We have speed shop here that sells it..Go to Redline site to find Dealer..
I am sure you can find a Straight Syn 50 wt somewhere..
You need to run a catch can from the vent to save the oil..
It suck's until someone finds a solution..
Herman from Horsepower by Herman said he is working on a Fix..

You want Redline SAE50 Race oi (it's actually 15w50)l. DO NOT put motor oil into the blower. The temperature of the crankcase is far too hot for motor oil. With the blow-off valve, you will need to add oil to the blower periodically.

I bought a gallon. The RedLine 50W race oil is very difficult to buy in any local autoparts stores or performance shops. PepBoys doesn't have it either.

Here's the link for Fischer Motorsports:

Rich,You are right, I just checked the Redline 50wt i have for the KB Blower..It says 50wt race 0il on the front and 15w 50 on the back,,
I was told to use this by Jim Bell.
Before i knew better i changed Blower oil and used Castrol Syn, 20w50 and on a Florida trip it turned Black..
