nobody asked, but I'm running Ravenol RRS 5W50 without issues.

Strangely, they also produce a 10W50 RSE which appears to match all of the specs of their 5W50 apart from a higher HTHS closest to OEM 10W60, but both though the cold and hot viscosity is lower than 10W60s and even redline 5w50. I will probably try this one next oil change.

There are not 400 S85 strokers in the USA. Those numbers provided by his followers are pure bogus

Meanwhile, I've done three thousand rod bearings jobs. I started a couple years ago and BE has only made one thousand rod bearings since they started, but I've done 3000. Maybe it was 4000, it's so hard to keep count

Anyone who has actually had a stroker built knows this is pure bullscrap. Pistons from Mahle Motorsport? That will be 12 weeks please. A balanced stroker crank? Give it another 12. Honing and boring the block? Can only be done after you have the pistons. Etc etc etc
