I'm not worried about the lead, I'll see how it plays out next time. I was a little surprised that the BC had better TBN that the Gold bottled extended performance from the previous OCI. I have at least 2 more 10K BC OCI's in the AZ discount stash. Sorry about the pic, I'm not on a real computer.

Are you adding molybdenum aka mos2 to these oils?? Seems rather high molybdenum content for Castrol.

Holy Moly.
Did your bottle say Titanium on it? It looks quite low.

The previous OCI had moly added. The current OCI didn't but 2 qts of the top us oil was Pennzoil SRT 0-40 which has high moly.

Being that your in Cali, it's time to move up to a HDEO (Rotella, Delo, etc). These LS motors are pretty loose in tolerance and do great on 40Ws. Your bearings will thank you. My humble $.02

I do have about 10 gallons of bulk 15w40 HDEO, I might give it a try.

Thanks for pointing to this post, RedOakRanch.

Looks like the EP still has TBN 4 after 9900 miles. What was the oil with 14K run?
