I just recently changed the motor oil in my SC and normally i run Mobil 1 or Castrol Syntec. I decided to try Royal Purple this time as ive heard some pretty good reviews about it even though its fricken 7.50 a qt.
Well let me tell my car has NEVER EVER ran this smooth before. Everything just seems like it runs better and even a little peppier. I normally change my oil every 3k miles so im pretty sure my car feeling this way wasn't because i hadn't changed it in a while or anything of that sort.
I highly reccomend this Royal Purple To you clublexus'ers out there and really do think that this oil is superior to Mobil 1.
just an fyi i bought the 20w50 weight.
and i have a 92 sc300 and stock 1jzgte.

I'll add something to this. I have a lot of racers at my track in Mexico use this oil and they always use it in a heavier grade than they required and for some odd reason, when they use a the grade recommended they don't nearly get the same performance that comes from say moving up to a W40 or W50. I don't know if their grades run light for the number or what, similar to a Castrol 0W30 being like a heavy 30 that works like a 40.
I use OEM Toyota oil ..from the sounds of it this isint what everyone else goes for. Any reason for this? What else should I try?
...I'm due for an oil change as soon as I get a chance to do it, so any advice is great. Btw 1UZ 124,xxx miles.
wow..thats really funny..cuz my store just started carrying royal purple, and usually i use castrol syntec, and i just purchased some 5w30 royal purple yesterday along with my k&n oil filter. i should be due for an oil change soon. i cant wait to see and feel the performance! but i think this is also in the wrong forum. probably better in the performance section..fyi
where do you get this stuff at, any auto parts store? My oil is over 5k just been putting an oil change off because I wanted to change it myself. I think I'll use Mobil 1 (5w30, I guess?) the first time since I've seen it mentioned a lot in the SC circle and maybe upgrade it later to this Royal Purple or Amsoil if I can find it.
