If you're looking for a modern synthetic oil for your stock or modified Mustang, the Royal Purple 5W-20 here might just be the most popular option currently on the site with well over 100 five star rated reviews. Now that 5W-20 weight will make it compatible with most newer Mustangs, including the recommended factory weight in the S550 cars and can be had for right around 8 bucks a quart. Now since oil changes are basically wrenching 101, the site is going to call this a one out of three wrenches on the old difficulty meter. About an hour or so to get everything knocked out. So this will be a relatively short one, guys, because it's oil and let's face it there's really not a ton to talk about outside of those manufacturer claims. So what do you say we break those down first? Now Royal Purple does state that their API licensed high-performance synthetic here is going to meet or exceed the standard set by dexos1 and ILSAC GF-5. Now the dexos was was originally a GM thing but it did usher in a new set of standards for high-quality modern synthetics which did include or mandate the use of high-quality ingredients, better anti-oxidant technology and with a higher mileage interval and lower viscosity when compared to other non-dexos oils on the market. Now that ILSAC rating, on the other hand, is gonna hold a little bit more weight in my opinion as it was started by a number of big manufacturers including Ford, GM, Chrysler and more to better define the standardization of lubricating parameters. Now the Royal Purple is going to meet and exceed the ILSAC GF-5 standard when it comes to providing high-temperature protection for both pistons and turbos, increase sludge protection or control, better fuel economy, better seal compatibility, and last but not least enhance protection against higher ethanol content fuels like E85. But aside from the enhanced wear protection we just talked about, Royal Purple is also going to claim increased fuel economy when running this oil due to the lower coefficient of friction that basically allows their slightly heavier 5W-30 to meet the fuel economy requirements of a 5W-20. So not gonna be night and day but it's something again they do claim. Royal Purple also features a unique patented ZDDP additive that will still offer the protection you've come to expect out of that traditional zinc and phosphorus mix but without some of the chemicals that can accelerate the wear and tear on your emissions components like your catalytic converters. But I do want to point out that the basic API oil that we have here is going to be essentially the entry level lubricant for Royal Purple as a brand or as a company. The next step up will be your HPS which is the high-performance street oil with that [inaudible 00:02:48] technology baked in entire levels of that ZDDP additive we just talked about. But if you really want the utmost in protection from Royal Purple, you should definitely check out their XPR race oil here on the site. It's gonna cost you more than double the price of the standard stuff we're talking about here but is claimed to be the best oil of choice for hardcore competition used. Now your oil change intervals with the standard Royal Purple here are gonna lie between that 5,000 to 10,000-mile mark and that's gonna be the case with a lot of today's modern synthetics as they really don't break down nearly as fast as those older conventional oils. As far as specific weight is concerned, well that's gonna be up to you guys because it will differ from engine to engine and application to application. But when in doubt, guys, it's really never a bad idea to follow what's recommended in your owner's manual. Now as far as your installation I guess is concerned in this case well, listen guys, oil changes are one of those standard automotive chores that most everybody should be familiar with. So you should know the deal, make sure you grab enough for your application along with a fresh filter and most importantly, make sure you dispose of that old oil properly. But in closing, if you want to go with one of the most popular oils on the site for your stock or modified Mustang, be sure to check out the Royal Purple 5W-20 right here at americanmuscle.com.

I’ve been using royal purple oil 5w20 for awhile now, when I started I used Royal Purple HPS 5w20 and could really feel a difference in my vehicle performance. I have to say that the HPS version is kinda hard to find, but so far the high performance version has been doing the job. Would highly recommend this product.Helpful (2)

I love the Royal Purple. I am about to order another. It is time for my oil change.m :-) It is really great!Helpful (1)
How many miles can i go between oil changes with Royal purple oil? I have heard that you can run up to 7000 miles between oil changes with Royal Purple. Is this true? If not what is recommended? Also, right now i am running 5w-20 Castrol GTX High Mileage in my '03 GT with 123K miles, should i move up to another weight and viscosity considering this is high mileage?
Its possible with some of the newer oil designs to run 5k miles between oil changes. However, with any car that has a few miles on it staying closer to the 3k miles range will only benefit you and your motor, especially if you drive it aggressively. Always change your filter when changing your oil.
hi how many quarts is required for a 06 gt to carry out a oil change also will i need addactive or just a straight oil change thanks
my mustang v6 2006 with 34k I installed the procharger p1sc and it is my first oil change I wanted to know what kind of synthetic oil I would recommend to take care of the engine of my pony
The 2006 Mustang will use 5 quarts of 5W-30 Oil as directed by Ford via the Owners Manual.
Can I start using this in my 2006 gt if the motor (as far as I know) has never used synthetic before?
Yes, you can go to the full synthetic oil, however, once you start using the full synthetic it would be recommended to stick with that type of oil for future changes.
Is this the oil I will need on a 2016 Mustang GT? Or should I go 5w30 or the XPR Race 5w20? Not sure of the differences.
The 5w20 would be ideal to run as this is the standard recommendation from Ford.
The Royal Purple 5w20 Motor Oil can be used on your 2003 GT.
Yes, Royal Purple 5w20 is the recommend oil to go with in your Stang!
It would be recommended to stick with the same brand synthetic oil when changing your oil. However, as long as the oil is still synthetic you should not have a problem with doing this.
The Royal Purple is a high-end oil and we would absolutely recommend it if you want to go to a full synthetic oil.
The main difference between the Royal Purple 5w20 Motor Oil and the HPS line from royal purple will be the additives in the oil. The HPS line from Royal purple will contain higher concentrates of Zinc and Phosphorous for their anti wear properties.
It would not be too late to change the oil wait, and making the change sooner than later is better than not changing it at all. The condition of our vehicle change over time, and keeping up with these changes can prolong the life of your motor. Your 2006 has relatively low miles, and you may be fine with the oil weight you currently have, however, you could increase the oil weight to reduce cylinder scouring, or perhaps move a little thinner in order to allow the oil pump to circulate the oil a slightly quicker to avoid the length of that dry start. You may find the use of a thinner oil, with an additive to help with engine wear to be suitable, however it would depend on the condition of your motor.
It is recommended to stay with the type of oil that Ford says to us. Ford sticks with 5w20 to create less internal friction. Royal Purple 5w20 Motor Oil will work amazingly on your 2004 V6 Mustang. It will bring down your engine temperature a great amount. Though, if you did go with Royal Purple 5w30 Motor Oil, item # 45011, (http://www.americanmuscle.com/royal-purple-5w30.html) it would not do harm to the engine. Because of how well Royal Purple lubricates the engine at all temperatures, you are able to go longer without an oil change compared to other brands. Though, it is recommended to still do oil changes close to 3,000 miles just to ensure proper function of the engine.
when I got my 12 GT Coupe Premium, I took the free oil change they offered. Next change was to Royal Purple and it's been that way ever since.
It shouldn't be a problem, as long as it's the correct viscosity for your car.
If your car has the stock oil pan, use what the manual says. Too much oil is worse than a half quart low.
