Does their product meet the Chevrolet Cobalt owners manual specified GM4718M performance requirement, (not all oils do), so as to help protect your Cobalt engine warranty? D. Where is there oils Product Data Sheet so you can see the results of accepted standard oil industry SAE and ASTM test results, so you can compare their product with other oils?

I do have some test results available regarding this oil.
this oil has been around for awhile. its a race oil from PA. its used in professional race engines as well. and my engine warranty and gm standards doesnt concern me at all. i will be pulling my engine out of my car within a year and building a high performance engine

just incase anyone else wanted to know about brad penn oils

Penn Grade 1® High Performance Oils
The term “100% Pure Pennsylvania Grade Crude Oil” has long carried with it an industry connotation for being one of the best sources of high quality lubricant base stocks in the world. Our BRAD PENN® refinery, the oldest continuously operating lube oil refinery in the United States, still refines 100% Pennsylvania grade crude oil. PA grade crude oil is a very thermally stable paraffinic crude oil which contains no asphaltic constituents. This makes it an ideal choice from which to refine premium quality base oils. Because we use only one crude stock, our refined products are of consistently high quality and performance.
BRAD PENN® brand products are truly “MADE IN THE U.S.A.” American Refining Group’s Bradford, PA refinery is the home of “The Green Oil®” that racers, engine builders and enthusiasts alike have all come to know and love! The unique green color and outstanding performance of our Penn Grade 1 High Performance Oils set them apart from the competition.
BRAD PENN® Penn Grade 1® High Performance Oils are formulated using a unique base oil cut from our tower, which gives our Penn Grade 1® High Performance Oils exceptional film strength. This unique base oil causes our Penn Grade 1®High Performance Oil to cling tenaciously to engine parts to minimize wear during high engine torque loading and/or periods of heavily stressed operation such as those experienced during competition. This same oil ‘cling’ helps prevent ‘dry-start’ conditions to minimize wear even after the engine has been sitting idle for extended periods.
BRAD PENN® Penn Grade 1® High Performance Oils also contain highly effective detergent and dispersant additives to guarantee exceptional engine cleanliness as well as oxidation and foam inhibitors that offer protection against thermal degradation and air entrainment.
In addition to our unique base oil cut, increased concentration of “zinc” (zinc dialkyldithiophosphate a.k.a. ZDDP) provides outstanding anti-wear/anti-scuffing protection for engines employing either ‘flat tappet’ or roller cams. BRAD PENN® Penn Grade 1® High Performance Oils have been evaluated by a number of premiere camshaft manufacturers with tremendous success. Many are now recommending our Penn Grade 1® High Performance Oils to provide outstanding protection for their ‘flat tappet’ or roller cams.
The American Refining Group, Inc. offers a comprehensive line of BRAD PENN® lubricants such as gear oil, grease and other items to meet the majority of High Performance needs. We also offer a complete line of lubricants for today’s passenger car, fleet, commercial and industrial applications.

they are stricly based in pa. everything in their oil comes from within 400 miles of the refinery. so its an oil being used up there with the other best oils but it doesnt have to be chemically altered to be synthetic, and its actually cheaper then the other big name brands since everything is done so close to them

im not sure who all distributes for them. slowboy racing has it though

So the extra zinc in this case is not a benefit, but a big detriment to the expensive catalytic convertor.
Again, I don't recommend using racing oils in a street engine. Apples and oranges.
im not even going to be running a cat anyway
