    No forum would be complete without the sometimes heated debate about what's the best Synthetic oil to put into the engine.

    So what is your favorite and/or what do you think is the best Synthetic oil to put into the Hellcat? My choice is Penzoil Ultra Platinum. Based on all the real world tests/oil analysis I've seen and read it can't be beat.

    Yeah I saw the commercial recently for pennzoil ultra platinum. Might go with that instead of API Licensed Royal purple even tho RP has made quite an impression a good one at that on my super bee. If the pennzoil used at the dealership was 0w-40 then it really wasn't great whatever they were using because it made my car sluggish and not very responsive and choppy in my super bee 6.4 392 engine.

    Yeah do your research on PUP @HellcatdotClub . I think you'll come away very very pleased. There's a whole culture of guys out there who really know their stuff and have done some extended oil drain intervals using Ultra Platinum, sent it off for analysis, and came back with some great numbers.

    Check out bobistheoilguy.com. You'll have a whole new appreciation for Synthetics and see that they are not all the same. The guys there get into the minutia of synthetics.

    Yep, that is exactly what I decided also! I will change it early the first time and then get on a regular schedule as recommended. Great advice from everyone!! Thanks.:)

    You don't think it will come from the factory with that? I guess I assumed that this is what it would have when we got it since that is recommended. :rolleyes:I will totally have mine changed before I leave if it isn't in there.
