Also said we DO NOT RECOMEND SYNTHENTIC OR SYNTH-BLEND in flat tappet applications Reason being the sythetic does not allow the lifters to properly travel the surface of the camshaft Lobe. this is from a rep at COMP CAMS who also builds race motors for the last 20 yrs.
P.S. my oil pressure never droped and i used synthetic blend oil. and i had 7000 mi. on motor
