I had Polaris Labs perform an analysis on virgin Red Line 10W-30 after having them look at the oil out of my NSX: https://bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/4444331/Red_Line_10W-30,_1992_Acura_NS

Thanks for that, Robert. It's always nice to see a VOA!

Heck if I run low on Lubegard Biotech this would make as a fair substitute for sure at 3 ounces per qt formula.

TBN 13.9!!!

What's interesting about the 10w30 is that the specs on Redline's site actually say that the 5w30 has a higher HTHS at 3.7 than does the 10w30 at 3.5.

But remember, it's only good for 3000 miles at the most smile

Yeah, I was looking at the 5W-30 oil recently and noticed that, too. The numbers are kind of confusing, really. Part of me wonders if I shouldn't give the 5W-30 a try, but at my temperatures (Houston) I can't imagine it matters.

Redline oils seem to have notably higher TBN since they reformulated products within the last two years.
