Got washers too. Snug and leak free fit. Different wrench size. Couldn’t find the right Dimple brand recommended here. Amazon

Now that you're out of warranty you can use anything you want. Any good synthetic is 0W-40 with API SN is fine and a great filter easy to get at O'Reilly is the WIX 57899XP.

I don't actually use one but there are also universal filter magnets to help trap even more metal particles at the oil filter. Just putting this out there.

6 Quarts of engine oil is enough on a 2015 Hellcat. Try to stick to the owners manual and what the manufacturer says. If I understand correctly you bought the car used - so I would let it run for some time and enjoy it. There is no point in buying expensive stuff like magnetic plugs that are supposed to help with longevity when you car suffers a serious defect in the coming months due to the previous owner. Drive safely and enjoy!

Since the car is used and I assume passed your used car check out with flying colors you should ask the previous owner what he used to allow the engine to get to 80K miles with no issues.

My WAG is he probably used what the factory recommends: Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 0w-40 Full Synthetic oil or its equivalent of which there are several: Amsoil, I think Valvoline (but I am NOT sure do double check!) and there is now even a "Mopar" branded oil which is probably just Pennzoil rebottled.

Several dealers in CA and one dealer in AR discount this oil to around $6/quart. That's on par with "lesser" oils so why compromise to save pennies?

And I just stuck with the factory filter.
