No need to make 2 posts. Amsoil is good, but I think it's really all preference. Synthetic is the way to go in my opinion, but as long as you change your fluids when they need to be changed, it shouldnt' make too much of a difference what brand you use.

Good synthetics should put you in the 12's, pending your Tornado is in good shape.

In all seriousness, like said, changing fluids isn't going to do much of anything for performance but your truck will appreciate the use of quality fluids, minus Royal Purple (IMO).
