Penn grade 1 racing oil?

I'm sitting in the shop waiting for my oil to be changed, and I saw an add for Penn grade 1 oil. http://www.bradpennracing.com
has anybody heard of this or tried it before? It sounds a lot like the stuff Beaner sales (schaffers).

I have a call into the rep about pricing, and I'm just curious about it.

They make a 15w40 and 20w50.

Re: Penn grade 1 racing oil?

I just spoke w the area rep. He says that the API rated CI4 would work in the 7.3/6.0 with no problems. It looks like buying it in 5g pales would cost about $13/gal. Not too bad.

The part number he gave me was 7177 for 15w40.
The CJ4 version part number is 7196.

If anybody has tried this stuff, let me know. I'm interested in tring it. I'd like to know how it compares to schaffers.

Re: Penn grade 1 racing oil?

Another question I just thought of.

What would be the difference between running 15w40 and 20w50 be? Is 20w50 just too heavy?

Re: Penn grade 1 racing oil?

Brad Penn oil is IMO one of the best race oils you can buy, we have used it forever as Kendall GT1 20w-50 before that name was bought by Conoco-Phillips, now the original Pennsylvania "Green" oil is called Brad Penn, while Kendall is just generic Texas or middle east crude.

Re: Penn grade 1 racing oil?

I drive by the refinery where it is made every day. We use the 15w40 diesel oil in everything diesel and it's the oil we use in the shop for changes. Excellant oil. A lot of guys use the diesel oil for break in oil on the gas engines. I always used the same oil in my pulling trucks.

If anyone can't find a source for the oil, just shoot me a pm. I can get you whatever you need.

And yes it works fine in the 6.4's.

The rep told me that the PN7177 (CI4) has more sulfure than the later model trucks w the DPF like.

He said that PN7196 (CJ4) is made for the DPF trucks.

It sounds like a great oil to me. I'm going to order up 15-20gal and give it a try.

Re: Penn grade 1 racing oil?

Here's the link for the DPF safe 7196.

http://www.amref.com/bp_pb/7196_BP_H...LUS_DEO_PB.pdf

This is the link for the 7.3/6.0 7177.

http://www.amref.com/bp_pb/7177_BP_HD_Select_DEO_PB.pdf

This is the spec sheet for LE 15w40.

http://www.le-inc.com/products/documents/8800_tdb.pdf

How does it compare to PENN? Anybody have specs on Scaffer's, Rotella and Delo?

Now someone needs to put on their engineering hat and tell us what all the crap in the spec sheet means.

Where's Charles?
