What was that you like buying foreign products so you can help obama make are country in an even more of a recession you have to think about our kids not your own selfish needs. if everybody bought usa made products then we would have more jobs and the best oils in the world are formulated from scratch from racing applications to daily drivers it all depends on your application and what they put in it . If you cant take the heat trans am 1973 then stay outta the kitchen
    haha "cant take the heat stay outta the kitchen?" are you for real. I never stated what oil I use anyway so how can you assume that I buy foreign products? And just so you know I have full Amsoil fluids in my T/A......so much for foreign huh??? Selfish needs???? Listen to yourself......honestly you are 100% wrong about RP. It has crap UOA,volatility,and wear results.. Do the research its all there on paper. But in all honesty go ahead and keep putting RP in you engine sir, it will be good for you.

    I have never used RP but after I did some research I found it is not better than any other full synth oil. They just have a larger promotional budget.


    And off topic how.... 402 how many times are you going to use the word "are" where "our" should be used. No bashing you just drives me crazy to see that.

    Royal Purple is good stuff to use and while goat e over here changes/edits his posts every 5 minutes and puts it in colors just to explain hes a troll its hilarious, i will continue to use royal purple and i will not stand for people bashing a good product so anyways i never sayed its an oil that lasts over 3k miles if you drive your car like it was designed its a no brainer that it will be out of use sooner than your regular service interval. Some of the stuff you guys say makes me laugh keep up the good work

    Everyone needs to take a chill pill and keep this on topic and knock off the nonsense. The topic is royal purple. Either talk about royal purple or don't even bother posting.

    I for one have used Royal purple and other than not being able to tell wether my oil was dirty or just "purple" my car ran fine. Ive been kinda bad and had a few different kinds of synthetics in my car and nothing realy to report. I worked at an Oil Change for a year and a half and after a while i just ran either Castrol Syntec, Mobil 1, or Pennzoil Platinum(mostly cause i got it for free hehe, perks of the job) Ive even gone as far as testing mixing half and half of Mobil and Castrol together. My cars a bit of a ginny pig. I changed the oil at 3000 and not much to report. I drive it on the highway, dragstrip it, and even autocrossed once or twice. Oilwise its clean. Motor runs like a champ. As for Royal Purple, I didnt notice any of the claims of HP or miles per gallon (i think thats BS) but theres somthing that bugs me about an oil thats "purple" while all the other regular Synthetics Engine oils out there are a normal looking caramel looking color. Even AMSoil. To each his own but something just tells me (and not just this forum) to stay away from Royal Purple.

    ...wow where to begin on this one. First off, there are several good American Synthetics... so that's a non issue. Next, while I applaud you for sticking to a product you've used and swear by, I think you should do a little oil research. RP Purple does have a more hefty add pack than most especially in Phosphorus levels. This acts as a cleaning agent in the engine.

And if you put RP up against almost any synthetic it doesn't look good. Give Amsoil (a site sponsor) a shot and you'll notice a difference. Me? I prefer Pennzoil Platinum 10W-30, one of the few budget oils that competes with the top of the line stuff like Amsoil and such. Best advice though is to play around. Idk about you but I enjoy tinkering with things trying to find what works best for my application. And heck if you really want to go all out start mixing oils to find an ultimate combination.

    Ah yeah, that's the stuff right there. Good hard statistical data. I was gonna provide the same but I was running out the door to go to work.
    This is the test that I found that convinced me that Amsoil was going to be my choice.

    The normal carmel color is the dye additive. So is the purple.

    Thanks everybody for the advice, opinions, and input. Ive decided to stick with the RP. I also went with the K&N oil filter also a first time for my car, does the extra 6 bucks for it show a differnce, or am i just payin for the name.

    good input...But,...I would suggest against mixing oils. The problem is that when you start to mix oils, you are mixing add packs. With this, there is the potential for your chemistry to cancel itself out. This can end up making the add packs not as strong and not function as they were intended.

    I mix my own oil in my 9 second Gto and As long as you know what you are doing and have profesional training in that field there is no problem with mixing your own oils , when you know what is in the oil the chemistry ( basic chemistry 101) will provide all the reactions you will have with a controled study for example taking oil temp's at 300 degrees and taking the oil in 20 degree increments to see what the oil is doing , and how it reacts to other oils it is very cost efficient and you can do it on a electric burner is you dont have a bunsen burner .With the k and n filters they perform well but in a cost effective and well built i like the Purolators oil filter they have an anti drain back valves that are well built and all other parts wih them, check this out and you will see http://www.corolland.com/oil-filters.html

    Yup I started thinking about the lawsuit against RP and figured I'd post up the test data.. I can't fully remember what the lawsuit was about but it had to do with the false claims they made about adding power and so forth. Don't quote me but I believe our resident oil guru posted a thread about it..
