AMSOIL Expands Signature Series Line
As racers we have to tow our cars to the track and one of the best oils for your tow vehicles is AMSOIL’s newly expanded Signature Series line which includes 0W-20, 5W-30, and 10W-30 Synthetic Motor Oils joining the established 0W-30. The new Signature Series line features all-new packaging and represents the very best motor oils AMSOIL has to offer, allowing you to take advantage of maximum extended drain intervals. These Signature Series oils are recommended for drain intervals of up to 25,000 miles/one year, whichever comes first (15,000 miles/one year in severe service conditions).
With the recent introduction of AMSOIL OE Synthetic Motor Oil—made for original equipment manufacturers’ recommended drain intervals—and the recent reformulation of XL Synthetic Motor Oil—made for twice-a-year oil changes—the AMSOIL Signature Series with its 25,000-mile or one year oil change offers three distinct lines of high-quality synthetic motor oil, appealing to every customer’s need.

See-Through Oil Filter Assembly
Billet Connection has developed a new patent pending Billet Aluminum Oil Filter Assembly. This new filter assembly allows the user to inspect the filter element without draining or leaking any oil, unbolting or loosening any fasteners or fittings, and without losing any oil out of the oil system. This can be done in seconds after the engine is shut off, even when filtering non-transparent fluids like engine oil.
This filter assembly allows the user to visually see the filter element and the contaminants and particles that have been filtered out of the oil system. This helps to determine if the contaminants and particles are from normal use or from bearings or other components excessively wearing in the engine. This filter also allows a visual inspection of the oil pumping through the filter to determine the condition of the oil.
