SRT8's come with synthetic, and it is recommended to keep it that way!

Another plus for synthetic is 6000 miles before oil change.

And in the year 2251, when Crush finally reaches the magical 6,000-mile mark, Paladin XVII will dutifully put in synthetic oil.

In the 5.7L, you absolutely need it for the MDS to work correctly.

last monday when I was getting the oil changed at the dealership the service tech goes taks to another tech and goes

"do the srt8s take sythetic or regular?"

right in front of me

and I but in "are you serious man? SYNTHETIC ONLY"

then i asked them if i get a mopar supercharger can they install it and tune it correctly to the car, like do they have any guys on staff with experience.
I got the most BS'd answer i ever heard. that ended in, me saying "well you guys don't have a dyno so how would you plan on tuning it??"
