Hi all what weight oil should I use in this 482 stroker ? Drag race only. I broke it in on 10-30. Oil pressure is great with the 10-30. What brand is favored ? Roller cam, wet sump ,system 1 oil filter. Scat 4340 crank scat h beam rods. 2 and 5 or 6 tenths on the mains and 2 and 9 tenths on the rods. Oil pressure is 59 @ idle and 88 revved up. Thanks all....

x2 on the Brad Penn 10/30 oil. I have been using it for years in both my 427 & 428 FE drag engines, as well as my 331 SB Ford, all with flat tappet cams, and will be using it on my new 428 CJ street/strip engine. Several of my buddys are using the same oil in their roller cam engines, all quite happy with Brad Penn.

30wt is what I run in all the cars here. Bearings look good on teardowns.
