45K miles you are doing good. On my '01, one of the lowers had to be replaced in order to pass state inspection at only 25,000 miles! Many problems with that lemon and it was gone 2 months later.

There is what looks like a lot of fuel, but then you spent a number of miles in the rich part of the fuel map while tracking. Other than that, it looks good. I'd try those five track days and then see what the oil looks like. I'll bet that you'll se

These engines seem to do well with Rotella T6 also, I've switched two (that a friend owns) over to T6 and stopped an oils consumption issue with one and made both run and sound very smooth and quiet. FWIW; these engines are know to toss rod bearings
