Not your average "what type of oil to use" question.
1. Do any engine buiders/overhaulers, ie. Matrix, etc...., recommend runing Mineral Oil during the break-in period for a rebuilt/overhauled engine?
2. Is anyone familiar with a place that will perform an oil analysis on an oil sample, is this a common practice with hi-performance engines?
The reason I ask is that I am in school to become an aviation mechanic and we are covering a section on lubrication systems. The above two practices were brought to my attention and they seem like they may work in automotive applications.
As far as the oil analysis, I was told that it only cost about $15 a sample and they send you a breakdown of all the materials found in the oil to help diagnose the condition of your engine.
