Mike ran Alamo Motorsports for a number of years and has been directly involved in local stock car racing even longer. This might be a good chance to become an Amsoil dealer or play some other role (like a Preferred Customer) with Amsoil.

The business name was Alamo Autosports. Thanks for mention Nick.

That's right. Alamo Autosports!

 

The old memory's not what it used to be...

 

It did more or less specialize in Mitsubishi products, right? Or have I slipped into early Alzheimer’s

Nick you have got it now Mitsubishi and Honda products. Our claim to fame was building a Mitsubishi and taking it to Bonneville and beating Jack Roush "The Cat In The Hat" for a record.

Amsoil Universal Air Filter

 

 

Ea Air Induction Filters

AMSOIL now offers universal air induction filters (EaAU) designed to replace stock oil wetted gauze or foam conical filters that were supplied with custom induction systems produced by K&N, Injen, S&B, Green, AIRAID, AFE, TrueFlow and more. AMSOIL Ea Air Induction Filters offer better efficiency, excellent airflow and are cleanable.

 

More Cold Air = More Horsepower

The basic purpose of the air intake system is to bring cool air from outside the engine compartment into the engine. The cooler air is denser than the air found within the hot engine compartment. The denser charge contains more oxygen than warmer air, providing better combustion through a more effective air/fuel mixture.

 

Another advantage of most specialty-equipment cold air intakes is their consistent diameters and the absence of sharp bends, both of which help to eliminate turbulence in the air stream.

 

Large and Growing Market

According to research done by the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA), a new air intake system is among the first modifications a consumer makes to his or her vehicle. Since changing the air filter alone cannot eliminate air restriction built into the vehicle at the factory, replacing the factory air flow assembly includes replacing the filter, air box and air path. SEMA reports sales of air intakes are over 300,000 every year.

 

While intake kits were initially sold only for performance-type applications, they are now also being marketed and used as a way to boost fuel economy in SUVs, minivans, trucks and more.

 

AMSOIL EaAU

AMSOIL Ea Air Induction Filters fit most of the popular intake systems available. They provide improved cold air intake and a level of engine protection only an Ea Filter can provide. AMSOIL is currently offering nine Ea Air Induction Filters with varying lengths and widths. These filters have flange IDs of 3", 3.5", 4" and 4.5". Since these filters offer a universal fit, AMSOIL provides the dimension sheet below that customers can use to determine the proper filter for their applications.

 

Cleanable

AMSOIL Ea Air Induction Filters are cleanable and long lasting. AMSOIL recommends cleaning the Ea Air Induction Filter when designated by the restriction gauge if the vehicle is so equipped, or according to operating conditions. If it is used in extremely dusty environments or in a performance vehicle, more frequent cleanings may be required.

 

Unique Design

To increase filter surface area and the volume of air entering the engine, the top of the Ea Air Induction Filter is cut away. The media is inserted in a conical form pointing toward the direction of airflow.

 

Quality Construction

AMSOIL Ea Air Induction Filters are made from the same high-quality nanofiber media found in other AMSOIL Ea Air Filters. The nanofiber media is pleated with epoxy-coated wire on the face and back of the media for additional strength and stiffness. High quality, pliable urethane connectors with plastisol potting complete the product. Each Ea Air Induction Filter comes with a clamp for convenient installation

There is a sponsorship program available through Amsoil. There are some requirements that must be met to ensure one knows this is not your daddy's oil. Then there is the media/promotional package. If accepted your are obligated to email results and pictures to Amsoil for the weekly racing results press release. Only serious inquires please.

Here you go: Alamo Oil

 

Go to the contact us page. Fill out the information to include in the "What your question?" what oil you are using. If you have any experience with Amsoil.

 

This is the starting point. Let see what happens from here.

Thanks to all that have been sending me emails.

 

Amsoil is a great product that can reduce your racing cost. A local engine builder did some test for a drag racing team some years ago. He found that Amsoil caused the least damage to the engine verses the other major synthetics oils tested.

 

This is important in stock car racing since there is usually a large amount of dust. Even more true when using a K&N filter, since K&N allow a large amount of dirt through the filter media.

 

Using Amsoil can reduce engine wear and tear downs.

I do.

How about telling me the difference in the following oils

Amsoil,

Mobil 1

royal purple

just to name 3

Why would amsoil be better for my car?

 

Also, why do you want to break in the motors on fossil oils and not synthetics?

Also, what does zink have to do with it and what synthetics add that in, if any?

 

Thanks

Zoom,

There is a lot of mis-information about the additive Zinc, maybe this will clear some things up.

 

The oil additive industry is getting away from the "snake oil" known as PTFE, or Teflon, and going to zinc dialkyldithiophosphate, which I will call "zinc" from now on.

It is claimed that the new zinc-related products can prove better protection over the PTFE-related products, and naturally, the PTFE gang disputes those claims.

Now, zinc is part of the standard additive package in virtually every major brand of engine oil sold today.

Organic zinc compounds are used as extreme pressure, anti-wear additives, and are found in larger amounts in oils specifically blended for high-revving, turbocharged or racing applications. The zinc in your oil comes into play only when there is actual metal-to-metal contact within your engine, which should never occur under normal operating conditions. However, if you race, or occasionally play tag with the redline on the tach in your street car, the zinc is your last line of defense. Under extreme conditions, the zinc compounds react with the metal to prevent scuffing, particularly between cylinder bores and piston rings.

 

Now, this is the important part to remember - research shows that more zinc does not give you more protection, it merely prolongs the protection if the rate of metal-to-metal contact is abnormally high or extended. Except for unusually extreme conditions, adding extra zinc compounds to your oil is usually a waste. Also, keep in mind that high zinc content can lead to deposit formation on your valves, and spark plug fouling.

You can find zinc in several engine additives sold at the local parts store.You can identify zinc content by reading the label; any product with zinc must state so on a Federally mandated sticker. The zinc phosphate or additive is a known eye irritant, capable of inflicting severe harm if it comes in contact with your eyes.

Also, In recent years, oil companies are voluntarily reducing the amount of zinc content in most of their products, as research shows the zinc is responsible for premature deterioration and damage to catalytic converters. Obviously this situation won't affect our race cars, but is something to think about if you want to do the Zinc additive routine to your street vehicle.

You can draw your own conclusions as to the benefits of Zinc in any quantities other that those which the oil industry is already adding to their pproduct.
