Its supposed to be pretty good. I know alot of people who use it and are satisfied with it. I plan on using it when my motor/trans goes in.

As for Royal Purple, I know their synthetic oils are really top quality. The procedures that goes into is very intricate and its not like they just dump random stuff into a purple bottle and charge you 11 clams per qt.
