Nothing does. But there are conditional factors that do affect it's severity.

Aftermarket bearings are another matter.

Wrong, 10W-60 is fine. Although you have to take certain things into consideration. Warm-up prior to running hard, climate (warm vs cold), how you run the car, etc. There are many Stroker builders out here in California that still use 10W-60. I like Troy but he’s not the Almighty God.

Never said anything about Troy.

And strokers don't run OEM bearings.

but the redline was no different from the OEM fluid it replaced @15kish when it was 5 years old (but i was using 0w-60 engine oil at the time, nothing ever felt different)

Sorry, I quoted the wrong post. And I never said strokers run oem bearings. I was talking about oil.
