Penzoil Ultra 0W40 and Engine Noise

Is there anybody using Penzoil Ultra who has noticed any benefits related to our noisy engines?

I though I saw post recently where the OP said no more Hemi Tick!

I am considering it on my next O/C to see if it helps with what I think is valve train/lifter noise.

Thanks.

My 11 calls for 5-40 pennzoil ultra. I have very minimal ticking. Man I am so confused about all the different stories about what oil is recommended for the 392. My dealer said either Mobile1 or Pennzoil Ultra as long as it is 5-40, and that is what the book and cap says. Sheesh.

I don't have a 392, but I swear the Pennzoil Ultra 5w20 I had the dealer put in my R/T the one and only time actually caused my 5.7 to be noisier than when I ran Mobil 1 5w20 both before and after that change. I went back to Mobil 1 EP 5w20 after the Pennzoil Ultra and it sure seemed to be a lot quieter. Whether that would translate over to the 392 and 0w40 or 5w40 (Chrysler says 0w40 now for all 392s) I don't know, all I know is that I've had better luck with Mobil 1.

My 392 calls for 0-40

I pulled this straight from the Dodge Challenger service manual:
6.4L engines. For best performance and maximum protection under all types of operating conditions, the manufacturer only recommends full synthetic engine oils SAE 0W-40 that meet the American Petroleum Institute (API) categories of SM or SM/CF. meeting the requirements of Chrysler Group LLC Material Standard MS-10725.

Too much thought is put into oil in my opinon. As long as you meet the weight, the API requirments, and Chrysler's requirments it doesnt matter what brand you use.

My '12 392 says 0W-40 on the oil cap and 5W-40 in the owner's manual. Flip a coin. I use 5W-40 in the summer and 0W-40 in the winter.

Not sure how that's relevant, Chrysler calls for 0w40 in all 392 engines and has updated/sent updates to dealers and owners stating such. The 5w40 recommendation was only during the period of time between when Chrysler switched to Pennzoil as their factory-fill and the time Pennzoil actually had a 0w40 to offer. During the 5w40 period there was no 0w40 Pennzoil product available, which was rectified this year.

It's relevant because if I own a 2011 vehicle, I go by the info in a 2011 Service Manual. And you're incorrect re Chrysler sending 0W40 updates to owners of all 392 vehicles. 2011 owners did not receive notices.
