Default Best oil for 5.7 Hemi

hello all,

Purchased a 09 1500 Quad cab in May, now time for oil change.

Want to go synthetic, maybe Shell rotella or mobil 1.

any thoughts?

i actually have a 4.7 but i use it my truck and it works great for me but my buddy chuck had a 2004 dodge ram with the 5.7 and he swore byt the RP every oil change we did was RP and it seemed to be amazing , he was also running port and polished heads,4:56 gears,banks ehaust, and a sts turbo...so i would say its a good bet...pricey but do it

Welcome to the Z for Rams from Baltimore . Enjoy the Site . Any questions , ask away . I recommend Amsoil synthetic . Thats all I run in all my cars , motor and transmissions . One question , how many miles do you have on it ? I wouldn't recommend it until you have a good 10,000 miles on it . Good and broken in . www.amsoil.com

Hi Tom,

I have 3200 miles on it. i have read before that the break-in does not matter, you can run the synthetic right from start. why do you need 10k miles before switching to synthetic? To make sure the rings are seated?
