It only sez it has ZDDP. Doesn't say how much or how little. ;)

Every oil change I dump in a bottle of ZDDPlus. Buy them in bulk and they run around $8 a bottle. Have not had a cam failure since I started using it. There are other oils with more than enough to not have to add it, but this was the easy button for me. Yeah, watch out for the Chevy lifters if you want to run high lift cams. Not sure what lift they become a problem at, but I know that its a real problem. By the time you buy the cam, the valley pan gasket, the front cover gaskets, double row timing chain, oil and coolant change....just spend the few extra bucks and get good lifters.

I've heard that the ZDDP additive gets filtered out of the oil.
