Royal purple synthetic is uber good. However, I have to use Mobile 1 15w50 because of what I am running. I havent seen royal purple in that yet. If it exists, let me know.

From what I've been told, Royal Purple is overpriced, and overrated. Its a good oil, don't get me wrong, but it's not the fantastic wonder juice everyone makes it out to be.

Valvoline Full Syn FTW!

I haven't tried Royal Purple
This my first time with full syn on the Y8 engine and I love it.
It's smoother and sounds great in high rpm's compared to conventional oil
