I havent tested it with my SX but i did switch it over at first oil change. How ever when i went to school at UTI (universal technical institute ) in Norwood, MA... in my hot rod 1b class where we had blueprinted 350's earlier in another class my group tested it. We made a base run. Let it cool down. Changed the oil to royal purple, then dynoed again. We saw a 7hp increase under the same conditions (temp, humidity, same rpms etc.. )
Yeah I believe it can yield extra power, but I mean oil analysis in the chemical sense. Like at the end of the change interval how much tin, etc has it picked up. Basically how contaminated the oil is.
