Pennzoil Ultra vs. Mobil 1: MY OPINION!!!

In another thread on Pennzoil Ultra and engine noise, I posted that I had a ticking from our 392 engine. I changed the oil in it yesterday and decided to use the last of the Mobil 1 0W40 I had leftover for my '08. From the initial start up after the change, I noticed that the ticking was greatly reduced if not gone. However, I didn't want to jump to a conclusion without more "data", in this case, more miles. Today, with the sunny, 55F weather here, my wife and I went for a ride; in fact, a 97 mile drive. During this drive I purposely accelerated heavy and normal, all the while listening for the tick. I have to say, if there was any tick, it was so slight that a normal conversation or regular volume music easily drowned it out. Now, I am not suggesting that this tick is caused by the Pennzoil Ultra, but I would say that the Mobil 1 is masking the tick better.

I wanted to share my experience with our engine tick and using Mobil 1 vs. Pennzoil Ultra. As most things in life, each engine is different and therefore your results could vary. ALSO, there are many oils that others use here, and those could produce similar, if not better results

Thanks!

Haven't done my first oil change yet. Any idea what the 12 392s came out of the factory with?
I think with penzoil, it's more of a marketing and/or endorsement deal.
Mobil 1 has a reputation and been around forever.
Has Anybody used the purple one ?
I was planning to use Mobil 1 at 6000k for my first OC.
Great thread btw

I've had similar luck with oil as well. I got 3 years of free oil changes from the dealer and they use Pennzoil. I changed it at 1000 miles myself and used Mobil 1 and the tick was noticeably quieter.

Originally, the 392s had Mobil 1 0w-40 from the factory. Around 2011-2012 they switched to Pennzoil Ultra 5w-40. In 2012.5+, they fill with the new Pennzoil 0w-40.

Royal Purple runs thicker than the stock oils at operating temperature.

Here's a table for reference.

I used Pennzoil in my 71 Challenger and I didn't like it. It used to cake up in the corners of the valve covers (340ci). I then moved to a Quaker State which made the engine start and run noticeably better and quieter. In my 6.1 I run Royal Purple, but it gets parked in the winter, so no real problem with start up.
