BTW my car is my DD and I do race the car when ever I have the opportunity.

Good stuff, been using it for 2 years. I believe it has better lubricity values than thre Mobil 1

I have used Mobil 1, Castrol Edge and RP. I felt most comfortable with Castrol in the car. The engine made more noise when hot outside with the RP that did not make me feel comfortable with it.

Royal Purple Synthetic SAE 5W - 30, best in my opinion, with a K/N Filter.

your exhaust must smell delicious.

i picked up 5 quarts of royal purple and was given a free mobil1 filter since they didn't have k&n filters available, which is what the special is supposed to be for over at autozone. i made them order me one and i will be back in the morning to get another 5 quarts and the k&n filter though.
