Just for giggles I tried some syntec in my company truck, a 93 Ford F-150 6 cylinder with 300,000 miles on it. I understood that the synthetic oil was supposed to reduce friction and since I was having trouble with it getting warm while towing my hot rod I decided to try it. The results, lower overall engine temperature and it has also gone from using a quart of oil every other tank to almost burning no oil at all. Thats what I know from personal experience, not sure if I'd wanna' use it in my rod but I guess it wouldn't hurt.
