I was thinking the exact same thing. Busting my balls cause its considerably cheaper than say Redline or OEM. It doesn't say it on the website but apparently it still does on the bottle as well as confirmation from Valvoline. Below is a thread from BF.com where someone emailed them and received an email back with an official letterhead stating compatibilty, LT71141 being one of them. I'm going this route.
