Garwood, NJ - Is there any horsepower to be made in motor oil? This is a very good topic that has been debated by many for quite some time. Nyce1s.com and BYTuning decided to tackle this topic in the first episode of a series of oil tests that will be conducted.

Im posting to give my cars specific motor set-up....before any questions come up...

Stock TSX K24 block/rod/piston, with modded Type S oil pump.
Stock Type S cylinder head with R-Crew cams,springs,retainers.
Custom sheetmetal intake manifold with Accufab 80mm TB.
DTR 4-2-1 race header with 3' full exhaust with magnaflow muffler.
RC 750cc injectors....
AEM ECU..
K-Tuned external waterpump/block-off plate.

For the oil test and AEM/KPRO battle, our car was on 93 octane pump gas from Delta gas station....

This motor has been used non-stop since the 2005 race season and is alittle tired but still going strong...


The AEM was already tuned and was untouched for this oil test, all the gains were from the oils we tested alone, no ecu tuning was done...


To satisfy some peoples requests to test higher $$ oils, we will be teaming up with Nyce1s , 1320 dyno and YOSOLO again in the near future to test Eneos,Royal Purple, also so stay tuned for our AEM vs. K-Pro challenge, which was shot the same nite after the oil shootout...So look out..

Thank you , any questions feel free to ask, they will be answered..

That's sick and I'm sure will answer a lot of questions regarding diff. motor oils that r out.
Are u guys planning on testing different weights of oil as well?

It's nice to see that car again. That beast was running 11's 3 years ago. :D :up:

Very interesting test. Although this cannot be an end all to the debate, it sure helps draw conclusions a little better. Good job guys!!

I was surprized myself but not shocked at the results...

Of course YOSOLO is tuning the K-PRO... lol
He is the only one that tunes our car, plus he might get mad if we get someone else, being that he works @ our shop...:hammer:

We wouldn't know who else to go to anyway.... He's proven to get the max out the the K's in our eyes, the power we made for the oil test was on 93 pump, and wait til you see the results from the AEM/Kpro battle...:up:

Pretty interesting, would be nice to see a test with the "higher end" race oils.
BTW, 1320 performance, did they use to be a vendor on here?
