look up in the diesel oil analysis I posted my wifes 2002 power stroke using Shell "syn" 5w/40 not much difference. To get real good numbers a cummins engine is needed. [Big Grin] here is some info on psd oil analysis' http://members.aol.com/fmtrvt/OilStudy/current.pdf I don't think there is much difference in the oils .

Can anyone explain why the silicon level is so high? Is that due to break in? Otherwise it would indicate some sort of leak in the air intake or a really dirty filter...

It appears that this is normal for the Ford Powerstroke engine during break-in. This is a good graph that should explain it. Scroll down to page 3 and 4 and 5.

Lightman,

The PSD uses a silicone type oil pan gasket, which tends to leach for the first 20k miles or so. These levels are perfectly normal and I see it all the time with this engine.
