    They’re popular with powerstroke guys. I’ve used their dry film spray, moly grease and lubricity fuel additive- all good experiences.
    Check around powerstrokearmy.com and you’ll find plenty of information.
    I can give you Jim K’s number to order- his service is top tier and I haven’t known anyone with more knowledge about oils.

    I haven't used it. My current favorite oil is Amsoil AME. I'm close to buying that stuff by the drum and running it in everything I own.

    Interesting. What makes it so good vs. all the other quality oils Amsoil makes? What's the lowest temp it would be safe to be used at?

    It has a crazy high TBN and is formulated for pre-emissions engines. That means it is made with an additive pack that contains a lot of stuff you won't find in modern oils.

    Is it safe for cats? What's the lowest temp it would be safe to be used at?

    I highly doubt it would hurt anything. Should be perfectly fine down to zero F.

    Run the AME in my Ram Cummins that I use exclusively for hauling a gooseneck. I do have an additional 2 micron Amsoil bypass filter installed, which adds 2 qts of capacity. Currently at 32K miles on this oil change, and the TBN is still over 7.

    Unbelievable stuff IMO
