I switched to Syntec 5w20 in my TL. I had been using Motorcraft 5w20 SynBlend, which is a very very good oil. As soon as I turned the key, the valvetrain was significantly quieter. I won't get MPG numbers until next week. I'm back at a client in downtown Houston and have been taking the bus. Thus far, I like it. It may be an underrated oil. I know some here don't like Syntec because of Castrol's marketing blunders of the past and present. It has no impact on how well the oil runs and I have to say, I'm truly impressed.

OMG... That annoys me so much. My friends said the same thing when I told them I used Syntec over their coveted M1. Besides, I didn't buy Edge. They don't make it in 5w20.

I am running Syntec 5w-20 in my 5.7 HEMI - and it builds RPMs really smooth and quiet. I believe Syntec may be the thickest of the 5w-20 synthetics.

Really? I might have to search the VOA section. I haven't done that in a while. Heck, this is the most active I have been on here in years.
