To quote myself from the other thread, this isn't so much about a "magic oil" but knowing that oils are made for specific purposes, they have limited lifetimes, and your engine oil needs to be treated with respect in a performance motor.

"Personally, $30 for a test every oil change, changes every 5k miles, using the highest quality oil available, and having a startup/shutdown process seems to be minimal investment vs even just a bearing replacement (which may or may not be necessary proactively to prevent full failure)"
