I don't have many words, but all I can say is DAMN. I felt all the difference automatically since I have switched from Mobil 1. I know it's expensive, but well worth it. I recommend buying the 5 gallon bucket of it for 130.00 or so. Comes to 6.50 a quart, not a bad deal since I paid 7.50 a quart buying individually. Anyone who is not using it in their WRX is missing the full potential of their car.
So is it ok to switch from conventional to royal purple? All I have used since buying the car has been conventional oil, thinking about changing...even though my mechanic told me not to use synthetic...
Put it this way, I had a ton of M1 left, I started putting it in my lawnmower (it made a huge difference)..... Hows that ? Royal Purple states to allow 2k break in b4 using in a new "unbroken engine" , I would go w/that. All I can say is "USE NO OTHER".
Has anyone used AMSOIL or have any knowledge of the info presented in this link? I have always heard about how good RP is never any cons. This link is the first...however it is from a competitor. So the whole containing "moly" concern may be minimal if not nonexistent?
Everybody competes for sales. That's just AMSOIL's pitch. I don't like when they go after each other like that. I might believe all that BUT, I do my changes every 3K.... regardless what the company states.
I would have to agree that rp is one of the best lubricants on the market. We are a supplier of their product and use it in all of our vehicles. Synchromax being one of the best improvements for a smoother shifting transmission. xceptionalauto.com call for best pricing out there. Never listen to a mechanic that says not to use synthetic oil the molecules do not break down like they do in a regular oil. Synthetic oil can generally be added to a new motor after about 500 miles given time for the rings to seat, but some race engines synthetic is used right after startup
royal purple is the shiz, zman, i would go with a different mechanic if he advises away from synthetic oil on a performance car. or any car for that matter.
Well, I have allready got into arguments about this a long time ago, my mechanic is not someone I would doubt, I think in this situation he was just quoting something that subaru told him...wihch was dont use synthetic in subarus. But I'm thinkin thats a bunch of car politics talking. Search it on NASIOC and you will see people talking about it. What about you dumdum/naggy, synthetic>conventional in wrx's?
how does oil make your car run better? what differences did you notice over Mobil 1?
I never noticed any difference in different oils.
Well, the Royal Purp makes a better lubricant for all your moving parts... Such as crankshaft and such... I guess it's kind of like getting a lightweight crank pulley... reduces rotating mass, but not really the mass, just the force to push it, never mind i'm too confused right now
