on the flip side ---- some tests indicate that a thinner oil (like 5w-20) is much easier/lubricates better at start-up than a heavier grade and most engine damage is done on start-up.
There is zero difference in start up protection between 5w-20 and 5w-30 as both start as 5 weight oil when cold.When at operating temps is when the difference is since the 5w-20 will be 20 weight and 5w-30 will be 30 weight.

You want thinner oil for very cold start ups(-30 degrees and below) then you want to look at 0w-30 oil.

yep, technically you are right ...but if you actually look/feel/touch 5w-20 vs 5w-30 I believe you really can tell the difference....that said, I moved from Denver to Houston and will probably switch to 5w-30 because its so freakin HOT here

5W-20 is just fine. That's that they designed for it. No offense, but I will trust them over any forum hero.

The 3.7 and 4.7 was never designed for or redesigned for 5w-20.The 5.7 HEMI was when MDS was added.
