinc to these high friction components. ZDDP was essential for proper wear-in of high-friction components, like flat tappet hydraulic camshafts. Well since most, if not all engines produced by new vehicle manufacturers are equipped with roller camshafts, your standard spec oils have been stripped of ZDDP – putting your performance engine at risk. Edelbrock Performance Lubricants puts the ZDDP back into the oil for proper lubrication of high performance engine components. With five products to meet the needs of todays’ hot rodder, Edelbrock makes it easy to select the right oil for your engine. 

Cam failure as a result of improper break-in lubrication. Don’t replace your cam twice.
