What's in the Box

Info

ZDDP-enhanced Engine Break-In Lube Oil Additive from COMP Cams provides maximum engine life while also allowing it to reach its full performance potential. It does so by improving the surface mating of valve train components (especially flat tappets), rotating assembly, rod journals, piston rings, valve guides and other vital areas of the engine. This proprietary break-in lube formula includes the optimum amount of critical additives ZDDP (Zinc & Phosphorus), Molybdenum, detergents and high grade base oil.

The multi-viscosity, mineral-based COMP Cams Engine Break-In Oil Additive is fully-formulated and requires no additives or supplements. In addition, the oil is fully compatible with gasoline, methanol and high octane racing fuels.

Notes

A lot has happened over the last year that affects your engine. The biggest is the reduction of zinc in the oils you use. Zinc is a great anti-friction additive but it also gets burned in the combustion chamber and then goes out the tailpipe of your car or truck. This adds to the pollution problem on street driven cars, but not so much in race engines as they tend to be more efficient and have a better ring package. 

Odds are, the oil you are using does not have as much zinc in it anymore and you need to add break-in and lube additive. If not, you can wipe out your new cam and lifters in the first 30 seconds of running.  Adding Comp Cams Break-In additive when you assemble your engine and with each oil change will ensure you have enough additives to help keep your engine alive. 

Simply pour in a bottle for initial break-in, run the engine for approximately 1,000 miles, drain the system thoroughly and then refill with clean oil and another bottle at each oil change.

This stuff works

February 17, 2012
I wiped out a cam lobe in my small block engine last year due largely in part to poor quality of currently available engine oil. After replacing the cam and lifters, I have added Comp Cams break in additive at every oil change since. Contact surfaces show minimal if any wear.
Pros:
  • Durable
  • Easy To Install
Yes, I recommend this product.

I use this on every new eng, start up.

April 20, 2010
I have about 35 new engine start ups, and have used comp break in oil in all of them. Never had a lifter problem. I start the engine, run the rpm up to 2000 for 20 minutes, then I do the final tuning, take it for a test drive, bring it back, change the oil, filter, and add another bottle of comp break in oil. Maximun time on engine before changing oil/filer, and another bottle of comp is 45 to 60 minutes. It has worked so far. The maximun lift flat tappet cam I have used is 525 thousands
Pros:
  • It works as advertised
Yes, I recommend this product.
