He also covers some testimonials as far as high ZDDP oils and occurences of engine failures, vs using high performing oils.
That's fine.

I didn't think there was any debate about the benefits of adequate ZDDP for a non-roller engine, but everyone is entitled to their opinion.

Why would you risk it? Just use Rotella T5 10W-30 or a 30-grade cycle oil like Motul.
