I think you're going to find more of a personal opinion thing in response to your question about Royal Purple Pedro.

Royal Purple has advertising on some Top Fuel and Funny Cars in drag racing, so I imagine it's not any worse or better than any other synthetic oil on the market today.

I was planning on using RP on my next oil change but I am still a bit undecided too. One member here said that his tech said his oil (RP) was "thin". I dont know about the viscousness of it but from everything else I have heard about it, I think I may try it out.

I was watching a hot rod show on the tube and they dyno'd 10 or 15 xtra HP out of a 500HP motor. They could not say enough about it. Apparently it has excellent lubricating qualities and a very high tolerence for viscosity and thermal breakdown. I knew of a sprint car garage that swore by it also. Well in any case, I think I will try it out here in a couple of weeks when I change my oil out. They also have tranny fluid and gear oil too.

It was suggested to me by the techs that work on my car to switch. I have it in my ride!

Mobil 1 is an excellent choice very good oil. You should never have trouble with it.
