Sorry- your car is so new and you didn't say in your original post that you've already started modifying it. Maybe ask Diablo if you should use a different weight/type of oil? The HEMI "tick" seems to affect some cars more or less and some owners seem to be more aware of it than others. Some say synthetic oil cures it, some not. Some say it's valvetrain, some say it's the injectors. I'm glad I don't hear it in my R/T.Heavier oil will cause MDS to malfunction??
(I have a Diablo tuner, and I keep MDS turned off)
Apparently Dodge changes the oil filter model in mid-'15 production run for some reason. My '15 R/T has a build date of Oct '15 so it has the common MO-899 that's been used in previous years.It is your call but if you have any warranty issues and they determine wrong viscosity oil is in car you can be denied warranty coverage on related parts.These Hemi engines tick.Learn to like it.Mine quieted down significantly after 5000 miles.I use Pennzoil Ultra Platinum Synthetic 5w20.If your changing your own oil note that it may have a different oil filter than you expect based on the build date of the car.Ask me how I know.Had car jacked up and ready to proceed only to find out 2015 R/T used a different filter than my previous 2014 R/T.
MO-899 and MO-339 are interchangeable. It wouldn't make a difference. Why Dodge changed what filter it comes with I don't know. But you can use the 339 on yours, or vice versa.Apparently Dodge changes the oil filter model in mid-'15 production run for some reason.

that would suck to get fixn' to do an oil change and find out you need a different filter.
I say stick with 5W-20. I'm not a big risk taker when it comes to a brand new engine with warranty. But that's just me.Getting ready to do the first oil change on my new R/T... Wanting recommendations for the best weight to use here in Florida.
My motor is "ticky"... Will heavier oil help with the "Hell tick"?
I know I'm going to get incredible amounts of hell for this but Quantum Blue is the only way to go. It's the best oil for anything that needs lubrication.
Seems rather unscientific and anecdotal, but if that change is good enough for you that you're willing to pay the price to get that result then nobody can tell you otherwise.Believe it or not, I actually noticed a difference from behind the wheel. The car performs quite a bit better and the power seems to be a little more effortless. I won't go back to off the shelf oil.
Oh God, Aces IV. That stuff is the nectar of the gods for engines. I love it. Added throttle response, better mileage, more power, and a cleaner fuel system. Love love love it.Quantum Blue from BND Automotive. I have over 100,000 miles driven with it, in both my 300 SRT8 and R/T Shaker. Custom blended for your car, climate, and intended usage. Brian also offers his own premium hi-spec oil filters. Quiets Hemi tick. I run his products in my entire drivetrain and my mileage did improve a bit. Recommended.
If you want a smoother running engine, greatly reduced engine wear, better mileage, clean injectors, and more - check out his Aces IV. Expensive, but worth it. Google the article written a few years ago by a well-regarded industry expert who tested an engine the equivalent of 100,000 miles, and see what he had to say.
