It's good oil. Only a few bucks more than T6. I consider it equal to T6.
Here's a UOA comparing:
•Rotella T6 0w40
•Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck 5w40
•Mystik JT8 15w40 Synblend
With the 15w40 Synblend showing the best wear results.
I have M1 TDT 5w40 in the sump now from over winter and will be changing it to Red Line 15w40 very soon.
Dave just pick a 10k rated oil filter and change them even if you are not changing the oil.
