The ROYAL TREATMENT

Royal purple tranny and engine switchover today. What a difference this has made. Shifts a whole lot cleaner and runs smoother too. Loss of most of the noise under the hood. I was running Mobil 5w30 went up to 10w30 Royal Purple. This car might not be too bad afterall. Cost me 90 bucks.

Any others had similiar results? Sounds a little more throaty too.

I read that it was inadvisable to change the transmission fluid to RP, but I have it in my motor and it is surely the best.

Why is "inadvisable" to run a full synthetic?

There was a post by someone at GetRag on focal jet that said it was crucial you should run only the fluid that comes with it, I don't remmber the brand.

Could he have been endorsing his own product or was he a trust worthy guy. I don't mind tossing 63.00 dollars out the window if it means my vehicle is going benifit from it.
