I dumped my Castrol Edge HM oil at 2500 miles to try out the Rotella Multi Vehicle oil.

My thoughts so far is my 4.6 V-8 sounds quieter than it did. It also feels smoother running to me.

Good to hear and I was wondering what you thought if it since mentioning it the other day. I'll be dumping the VWB in the Matrix very soon and will be using either PUP 5w20 or T6 5w30. Can't wait to get either one in there. 5k on current oci.

What was wrong with the old oil? Was it ready to be dumped, or did your oil-change itch simply need to be scratched? Coffee2

Not saying butt dyno results are not valid, but a UOA would be alright.
My butt dyno does tell me my Escort's engine is smoother and quieter though since i switched to 15W-40 HDEO.
