I have DexIII. Works great. If you wanna do synthetic fine, but you're still gonna need to flush it when it's burnt up.
Also, that's about 21qts for a proper flush. Ask me and I'll tell.
I also added an external filter in the cooler line. Just like the Dieselsite one but DIY using the same stuff they did.

Sigs can be turned off (and given how slooooow the .org can be sometimes, it helps to turn 'em off). Brand seems to be a regional thing. AmsOil is headquartered in Superior, WI, and seems to be the favorite in the northeast and midwest. Schaeffer's seems to be more popular down south. Oil ain't cheap to ship, which probably explains the regionality. Not sure about Royal Purple. There's always Mobil 1 ATF, pretty-much the same price nationwide.
