Oh really, please explain to me why "Break-in" oils always have more
dispersants (detergents are water soluble) in their formulations than
normal engine oils...

Default oil

Don't use break in oil. Always used 30w non-detergent. Never had a problem with any engine that I either built myself, or had professionally done.
One of my good friends used to run a local race track with a mini- stock, and always smoked, because he always used high detergent oil first oil change.. After he assembled an engine using a paste made of 30-w, and Bon-Ami, the problem went away.
