Amsoil Synthetic, Good/Bad?

Ok, lets hear the good stories/bad stories and everything else about Amsoil synthetic 15w-40 oil and synthetic tranny fluid.

I'm looking at purchasing enough for 2 oil changes of 15w-40 synthetic with filters and I also want to change out my tranny fluid and filter with their synthetic fluid.

Let me hear your horror stories/good tales about this company.

My truck has 206k miles on it with what I believe is the original tranny.

i run amsoil synthetic 15w 40, very pleased with it. I am actually looking into becoming a amsoil dealer. I don't really have much to compare it to my truck has seen synthetic as long as i have owned it. I know if u are not currently running synthetic oil then amsoil makes a kit to flush out ur motor before u use their oil. I have heard only good things about amsoil. hope this helps

The only bad thing I would say about Amsoil it's not as easy to get as RP.
