I still have some from 2010 in my garage., lmao? Store in mild environment if you can,. but don't worry about that one.

Yes. Don't recall what they told us @ Mobil - a long time, I guess. The whole point of synthetic oil is stability, right? Saturated hydrocarbons = minimal oxygen bonding sites = stability.

i am officially joining the redline rp crew lol. Hopefully I don’t have any elitefab / United parcel stuffers issues.
Looking forward to seeing if it quiets this tapping cause it’s driving me nuts.

Still planning on changing internals come 80° weather.

I've found Amazon Red Line Store, Summit Racing, and Rock Auto all reliable shippers (though Rock Auto doesn't handle Red Line Oil), FWIW.

I didn't use Red Line either until I read through the member data on this site, and knowing tribology fairly well from my career, it's definitely the right move for the Hemi drama queen engine. Some people lose sight of this - they think this is a Red Line fan boy club - it is NOT that - it is a data-based solution to HEMI ENGINE design flaw only.

My perception certainly evolved from skeptic / fanboy to data driven solution after talking to several of you and doing a ton of reading… synthetic oil thread here’s looking at you

i have some HPL 30 weight engine cleaner coming. Will be doing a couple flushes with that over the next 4k miles. Will report back after.
Doing the ags delete and trans heater bypass this week.
royal purple filters came in.
Just reporting back. The cleaner made no noticeable difference to my tapping, nor has the switch to redline 5w30 and Royal purple filter… yet… not up to 500 miles yet so I didn’t expect anything.

Does anyone have any recommended places to buy oem Mopar parts from?

I’ve looked into moparfactoryparts.com,
Moparpartswholesaledirect.com

Any good experiences on eBay?
eBay lifters
So minus head bolts, thermostat and ac refrigerant, but including hellcat oil pump and water pump moparfactoryparts.com (was cheaper than wholesale direct) comes to $1700 exactly after tax and shipping to AZ

Being in Scottsdale,there should be some smaller shops set-up to evacute your 1234yf and store it for you,there by saving you a bunch of money.The sshit is gold plated ;).Or if you're artistic you can do a cam swap with-out opening up the A/C,it's just a bit more of a pain to do with the condensor still in the way,but is definitely do-able

This is what I wanted to hear. If given the choice, I never want to crack open the AC system.... removed.
