I always use Protek-R. It's made by Pettit Racing. A well known and very well established Rotary shop.

Ok I will use the OMP and some good racing two stroke oil premix. Premix at 1 oz per gallon of fuel.

Now see my next question about octane.

I could get an S4 front cover and find a mechnical OMP and rig something up but I don't know how that works with the S5 front counterweight and it doesn't solve the problem that I only have 2/4 oil injector ports (custom intake manifold).

To the OP: I would say this is the best option for your SA/FB. You can run dedicated premix in an auxiliary tank and run some nice synthetic oil in the engine.
Front cover has nothing to do with counterweights.

Plug the other two outlets, roughtly 2x the oil will be delivered to the remaining ports

I run Idemitsu through an adapter through the OMP. Then about .6oz./gal in the tank. Has worked great and I'm probably one of the few people who have seen my rotor housings regularily so I can tell you which works and which "seems to work just fine"

Pre-mixing in the tank gives the added benefit of being able to disperse the oil throughout the combustion chamber rather than just on the tips of the apex seals.

MMO isn't much of a lubricant, and it isn't even remotely comparable to 2 stroke oil.

I have used the PCV Technologies metering pump adapter with nothing but Amsoil for about 15 years on the 1994 that I have had for 17 years .

I tired to keep the post there, but it would've required backing out, and going to the admin panel, and banning him the hard way... I decided it wasn't worth it..... especially because he probably saw it as he was online when his ass was banned

So just to clarify.... no I'm not mad at Garfinkle
