Reminds me of ARCO Graphite.

I wonders how small the MoS2 particles are.

They are micro not nano. Only usefull if you have minor ongoing damage or contact. This will impregnate the solid particles. Other wise do not use on a flat tappet cam as it blocks the oil entrance to the cam oil film. I think their other product that has both Boron and MOS2 might be better for rings and pistons. Actually they are really not cost effective on a
properly maintained motor.

Why not use a oil that has a high amount of Moly from the start? Such as Redline Motor oil.

Forget about the additive. Rotella T6, Mobil 1 Delvac, Mobil 1 TDT will all serve you well without adding anything else to it. Redline will just rob your wallet. Yes, your engine has a flat tappet cam.
