Archoil Treatment

Okay, so I'm changing my oil in a few days, and I want to try some of the Archoil stuff. I plan on doing a full Archoil treatment, with Archoil 2300 in the next oil change, to clean everything out, and then Archoil 9100 and Archoil Fuel Treatment the next oil change.

What do you guys think? I was thinking of just running cheap Rotella 15W-40 with the 2300, since I wouldn't keep it in their for long (3,000 miles). Should I run synthetic with the 2300 as well? I will be running Rotella T6 synthetic with the 9100 in the following oil change.

One difference... Mine is a 6.4L.

I tried the 10W-30 in my 6.0L... Wasn't impressed. It's not a full synthetic, either. It's blended. 5W-40 synthetic always ran much better.

Yes, but I'm wanting to clean everything out before putting in the T6 and 9100.

The screen? You realize I'm talking about the 6.4L, right?

But there is really no way to tell how dirty everything is. It's got 104k on it.
