    Pennzoil or Mobil work well with the SRTs.

    I've run Mobile 1 in my previous SRT... Cats no different... IMHO any of the high end synthetics will be fine just make sure you use the right viscosity.

    Shell Rotella T6 5-40 runs great in my srt's

    Haven't tried it in the cat yet, but I looked at the specs compared to the Penzoil UP, essentially the same

    Mobil one 5 w 30 full synthetic in all my daily driver cars. Will use pennzoil ultra srt 0 40 see picture above... at $4 per quart at autozone was a no brainer. ($2 rebate makes it $2 per quart)

    Motor Oil is like religion and politics. Makes for some heated discussions.

    My interpretation of the owners manual is this:

    Use a 0W-40 weight synthetic motor oil that is either SN rated and/or Chrysler Material Standard MS-12633 rated.

    The Pennzoil Ultra 0W-40 is a no brainer as it's called out as the recommended oil. Mobil 1 0W40 is SN rated and I believe it's an acceptable alternative based on how I read the owners manual.

    Anything that meets the documented criteria should be acceptable.


    Owners manual page below.

    That's the oil I have been putting in my cat so far

    I have used rotella t6 in all my other srt's without issue.

    I agree, It does not meet the "spec" but if you do a deep dive into the Technicl data sheets, they are essentially the same

    Just my .02, I have had good luck and I buy whichever is on sale . . . between the pensoil, Rotella, Amsoil. I don't use Mobil 1 - Too much lifter noise based on my 3 srt's in the past

    For peace of mind, follow the user manual and srt recommendations for sure

    I was just on Mobil Oil site and you can tell them what car you have and they will advise what oil to use!

    The reply was they do not have a product that meets SRT specs!

    Royal Purple 0w40! Tested better than any other motor oil on the market for engine protection.
