A team of mechanics won the 2012 AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge by building a 853hp Chevy small block 402ci engine. Lubricated with AMSOIL 5w20 oil and involving a number of engine improvements the talented team of mechanics produced the incredible horsepower engine that won AMSOIL’s engine building competition. More can be read about the 2012 AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge in the March 2013 issue of POPULAR HOT RODDING.
AMSOIL was the first major company to market synthetic engine oils, and the brand has become the world standard for many racers and hot rod builders because it provides more horsepower as well as far greater engine protection than conventional oils which are heavily comprised of rotted animal and plant remains found in natural oils.
AMSOIL is also quickly becoming popular among the Harley motorcycle set because of the added horsepower as well as engine protection. While many race cars will seek sponsorship from many brands of mainstream oils, it’s actually an open secret that many will actually use AMSOIL instead because it simply adds more horsepower than these other conventional brands.
AMSOIL’s yearly engine building competition is a good showcase for the ultrahigh horsepower engines that can be built using skilled mechanics, high quality engine parts and AMSOIL as a lubricant.
