Default What synthetic oil do you use?

I'm looking to change my oil tomorrow and want to change to a synthetic oil. Any suggestions?

Check out this thread that was just started on this subject. http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=163173

Personally I use Amsoil 0W20 signature series with a UAP Napa gold filter.

I don't get the 0-20. The manual is very specific that only 5-20 should be used.

The HEMI gets 5W20 Pennzoil Platinum or Ultra. Both exceed Chrysler's specs. Wix filters. The MDS on the 5.7 needs 5W20 to function as designed.
