Wow, to find the filter had to take off that plastic inspection plate and then it was very simple! I didn't realize it was 7 quarts unit I put in 5, checked it, then checked the manual for capacities. I'm only gonna use Mobile 1 synthetic 5W20. Now for the next 3000 miles, hehe : ).

Mobile 1 Synthetic should be good for 15,000 miles, shouldn't it??? I've never used it but that is what they use in the BMW's that get their oil changed every 15,000 miles...

Thats what they claim, I run M1 in everything I own including my race cars (2 - 2002 BMW's) but I never go over 5K on the street cars and the race cars get changed after every race weekend. For me, oil is cheap compared to what it may and may not protect after it has a lot of miles on it.

My family has so many vehicles, we qualify as an amsoil dealer.

So I'll have the oil changed this week with amsoil 5w-20 synthetic :D

this is my first post, have a silver steel with magnaflow exhaust and knn cai. just a bit of advice for the first time oil change, if synthetic is used in the charger it will eventually disable the cylinder deactivation. dynasaur oil 5 20 is only to be used in this vehicle. my uncle is 35 year dodge mechanic in chicago land area. please check into it. thanks guys

I just read the manual and it said that it's fine to use synthetic oil.

pg. 283
"Synthetic Engine Oils
You may use synthetic engine oils provided that the recommended oil quality requirements are met and the recommended maintainance intervals for oil and filter changes are followed."

The only part that affects the MDS is the 5w-20 weight. If you use a different weight, then the MDS won't work right.

"Vehicles equipped with 5.7L engines must use SAE 5w-20 oil. Failure to do so may result in improper operation of the Multiple Displacement System (MDS)."
