Amsoil dealers and questions about Amsoil.

First off who sells Asmoil, does anyone or vendor on here?

My next question is it good as I've read in other places, say compared to Rotella or other brands?
Are ther filters good stuff too?
Cause reason I ask is am about due for any oil change and am considering using this stuff.

Also what about Archoil additive, is it worth using in the 7.3?

Amsoil leads the pack when it comes to synthetic oils and filters, there are many who have released similar products recently but amsoil was the first.

And is the Archoil additive worht running in a 7.3? I know 6.0 guys like the stuff, just curious if 7.3s respond well to Archoil.

Never heard of it, but typically the only thing that needs additive is the fuel in a 7.3

Acquired knowledge.

6.0 injectors use a rotating spool valve and much finer tolerances, which often results in stiction. 7.3's do use tight clearances, but not quite as tight.
