Nice. surprised it uses 40 weight as a recommended viscosity. Higher viscosity has always been better for an engine, but at the expense of fuel economy. Considering the relatively high compression combined with a turbocharger, it's always much better to use synthetic since it has a higher temperature threshold.

Someone explain why the royal purple is great. I'm a newb.
It's well know in Racing circles is all. It offers excellent protection , obviously, but there are arguably better synthetics out there. AMSOIL is in my opinion the best synthetic available due to it's longer drain periods and superior volatility rating. At the end of the day if you choose Royal Purple you will still be in good hands...

Forgot to mention that a few people have even commented that they get better oil pressure when they switched over to AMSOIL (is it true? I don't know, don't kill the messenger and all that)

amsoil is the only 100% syn on the market, the rest are fully syn which is a mix. Asmoil also lowers temp by 10-15 degrees, proven in harleys. you are correct amsoil is #1

amsoil warrenty also exceeds manufactors or dodge's warranty, in other words if dodge won't cover damage because you used amsoil. Amsoil will. No other oil on the market does that
