AMSOIL and Lingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE) have formed a strategic partnership with a mission to push the bounds of vehicle performance. AMSOIL products are now the “Official Lubricants of LPE.”

“The choice for us was performance based,” said Mark Rapson, COO/VP of Operations for Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. “The synergy from a technical standpoint is why we wanted to align ourselves with AMSOIL.

“We are continuously pushing the performance envelope of today’s late-model platforms,” he continued. “700+ hp, high-rpm, naturally aspirated engines and 1,000+ hp supercharged and turbocharged street cars are now very common. The technology that makes this possible – computerization, DI, hotter and leaner combustion cycles – all bring special demands to engine components, including motor oil.”

“Lingenfelter is a technology-driven company,” said AMSOIL Chairman & CEO Alan Amatuzio. “They are constantly working to push automotive performance forward and they are only interested in high-quality components. We share those values, and we are excited for the product-development opportunities this partnership holds.”

Who is LPE?

Lingenfelter Performance Engineering offers in-house performance-engineered products that aim to provide “winning performance through innovative engineering.” LPE was founded in 1973 and has become a globally recognized brand in the performance-engineering industry. The company offers engine building, engine and chassis tuning components and installation for vehicle owners; component product development and services to manufacturers, aftermarket and original equipment suppliers; prototype and preparation of product-development vehicles; late product life-cycle performance improvements; durability testing; and show and media event vehicles.

The Best Performance

“During our R&D work, we began to experiment with and evaluate top oil brands to understand performance differences in given applications,” said Rapson. “We were surprised at the differing results and found that AMSOIL gave the best performance in our application. This led us to contact AMSOIL.

“We’re excited to work with them, offering detailed technical data for existing products, and input for the development of future products.”

Features of the partnership will

• AMSOIL products are the Official Lubricants of LPE.
• AMSOIL will provide lubricants for all Lingenfelter Performance Engineering builds.
• AMSOIL will be the official lubricants partner for the Lingenfelter racing team.

The Lingenfelter Collection

While our partnership is centered on performance engineering, Lingenfelter owner Ken Lingenfelter has assembled an eye-popping collection of vehicles known as the Lingenfelter Collection.

Lingenfelter grew up with an appreciation for stylish, high-performance automobiles and purchased his first Corvette* in 1977. He acquired additional cars as his passion grew, including several significant muscle cars, Corvettes and exotic European cars from around the world.
