I agree with Blackstone that you could run longer OCI's. IDK, shoot for 6K miles instead or 5k or less. Well done btw & thanks for sharing.

There has been a lot of "the sky is falling" posts with people who have found torn Purolator and some Motorcraft filters. And, to be honest, I don't think anybody purposely wants to run their engine with a torn filter. So with that being said, has anybody got a Blackstone report from an engine that has known to run 6K with a torn filter? I bet the results would surprise a few people who have panicked.

I don't think that's really the point, though. Few have suggested that a media tear is going to cut an engine's life, much less blow it to pieces. However, I hardly think it's out of line for me to expect that when I buy an oil filter, its media will remain intact for an ordinary service interval.

RE: The oil.

I know it could go longer, but it isnt my call really on this one.

This run has significantly less idle time on it than has been typical as well...

Total 2301 hrs running, Total 1416 hrs idle, This run (117/29) 58%

RE: The filter. Should probably talk about it on the filter thread.
