He never would say a name brand just conventional oil. 5k seems steep to me for conventional oil. What do you guys think?
5K miles was steep for an OCI in 19aught6. Plus it's at least a 7 quart sump with a port injected pushrod V8. The 5.7HEMI is a stout engine and I'll wait for further red line recommendations even with no formal approvals and recommendations.

First ignorant about Pennzoil and can't read an owners manual. Ok you may need more assistance than we can provide as members of this forum.

best advice is use an oil that meets chrys spec ms6395. owners manual is pretty clear and there are plenty of choices. may or may not ever matter but why take the chance.
