Yes, but once you find a brand you like stick with it, I have always used Valvoline products, I knew a guy that had a Purple Vette and he ran Royal Purple. To each his own I guess, the point is don't bounce around with Brands.

I ran Mobil1 5w30 or 5w40 in my 2006 Vette. If you have to dye your oil purple to sell it, I don't want it. Mobil1 is perfect and Walmart has it for a great price.

What Bob said! Your Corvette engine was designed to thrive under the benefits of Mobil 1 synthetic! Why change? It's been proven time and time again! Simple as that!
