Amsoil,royal purple and red-line are true synthetic oils made from group 4 basestocks. Mobil 1,castle syntec and many others say they are synthetics but they aren't. They are made from a hydrocracked group 3 basestock which is a Dino oil. The best bang for your buck is the SSO line from Amsoil in a 0w30 weight. When used with the Amsoil filter it will last 25000 miles before you need to change it,15000 miles if it's considered severe service. It's the best oil on the market today. However rp and red-line make a great product too and any of the 3 would be a fine choice. I suggest a 0w30 or 0w40 weight for mod motors. They love to rev and need the added protection those oil weights provide.

Mobil 1 is a good oil but they lied when they labelled it synthetic. That's all I ever said

Huh. Not really a fair market assessment as Amsoil wasn't included in the testing. Royal purple lived up to it's claims tho. I wonder who did the testing. Was it an independent lab and if so who was footing the bill. I don't always trust these types of write ups because we don't know who is behind the scenes.

But if your just gonna follow the 3000 mile oil change interval just buy whatever is cheapest. All oil even wal-mart super-tech oil can go 5000 miles. The key to synthetics is the extended drain interval.

Mobil 1 Sythetic (yes I know it's not a "true" by definition sythetic but the engine loves it)
