Re: 6.0 oil ???

5w40 T6 seems to be everyone's choice I like AR9100 for the additive over rev x. It less expensive and it does work. It's made by archoil. The T6 is syntetic and will mix with any remaining oil in your crankcase. The rough idle, cold start, misfire is stiction in your injectors it's a problem every 6.0 will face at some time. The ar9100 will help if not solve your problems if the injectors are not too far gone.

Re: 6.0 oil ???

Btw if your injectors are in need of repair/ rebuild Warren has new technology that will eliminate stiction issues. A set of upgraded 175/75 injectors will run you $1650.00 they will add about 75rwhp

Re: 6.0 oil ???

T6 is better for used injectors. The Modified Solenoids that Warren sells are able to be ran with 15-40 though.

Re: 6.0 oil ???

I had been using Rotella T6, and tried Mobile 1 TDT on my last change. The Mobile 1 seems no different except with extremely cold starts. The T6 seemed better when starting in the 0 or slightly above cold weather. Butt dyno makes it seem like the T6 thickens up less in the extreme cold than TDT. I'll be going back to T6 next time around.

Re: 6.0 oil ???

Mine still starts right up at 30 degrees and I know it does not have the best fuel injectors. It only seems to struggle more when it gets around 0. Otherwise I couldn't tell any difference so far. I'm sure you'll be all good.

It's such a minor thing but I also like the T6 jug design better than TDT, it pours easier / runs down the container less. I have to pour slow with the van waiting on the oil to run down the fill tube, so this makes a difference for me. haha
