Tried T5

I have 65,000 miles now so I'd thought I'd try the T5 everyone's talking about. Also changed fuel filters.
I have to tell ya she's quieter, noticeably quieter. So I took it for a little drive down the street and noticed a little better throttle response. I found a Dmax at a red light and so I just had to show him whats up and left him in his own smoke.

I never had very hard start issues but, I have noticed it starts with less effort. I think I found my new oil. I don't tow heavy, just some atv's and a boat. So I think I'll be fine.

yet another happy 6.0 with T5. I love this oil and for the price its worth it. Sure full synthetic is probably a little better but it doesnt justify double the price in my opinion when the results are very similar; maybe i say this because i'd prefer to put my money elsewhere.

Just bought the T5 oil today just waiting on my oil and fuel filters to come in the mail. Got my Rev-X in Saturday now if only the filters would have come in to.

thinking about finally switching to t5 or all out synthetic too. i come from the world of drag racing and i always used royal purple in my mustang and loved it, i use it in my daily driver('06 jetta) too cause i love the stuff. but for the price of t5 or full syn over royal purple or amsoil its just a good deal considering we use 15 qts but i haven't made my mind up yet.

Man, I hear you... I'm the same way. I ran RP in my cobra for years and everything else. But for the cost factor, you can't beat T5!

Glad we have someone else with it. I'm running mine to 8k right now. On these chilly mornings (50-60ºF) She will start right up but she has just a hint of a miss. And ofcourse I have to let her warm up before I give her too much but she will still drive right off as soon as I start her up. It was HORRIBLE for me before.

But I'm at 7500, actually about 7800 miles on it now So I will probably be changing it this weekend.
