AMS $$$$$$

I have done allot of research on AMS to find a place that sells it cheaper than the AMS web site. Not much luck.

Do you know of a cheaper place that sells ams than AMS.

Thank you very much

Thats what I figured but wanted to be sure. I cant remember if dealers can deviate on the pricing anymore or not. Shoot a pm to Raul@stealthautomotive here. He;s a dealer. Otherwise use the dealer locater on amsoils website to see if you have one local.

Another option is Schaeffers oil. Its just as good if not better than amsoil and runs about 10 bucks a gallon cheaper

The biggest advantage

to using AMSOIL is the fact it is fully synthetic. Though others state full synthetic on their containers, they are fossil fuel based oils with synthetic additives. No other manufacturer gives a 25,000 mile or one year guarantee between changes. There may indeed be others that are equal, (I can't think of one), but none better IMHO.

not a fan of scamsoil either, there are charts around that show it will break down/shear very quickly with the huei injectors.
