Engine oil preference.

For those who have a drag race only package, what is your engine oil of choice and why? I know the application can make one oil more desirable than another, such as a N/A set up over a boosted or Nitrous set up. Same with engine rpm, a high winding (over 8k) might require different oil than sub 8k applications. Thoughts?

Oil depends if your engine was put together tight or loose. Most people I know use straight 50 weight. I use 20 to 50 weight. Amsoil. With Zink

Why would a drag race engine be put together tight?
