Royal Purple oil

For my fellow ME members out there that use royal purple for their oil, this will be my first time using it does anyone have a preferred weight to purchase?

I wouldn't do a rp oil change on a car with that many miles unless the engine is in awesome shape and it's been on a premium synthetic it's whole life. I find rp to be a tiny bit thinner and it could upset the way the engine is wearing. I've used it once in my Mach and it was nothing special. Changing back to castrol syntec / edge. Want to make a difference? Go with a better filter.

Yeah I've been using castrol, and I've been using a Bosch filter... What's a better filter?

Yeah with that many miles keep using what you're using its pretty pricey and that many miles it'll eventually crap out, if its doing good stick with it. I do run 5w-30 royal purple.

Amsoil filter if you are crazy about your oil and have deep pockets. I use Motorcraft oil and filters on everything, change every 5k-6k miles and its all been good.
