Well, did an early change today, figured I could justify it under wanting to flush more break-in material out, but really just wanted to change the oil, lol. OLM was at 43%, so had about 4,000Km left on the oil, at the rate it was going.

I did grab a sample of the Ravenol, so I'll be getting a few OAI kits from the AMSOIL website and sending it off. Will be interesting to see what fuel % is at.

What's missing on this filter?

Hint, it's the same thing that's missing on this drain plug:

If you guessed the gasket, you'd be right!

Was stuck to the oil cooler. The one for the drain plug was in the oil drain pan.

Interestingly, this oil has a touch of a blueish hue to it:

Disappears in the stream, but you can see it in the funnel and where it leaves the bottle. I assume might be an additive?

Oil pressure is the same as with the Ravenol:

This was the last of my OG FRAM Ultra filters, if Fleetguard used silicone ADBV's (hint @NashNative) I'd run one of those, as the Stratapore media is excellent, however, without that option, I'll be ordering some EaO's from AMSOIL.

The 0W-20 looked very similar in color but was thinner. That must be the smoothest 0W-40 ever! Enjoy!

I wish I had that Jeep SRT. It's awesome! 🤤

And now it's a classic because they no longer make it.

Yes, there was an order cut-off for custom builds when I ordered this one. I've been pretty happy with it for the most part. I'll be doing a 20,000km thread on it where I detail my experience with it.

Nice! i've been wondering if i should run the super car in my ram. I have the passenger car plus 0w-40 in now. Nice jeep! I bet it will fly! I wish the 470hp 6.4 was in the trucks! Mine is 410hp.

The GC got a 5HP bump in 2017 I think? So it's 475HP, my '16 was 470. Of course the cars got a much bigger bump, 485 I think?

I'd ask Dave what he thinks, I've always gone with a Euro 0w-40 because of the heftier additive package, so that was what drove my decision with this lube.

I noticed the same blue-ish tint you describe, but in STP oils from AutoZone. And some HDEO oil, but can't remember what brand it was. Always wondered what additive is responsible for that chameleon-like blue-ish tint that is only visible at certain angles.

I came across this old post from @MolaKule: https://bobistheoilguy.com/forums/threads/blue-dye-in-oil.185579/post-2791932

There are all colors of oil soluble dyes of the rainbow for varous applications. Many mfg dye their oils a different color to differentiate the product. Dyes offer no performance or protection enhancments.

I wouldn't read too much into it. It's probably another feature to quickly identify that it's a genuine product.

It could be a little bit of dye or the Moly compound. I honestly don't know. It's probably a good question for @High Performance Lubricants.

I would like to know as well.

Last product I saw that poured a blue hue was Restore! Engine compression additive, that stuff is blue. HPL differential fluid is also blue for medium viscosity (like Dex3,) green for light (like Dex6) I believe. @High Performance Lubricants ?
