Royal Purple oil for Gen II 3.5 Ecoboost?

Is anyone running royal purple oil in their gen II Ecoboost engine? I am about to do my first oil change and wanted to know if anyone had anything to say about it. I have used it before on my 02 SD with the 7.3 and was thinking about using it on this engine also.

As long as you are using the correct weight, 5W-30, I can't think of a reason why it wouldn't be good enough.

Probably no better than cheaper oils. Assuming it's got the right SAE spec, it should be fine. If you are the type who likes data, get an oil analysis.
