I used my last quart of Torco supplied by Greg Brown today. Where do people buy this stuff or other high quality oils with ZDDP? I sent to four different parts houses before trying Pep Boys (they had Royal Purple $11/qt), then Walmart. No love from Sam Walton.

Thanks for recommendations. I'm not a fan of Mobil 1, nothing to do with the oil, just don't like the company (now Exxon Mobil).

I've been sourcing Torco through Pitstop usa. I wasn't familiar with them previously, but they had good pricing and were lighting fast on shipping a couple of orders I placed for ATF, gear oil etc.

Dan, I buy Royal Purple, by the case through Summit Racing. It's at the house in a day from their warehouse in Sparks, Nv. Prolly take a extra day to Az.
It's around 8 bucks a quart, if you get it by the case. They also have promo's usually with case purchases, get some free stuff too.

Dan buy ahead by the case on all these - shop arounds (reputables) then just have it shipped.

AMSoil main site ships from AZ - quick.

Excellent recommendations! I was curious to see if there were retail locations that offered these specialty oils, seems not. Thanks for the info.

My local ORiley's auto parts has Royal Purple for $9. And they keep 20w50 in stock.

Dan,
Pep Boys carry Royal Purple. In another thread "Finally!" provided this URL for a coupon: http://www.pepboys.com/sale_specials..._oilfilter_cp/. Five quarts of Royal Purple and oil filter for $35. Since RP does not make filters for Porsche you must buy "any RP filter" to get the discount, then immediately return it for refund ($8.49). Five quarts of RP for $26.51--great deal. Each coupon is good for the purchase of 10 quarts. You have a Pep Boys on S. Arizona Ave in Chandler.

This looks like a interesting deal on Amsoil:

If you do it, let us know if there is a 'catch'.
