    RP is better for salads than for an engine.. Some way back lab tests had shown it to contain mineral oil.. RP makes good oil filters that's about it. I would'nt run that sh*t in my lawnmower.. Castrol GTX 5w30 for more than 20 years here..

    I guess I shouldn't wait two weeks to get that crap out of my engine. That sucks, RP was expensive. Anybody know if K&N makes a good oil filter?

    Ehh it's another one of those multiple thread things.. But dyno results shown K&N's don't do much of anything.. Well except let dirt in your engine and get oil on your MAF.. I have the 85mm inlet fly by wire. I got tired of cleaning my MAF and Throttle body..

    My 2001 5.3 1500 has this ticking noise and it has 162,000 miles on it. I have been using 15-40 rotella as I thought thicker oil would help this problem in the summer.
    I think im going to try going back to what the factory recommends.

    Lots of folks, myself included, have tried or use a "soup".. After comming to LS1.com and learning more about oils I tried a few "mixes" too before settling in on 5w30.. I found a slight increase in mpg's, and slightly lower operational temps too. I will soon be moving to adding an amount of 2-cyl oil to my fill ups too..

    Yeah there is a lot of good info on this forum. I think I'll try 5w30 next week when its time to change the oil and filter.
