Designed for engine builders, Royal Purple break-in oil is formulated to allow optimal ring seal and protect rotating assembly components such as the camshaft and valvetrain from initial start-up wear. Engine builders using flat-tappet cams have grown increasingly concerned that many modern motor oils do not provide adequate wear protection for new engines, particularly those using flat-tappet cams. Royal Purple has addressed this issue with their new break-in oil. Royal Purple combines highly refined mineral oil, preferred for engine break-in, with advanced additives containing high levels of zinc and phosphorus to optimize protection in flat-tappet and roller engines. Royal Purple break-in oil is fully formulated and does not require the use of any other chemical additives. Royal Purple recommends using one of their high performance motor oils after the engine is broken in for maximum engine performance.

Q:

Can I use this oil in my reconstituted sbc 180 miles ago? The first ignition was made with 15w40 mineral oil, how often should I change it

Asked by EFRAIN on October 27, 2018

A:

The instructions indicate that this oil is intended to 1) prptect the bearings on initial start 2) Aid in the ring seal per manufactures instructions. It should be used only for the first 500 miles.

In your case, you can definitely use it for 500 miles. I'm sure ring seal will be helped and it's not overly expensive.

Nothing but Royal Purple

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

I've always bought some of the most reliable, dependable cars on the road and I keep them at their peak with Royal Purple motor oil. When rebuilding my 22RE Toyota motor, I spared no expense on the highest quality internal engine parts, I got their break in oil as I plan on using Royal Purple for the life of the car, and wanted to start it off right. You have to make sure that you're engine's tight when using their products because it's more prone to leaks, but it out performs conventional motor oil hands down. ...read more

I believe best oil out there for not only break in purposes but continued use. Using break in oil for 1500 miles then switching to full synthetic RP per their guidelines. Costs a little more, but the benefits far exceed the cost.

Almost every local engine builder requires you to buy it because it isn't available locally in any auto parts store.

Engine Break-in Oil

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

RPO-11487
I used this on my GM Performance Parts crate engine, & am about to use it in my wife's new LS engine. This is a non synthetic SAE 10W30 oil. Works great for breaking in cams & for the initial engine break-in period. For best results I switched over to royal purple full synthetic after the break-in just as its stated on the bottle. I highly recommend this for new engine break-in procedures. ...read more
