    I'm getting ready for my first oil change. I bought 3 gal of Royal Purple and a mopar filter. It was a tough call, I was debating between Royal Purple, Amsoil, and Rotella, but since I've been using RP in my gas vehicle for ever I just stuck with it.
    I'm doing the first oil change at 7500 miles. I'm going to pick up a Fumoto valve, so the second oil change wont be as messy as the first, or this one that I can add a nipple to:

    What do you guys think of a oil bypass kit? Which one are people using?

    Royal Purple and Amsoil are probably overkill and a waste of money(unless you get it as cheap) compared to Rotella T6
