I heard a guy swearing how the Red Line 5W20 quiets the Hemi Tick, not the worn cam lobe & lifter rollers.

I'm good on mine but am surprised I've never heard mention of the brand and weight on the forums. Damn pricey though.

Red Line 5W20

Unless some one is doing some oil testing with oils I never believe anyone. And I have yet to see any oil actually cure anything far as hemi's, ticking, and lifter/cams go.

You know what's about to happen, right? lol
Some one is going to tell us why they say that have zero affiliation with a company, yet that company holds the EPA required registration on a line of products, and also has had a lifter failure on a car that strictly ran that elixir?


Actually, Hadn't seen him in while. I bet $20 if he responded he tell us about the medical wonders they are doing, the 20K more customers added, and how they made the oil for the rover on mars but have no proof of any it.

I have used Mobil 1 for awhile and I’m convinced that it is great oil. I think amsoil may be better, but I’ve never used any.

I ran RL 1 time in the coyote when it had a tick and like most fresh oils it quieted it for a while. I went back to the OEM 5-20. Still have the occasional tick but that's the nature of some cars across a few makers.

Both my daily drivers are boosted, beat on, and thrive on Mobil1.

The Red line does meet Chrysler MS-6395 which covers the 5.7 Hemi, so it should be fine.

But $11 a quart is it worth it??

I use the Penzoil Ultra Platinum Full synthetic 5W20 $25 for 5 quart jug, or $5 per quart https://www.amazon.com/Pennzoil-Platinum-Synthetic-5-Quart-Single-Pack/dp/B01MA4UAP5?th=1
For some reason the 3 quart box costs more now?? so just order 2 singles (I get 3 at a time since I use the same oil in my Marauder, 13 quarts at a time, plus 2 to burn off in the Marauder, the Charger NEVER takes oil!!

I've been using Mobil1 for a long time and it suits me. I don't believe any oil out there quiets the engine. Use what you like. Wasn't there a well-known test done a few years back that basically said as long as you're doing oil changes at the recommended intervals for your vehicle and using what the vehicle calls for that pretty much any brand of oil will be perfectly fine?

I doubt that there could be any such generalization as synthetic is definitely vastly superior to conventional oil. I’ll bet synthetic oil actually staves off many problems from occurring.

I'm not debating conventional vs synthetic. I'm saying that as long as you use an oil that meets your cars requirements, pretty much any brand will do as long as you are changing it at the proper intervals.

I believe this is it.

I used super tech 5w-20 synthetic. Works just fine
Have you performed any Blackstone analysis using ST synthetic oil? Everything I read about this Warren Oil product sounds good. The low price probably scares a lot of potential buyers away.

Yeah thanks for the link, but what I'm saying is that some of these engine problems that people are experiencing with the hemis, like destroying camshaft lobes, likely could be avoided altogether if synthetic was used to begin with. And that falls out of just the standard Manufacturer's specifications.

I have on my mobil 1 after 12-15k miles on a repeated basis. That's why synthetic is so superior to conventional. It allows longer change intervals while maintaining lubricity.

That's not true at all. There's no proof anywhere of that. There's several of here who have all used the required oil and still had issues. The 5.7 calls for conventional, the 6.4 fill synthetic. Check here and the RAM forums and you'll fall asleep reading the discussions on this. It's a design problem, not a type of oil problem.
