^^ i cant comment on Royal Purple because they dont release much data on the oils.
My personal blend: 3qt Toyota 0w-20 with 1.5qt Mobil 1 0w-40. Designed for general abuse, drag racing, ect.
More performance (autocross and such): 2qt Toyota 0w-20 with 2.5qt Mobil 1 0w-40.
This oil is designed to give you the best starting ability possible while still ranging from a medium thickness 0w-30, to a thick 0w-30. The 0w is not just for cold weather performance, it also helps the oil resist thinning out when overheated from racing. The Mobil 1 0w-40 has higher than average zinc/phosphorus. Both oils are made by ExxonMobil. For even MORE fun for those who want the best possible oil. Try Mazda w/ Moly 0w-20 OR Eneos Sustina 0w-20, mixed with Redline 0w-40.
5,000 or 6 months (conventional) -- For severe usage: 2500-3300
7,500 or 9 months (synthetic) -- For more severe use: 3800-5000
Ill be updating this with a little more detail within the next few days.
Post any questions, ill be happy to answer them. Ill also give recommendations on oil, based on the expected usage of the vehicle and your price range.
