Redline has priced themselves out of the preventative strategy market, there are many more reasons not to use it in a non hemi tick hemi then there is reasons to use it. Say that ten times fast. Keep in mind, once a hemi has hemi tick of any kind (lifter related), it doesnt matter what they want to charge for it, you would be a fool not to run it or another high performance oil such as HPL. That oil is simply keeping 100's pf hemi's out of the cam shop period. It not only kills hemi tick like nothing else, but those hemi's have yet to have any number of cam fails, one known case where we don't even know the particulars. A decade of trucks with hemi tick erased with an oil chnage and all of them not needing cams. Think about that for a minute, pick 100 rams that have hemi lifter tick, how many of that random group do you think would need a cam within the next decade? Yeah, zero? 1? No way? Yeah way. The results are in, it is no longer theory, redline 5w30 is a legitimate fix for hemi tick, even better then replacing the cam and lifters. That is exactly right, more hemi's tick after a cam/lifter replacement putting them at risk of fail then those trucks quieted by redline. Yeah, that oil costs double that of other oils, but a wise person once said you get what you pay for.
Like I said in sentence one, most rams this shouldnt be your strategy unless you have money like that, which I don't anymore, so if my own truck didnt tick I would not use it. So what to do then? Think upping the viscosity and/or using lubegard biotech. If that truck is out of warranty 5w30/0w40 with or without LG is the way to go. Guys running 5w20 in high mileage hemi's and nothing else are toying with a known issue, maybe it will work maybe not, but there is zero downside for using a 5w30/0w30 and all of the upside.
