      Rotella has way more ZDDP and is better for the lifters in motors that are not roller rocker. ZDDP is also good for the rings and bores. The cars with the high pressure cam driven fuel pump require a...

      The car is much snappier all over. Earlier spool you can hear at all throttle points now, not as lazy and crisper exhaust tone.
