I've used Amsoil Diesel and Marine for the last 12 years in my 23 years old 454 Mags. The last 4 years small blowers added. 1 was torn down for the first time 2 weeks ago and the bearings looked like they could've been reused.I'm staying with Amsoil.

Don't use coconut oil because it turns solid below 65* and makes engine cranking a little difficult. Peanut oil is OK.

i was amazed at how clean the insides of this engine was.usually an oil that contains a lot of zddp will have black deposits on the bottom of the pan.this engine did not.

heavy deposits can come as to what group of an oil base it is - meaning Group I will leave heavy deposits, Group II a little better at not, Group III getting a whole lot cleaner, Group IV and V are your true syn based oils - Group IV is PAO base with possible slight ester mix and Group V is Ester based with possible slight POA mix these do better jobs at deposit control.

Also deposit control with oil changes in a correct timely manner. Also internal engine heat and a motor oil that can control oxidation play a role deposit control and helps with corrosion.

Also calcium additive in the oil helps for deposit control but its like everything - balance is the important key as you do not one additive to take away (strip) from another additive as they all have to do their jobs as well.

Amsoil does well for not leaving deposits.
