Default Good change? Rotella 5w40

I have read some people stating that ROTELLA oil is a great product. I have been a firm user of Mobil 1 synthetic, 5w30 for the past 2 years and have not had any issues at all. Now, I switched to Rotella 5w40 since my car will only be driven in NICE and WARM weather, so I am really hoping the switch was worth it...especially with how cheap this oil is compared to Mobil 1.

Any useful feedback from those who have switched to this oil?

Very nice, thanks Dennis. Looks like I made a decent choice. I do have ONE cat in my system, but it's a hi-flow in the mid-pipe that I honestly don't think will be harmed by this. The cat-less mid-pipe is sitting in my garage right now, debating installation though.

Thanks again.
