    Thanks for the reply. Do you follow the oil life gauge or just change every 5k miles?

    Started off with Mobil 1 Synthetic and switched to Royal Putple. Both are great, RP seems to last longer.

    Switched to Pennzoil after this became the recommended oil for SRT's have used both RP and Mobile 1 in the past. I really don't think you can make a bad decision here.
