Here is my latest UOA for my 2003 Honda S2000 with 40,157 mile OCI and 393,467 total miles on my car. I have an Amsoil dual remote bypass filter installed, as well as a prelube pump that pre-pressurizes the oil before I start the car. I've had this setup in my car since it was almost new.

As you can see the lead spiked up this time. I'm not sure exactly what caused this, but I suspect it was caused by a bad coil pack. I was traveling when one of my coil packs malfunctioned and I had to drive a few hundred miles with the check engine light to get home and replace it. Not a smart move, but I didn't have a choice. The car still runs great and besides the increased oil consumption, the car runs great.

Holy smoke, thats a long oci. High lead can come from high amount unburnd fuel getting into the oil.
But the oil did very good indeed for a 40k oci.

You should probably stop using Amsoil it's a shady company hiding behind their marketing and it's not worth the hype. That lead is a result of that and you probably could have went 100,000 mile on some other oil in a bypass setup. I joke because others on here would think that... LOL

Excellent report for the mileage on the engine, time on the lube and the problem you had during this report. I look forward to the next report. Thanks for posting. thumbsup

Agree with you 100%! High reving engine and almost 400k miles with long oci. Well thats a high quality oil indeed!

Seems to work for me and others on this board and we aren't running bypass on our units either. Maybe in 10 years the mindset here will change... wink

Thanks for sharing.

I'd be worried about the increased oil consumption more than the lead level. You technically changed oil at least 4 times during this 40k OCI. Seems like the consumption has been doubled in the last 80000 miles. Maybe it's time to replace PCV and switch to 0w40?

Goodness gracious that’s a lot of makeup oil added. Crazy to think that just 200,000 miles ago it was only consuming 5.5 qts over the same OCI. LOL

Any plans to rebuild the block or do you plan to keep er spinning till 1,000,000 miles?

40k interval with nearly 400k miles? I'm impressed.

I don't imagine a Honda oil change being too difficult so the max interval I'd opt for is probably close to 10k miles. bypass setup sounds interesting.

Noticing 22 qts of make-up oil in 40k miles. Was that drawn off, or does the engine burn that? In either case, that would definitely keep good oil in there.

Just a qt every 2k miles. I've seen worse.

40K miles OCI is impressive! Curious what made decide to run 40k OCI? Maybe you can post a picture of your pump and the bypass filters, would be interesting to see your set up.
