Royal Purple Oil

My first oil change is coming up and was thinking of going with a K/N filter and Royal Purple oil. Any one here ever use it? Anything better than this Oil?
Thanks

I usually use Amsoil, but I used RP on my last oil change. So far so good.

What I did was become a "preferred" customer at Amsoil.com. I can now buy at dealer cost. My first purchase more than paid for my 'membership'
Thats what I would do. I changed over everything to Amsoil....engine 0w30, tranny, and rear end as well as an Amsoil oil filter. Car felt better than ever after the change over.
I also used Royal Purple 5w30 in the engine of my '99 WS6 which I sold to buy the GOAT. Had almost 50k when I sold it....never used a drop of oil.

Nice set up. I have a good hook up on Royal about 4 bucks a quart. I got it sittin in the garage now just waitin on me. I checked out amsoil online and I have to say that there history with synthetics is awsome, for my next change I'll go to all amsoil..... What weight of oil is recommended for tranny and rear end. thanks guys

For the rearend Amsoil Severe Gear 75w140 ) no friction modifier needed its already in there)
M6 transmission use Amsoil Synthetic ATF
For the engine Amsoil Series 2000 0w30 Servere Service oil and a EA032 filter.
Using this stuff you should be able to go 10,000 miles between changes. But get an oil analysis done to be safe. Amsoil says you can go 35,000 on oil and 25,000 on filter.....so they say.....
I don't put on a lot of miles so I am going 1 year between changes should be about 6-8 k for me.
Enjoy your ride

+1 on the Royal Purple....The stuff Rocks!

Unlike Amsoil, you can get RP at most good auto parts stores.
