I would like to share my latest UOA. 7,405 mile interval and 8 month service. The only thing that starting to concern me is the insoluble percentage trending up. Oil filter used is OE Subaru blue can. I guess I'll keep an eye on it on my upcoming interval cycle.

I'm currently running Purolator PureONE oil filter so we'll see if that makes a difference.

Code:

You're probably right at the limit of the OEM oil filter (or any non extended oci filter) with your oci. OEM air filter?

Thanks for the UOA! Looks like the PU held up well. So did the M1EP. I think you just have a good engine.

Yeah I'm using OE Subaru air filter. Last air filter was switched out at ~25,000 miles.

I initially had an OE oil filter installed for my current cycle. Then someone here pointed out that Subaru/Fram recalled the OE oil filter that I installed. The OE oil filter was immediately replaced by PureOne filter the day after the oil change.

The filter change was by coincidence. This maybe a good thing as now I can see if a "higher quality" filter will make a difference on my insoluble numbers.
