Polaris Labs. Taken from my make-up bottle. Iron........0 Chromium....0 Nickel......0 Aluminum....1 Copper......1 Lead........0 Tin.........0 Cadmium.....0 Silver......0 Titanium....0 Vanadium....0 Silicon....15 Sodium.....18 Potassium..6 Molybdenum..810 Antimony....0 Mangnanese..0 Lithium.....0 Boron......20 Magnesium...14 Calcium.....2673 Barium......2 Phosphorous.1157 Zinc........1302 Water.......<0.1 Viscosity...10.5cSt TBN.........8.59 I don't know about the boron. They had re-run it because the Iron and Lead were high for a VOA. The first run Boron was only 8 and the Moly was 672. Also, the first run potassium was only 1. The first run TBN was 8.19, I didn't ask them to redo that. ΔB

With how much the first test they preformed differs to this one. I would not hold any of those numbers to be totally accurate. Just compare Redline VOAs on the board to get a round about figure

It's a test of the lab as much as it is a test of the oil. I wanted to try something other than blackstone. These guys didn't have any redline in their database. They created a new entry for it. dB

Man did it ever, that looks like great oil. Only one virgin TBN of 8ish was about the only red flag I saw in any of them. I know when I changed to redline the first time it was like unlocking the hounds, my Hemi purred. And I am a fan of esters above all else based on my limited research. I will indeed do a UAO to add to the knowledge base when I get enough miles on my current oil change. it should be interesting because I have mostly short city trips and very low miles. It will take a year and a half for me to get 8000 miles on the oil change. Looks like my oil choice is solid, nuff said. Thanks again bud
