well upon hours of research on nasioc.com i decided to just go with what i had locally and bought redline for 29.99 for 4 quarts, and another single qt for 7.99. I decided to run 10w30 for now and maybe next oil change ill goto 10w40, if i like it ill stay with it forever probably. Btw if your looking for royal purple or redline i noticed alot of "local" stores such as monument auto parts or stockton auto parts carry this stuff rather than autozone or kragen n such. The guy at the store offered me a K&N oil filter, walked straight out the door =) Anyone agree that pureone filters are 2nd best next to the new subaru oem ones?

+1 i just made the switch 2 days ago and i didnt notice a huge difference but when the car just sits there and idles you can tell its a lot happier and smoother for sure!

Interesting post.
I was just in for my 1st oil change @ 3k mi, on a new '07 wrx.
when i pulled into the bay at the dealership, they asked if i wanted a blend of conventional/synthetic...
they recommended the blend and for an extra $6, i had it done. any opinions?

Castrol GTX you mean. anyway, Robby, where do you buy your Purple? i know that Summit sells it, and Pep Boys. I've been contemplating about changing from Mobil 1, and Wal-Mart sells it for 6.76 i think. only in 5w30 though. will it make a difference if its 5w30 or 10w40? because that picture showed the 10w40.
I'm pretty erked right now because i just changed my oil friday.. damnit.

I switched to Royal Purple and a PureOne filter at my first oil change at 1000 miles and the car has been nothing but happy.

Subaru recommends an ILSAC GF-4 grade oil or API SM oil marked "Energy Conserving". As for viscosity, Subaru recommends 5W-30.

Keep in mind "True" synthetic oils are Group IV oils that have a base stock of PAOs. Mobil 1 is classified Group III, and it's base stock is factionally distilled petroleum that has been hydrocracked.
