Just about everyone I know runs Rotella T6...

*edit. I got 219,000 miles out of my 1st engine... 190,000 of that was mobil 1. Engine did not blow, just needed a valve job, but I got a good deal on a full drivetrain so I swapped. Old motor was built into a race engine.

T6 is superior. Run that and purolator pure 1 filters... you will have no problems regardless of season. Bad tunes kill motors far more than the type of oil.. just dont let it go dry.

Getting ready to cross the 250k mark.. photos coming.
