GT-1® Competition

Conventional Motor Oil with Liquid Titanium®

Kendall® GT-1 Competition Motor Oil with Liquid Titanium protection additive is a high-quality, conventional automotive engine oil designed for use in gasoline-fueled passenger cars and light trucks that do not require an ILSAC GF-5 oil for warranty coverage. The SAE 20W-50 and SAE 50 viscosity grades are especially recommended for use in high-performance street engines and competition engines, including both gasoline- and alcohol-fueled racing vehicles.

Features & Benefits

  • Exclusive Liquid Titanium protection additive provides extra protection against engine wear
  • Formulated for engines equipped with turbochargers or superchargers
  • Excellent resistance to viscosity and thermal breakdown at high temperatures
  • Protects against sludge and varnish formation
  • Protects against rust and bearing corrosion
  • Highly resistant to foaming
  • High ZDDP content for additional wear protection for engines with flat-tappet camshafts (SAE 20W-50)
  • Racetrack-proven performance


  • Gasoline-fueled passenger cars, light trucks and sport utility vehicles that do not require an ILSAC GF-5 oil for warranty coverage
  • Older vehicles where the engine manufacturer specifies monograde engine oil
  • Competition engines and high-performance street engines
