My Honda spec's 0-20 oil and, to me, the 0 is only to reduce internal engine drag and decrease mileage. I refuse to put a 0 anything oil in an engine and expect it to live as well as with the older 5-20 oil. I had a hard time going to the 5-20 years ago, when it dropped from 10-30...

I changed the oil and filter and drained the oil cooler (an additional cup and a 1/3 comes out of there). In total 7-1/2 quarts of very black-looking oil came out. Pennzoil 0W-40 SRT is supposed to be the factory fill. Compare that amount to the capacity refill recomendation of 7 quarts with filter and that would lead you to believe they do put something extra in there at assembly. I was wondering why the dipstick showed a full 1/2 inch above the full line. After refilling with 7 quarts it is now exactly at the fill line.

I sent a sample out to Blackstone Labs and here's the results. Interesting. It looks like the factory adds some type of moly additive given the high level present. A few other owners have posted very similar results from their own factory fill first oil changes (three other cars at 500, 600 and 1700 miles).

The oil pan does have a fancy-shmancy Hellcat SRT logo on it. And all the drain plugs and filter were properly fastened. I double-checked because of some horror stories from other owners about assembly line finger-tight drain plugs. I did replace the oil pan drain plug with a heavy duty magnetic version.

The county finally finished paving my street after leaving me with a 6" drop-off at the end of my driveway for a week.

So I took the heckitty out for drive today. Just got back from a cruise night and this is what she showed:
