    Comments about Valvoline 20W-50 Racing Fully Synthetic Motor Oil (1 Quart):

    This oil is used in my track day/ street car. I do not want to rebuild this motor soon so this is cheap insurance. This ZDDP synthetic oil makes the engine sounds quieter than the other non-zinc synthetic I used.

    • Q:

      The zinc is great for my roller cam....just that I understand continued use of a phosphorous oil additive will eventually contaminate catalytic converters. Burning very small amounts of phosphorous via blow-by, is not an issue on track day......10 or 12k miles of continued use will leave a catalytic converter ineffective.

        A:

        Happy to assist! This oil is formulated for a track vehicle or high performance applications. Even the colour is different (sapphire blue) from traditional oil. If the car is used as a daily driver (with this oil) then there may be some kind of after effect on the catalytic converters from what we researched. If you use your car on a daily basis for regular commute we suggest Valvoline SynPower 20W-50 Full Synthetic Motor Oil Part No VV945.

    • Q:

      Does this oil contain detergents for normal street use?

        A:

        I'm happy to assist you, TR6Driver! Yes, this Valvoline 20W-50 Racing Fully Synthetic Motor Oil - Part No. 679082 is a detergent product. Typically one of the ways to tell if an oil is detergent or non-detergent are the letters associated with the API service rating. An API rating of SA or SB will be non-detergent, while more modern motor oil products will have API ratings that are later in the alphabet such as SL/SM/SN.
