Great results! What is your driving style?
City/Highway?

It seems like the oil held up well.

A great Frankenbrew UOA. About time for a new air filter or to tighten up the airbox screws and hoses.

Work is 3 miles from home but once a week I take a class 50 mile away. On the weekends I often take long drives of 100+ miles.

Silicon is a touch high but not enough to worry me. According to the owners manual it is time to change the air filter (30k) but every time I have changed it in the past it has looked very clean so I will check it and probably run it another 15K.
