Calling all Gen 3 Hemi owners.

I'd like to ask you all to post your vehicles mileage, year, your choice of engine oil, oil filter, service intervals, driving style and if you have a tick, error codes, chewed cam lobes etc.

I have only owned my 392 for 4 months but but there is no mention of any issues in the vehicles service record.

It has 44,000 trouble free miles on the clock.
no obvious ticking
manufactured in 2016
Jeep UK have been using Petronas Syntium 0W-40, Mopar oil filters
Service intervals 6-7K miles
I've just started using Castrol Edge 0W-40, K&N oil filter (HP-2010)
I don't know if the car has been driven hard or what the idles times are like.
Oil pressure at idle when warm 31psi

Have 15 5.7 Overland, 65K miles. Have always run 30Ws in it, last 15K miles use Redline 5w-30, no ticking and very quiet, note I think the Redline makes it run quieter on start up. It is my wifes winter beater. It will tick quite a bit on first start up after sitting all summer, but once the offending lifter pumps up, no more nosie if drive dailey or even it sits for a few days. Have run Mobil1, QS Synth, Penzoil PUP, Castrol Edge.

Have 17 392 SRT Challenger, only 7K miles but run Redline 5W-40. No ticks.

Oh, I use Fram XG2 Synthetic filters and cut them open post mortem after every oil change, also have Gold magnetic drain plugs to keep an eye on them.

Can I ask you what kind of oil pressure you get at warm idle? I'm at about 30/31 PSI. I'm very seriously considering a hellcat oil pump which will give me 45-50 PSI at warm idle.

I will take a look, dont recall. My Overland is in my garage getting detailed and will be put away for the summer, my SRT is under a car cover, hope to put it back on the road for next weekend.

Will fire them up and let you know next week. Note I dont notice any issue running the Fram XG2's, they are excellent filters and for 8$ at Walmart, cant beat the price, they are from what I have reasearched one of the best per micron rating. They have excellent construction when I dismember them ;) Off top of my head over 50 PSI cruising around.

Oil pressure on my 2013 gc overland hemi is 46 at idle fully warmed up. At highway speed it is 51-52 same as the day I bought it new. Dealer oil changed using Pennzoil synthetic platinum 5-20 every 7500 miles.

I'm only getting 30/31 PSI at warm idle although I'm running 0w-40 which is a lot thinner. Just ordered a hellcat oil pump which should give me another 10-15 PSI.
