The oil has quite a bit of life left in it.

Yeah, I'd say it has about three times the life used so far smile

This oil is a good choice for extended intervals on a daily driver.

Another UOA

Yeah i figured i would send it in around 7500 kms of use. It runs through two turbos so i was curious to see what 7500 looked like. Looks good i believe! Im planning on 10,000 next oci but not just because the comments section says so. Redline is awesome stuff and i am pleased with the results.

It is good oil. It's the right tool for a big HP motor like yours. And doing UOA's is the only way to know if it's used up, or has life yet laugh

Exactly. Its most likely overkill for my application but i would rather pay to know if somethings goes wrong it wasnt because of bad oil!!

Yes. Typical high-Ca detergents, skipping the Mg detergents, which might be bad for LSPI. ...... High moly is not seen that often, yet some oils like Pennzoil Ultra 0w40 inject 275 ppm moly, and we've seen it high in conventional GroupII Pennzoils at times, Mazda 0w20, Schaeffers too.

Seems like every Redline oil UOA I have seen has a higher than average lead. Is it hard on the engine bearings?

Look at my UOA referenced above and check out the lead. Most UOA's I've seen with Red Line are exceptionally low in lead readings. Red Line is an excellent long interval oil.

Nice UOA. Looking forward to running Redline for my next OCI.

That filter is getting loaded. Chromium is not a good sign either nor is the tin and lead levels.
