Beginnings

In the early part of 1979, Ray Guarino found a donor Ram Air Pontiac motor to fit into his 1965 GTO project car. It was quickly treated to a camshaft from Nunzi's Automotive (THE Pontiac Guru in the East Coast ), a set of Hooker three-tube headers, a Holley mechanical-secondary spread-bore carburetor and a re-curved distributor. The 400ci engine pulled strong and worked well with the wide ratio Borg-Warner T-10, sourced from a '62 Impala, with a 3.73:1 12-bolt posi out back.

API SN Donut for Oil Labels
in Blog
posted by: Ray Guarino

API (American Petroleum Institute) SN PLUS is a new motor oil specification developed for turbocharged engines that is being developed in response to automakers request for motor oils that protect against Low-Speed Pre-Ignition (LSPI). LSPI is an engine condition known to occur in Turbocharged Gasoline Direct Injection (TGDI) engines that can be mitigated by changing the motor oil formulation.

Maintaining your vehicle’s performance means protecting turbocharged engines from Low-Speed Pre-Ignition (LSPI). Automakers are the driving force behind API SN PLUS, a new supplemental motor oil specification that protects turbocharged engines.

How do I know if my car needs an API SN PLUS motor oil?

To find out if your vehicle has a turbocharged engine and requires an API SN PLUS motor oil, check your vehicles owner’s manual. While not all engines need additional protection against LSPI, all products meeting API SN Plus should also meet or exceed all API SN standards.

Here is Which Oil Is Right For You document from API.
