Dave Digba, owner of Dynamic
Auto of Elk Grove Village, Illinois, installs
Carroll Superchargers that add about 150 HP
to a stock Calloway Corvette engine. Dynamic
Auto installs AMSOIL 100% Synthetic 10W-30,
ATF, and 80W-90 Gear Lube in all of the vehicles
they put Carroll Superchargers into.
Carroll Supercharger turns a typical 285 HP
Corvette engine that normally runs at 4200 RPM
into a monster that runs at 3500 RPM and delivers
435 HP. The supercharger makes these
high-performance cars 25-45 mph faster, and
as Vette Magazine said, the added horsepower
"makes other Corvette drivers out there
wonder if their new Vettes are pulling a trailer!"
The Carroll Supercharger adds
about 6.5 pounds of boost pressure to an engine
which creates much greater temperatures and
slightly higher rates of oil blow-by (oil blowing
by the piston). This makes the choice of a high-quality
engine oil a necessity.
Originally, Greg Carroll,
the creator of the supercharger, specified Mobil
1 as the only lubricant to use in the engine.
He wanted to stress the importance of using
synthetic oil in this high-powered dynamo to
such an extent that he installed a small metal
decal on the top of the engine informing customers
to use only Mobil 1.
He hadn't heard of AMSOIL
yet. After Dave sent a sample of AMSOIL to Mr.
Carroll, that decal came off. According to Dave,
Carroll felt that AMSOIL was superior to Mobil
1 in protecting engines and drivetrain components.
In other words, it's the best oil he's seen.
