Comp's Break-In Oil
Engineers at Comp Cams and Endure Performance Lubricants have been working hand-in-hand to develop a full line of auto-motive lubricants, the first being Comp's ZDDP-enhanced Engine Break-In Oil.
The new Break-In Oil provides maximum protection during initial engine break-in and was heavily tested by the Comp Cams R&D team. This advanced lubricant provides maximum engine life while also allowing motors to reach their full performance potential. The specially formulated oil improves the surface mating of valvetrain components (especially flat tappets), the rotating assembly, rod journals, piston rings, valve guides, and other vital areas of the engine.

Eliminate Ethanol Problems
CRC Industries has introduced a revolutionary new fuel additive that stops the damage caused by ethanol before it starts. CRC Phaseguard4 Ethanol Fuel Treatment provides the maximum protection available for E10 to E85 fuel and helps prevent phase separation-the No. 1 cause of ethanol fuel related problems. In gas engines, enthanol can degrade gaskets, glues, and rubber components while also loosening varnish and corrosion deposits-all of which then clog fuel filters, injectors, and intake valves, leading to major (and costly) damage to engines. Phaseguard4's 4-in-1 formula protects against corrosion, cleans the entire fuel system, stabilizes fuel for daily use as well as long-term storage, and restores power and mileage potential.
