Submitted a VOA of Red Line 0w-30 using NAPA's kit, which seems to use ALS Labs for the actual analysis. The report say 10w-30 but was indeed 0w-30 purchased in Jan 2018.

Adding link to the UOA of the same oil:

Interesting. The silicon which is a anti-foaming agent seems quite high.

RL's certainly consistent as they've barely changed anything over the years. This is clearly not the SN street oil. Thanks for sharing.

I wonder how this oil would work with cars that have LSPI issues.

This is really being over complicated. All that's been found are oils with high calcium levels have been correlated with LSPI. All oil manufacturers have done to address it is lower calcium. NO high calcium oil is going to be a good choice IF LSPI is an issue in your particular make (which it shouldn't be. Stop trying to make 2.0Ls feel like 5.0L V8s with these tiny hot running turbos and high low rpm loads. That's turbo 101 in the aftermarket turbo upgrade world for longevity). I've had two german DI turbo cars and this was never an issue on either despite the factory undersized turbos and overloaded low rpm range.

ZDDP and moly help with LSPI. Now, does Red Line's dosing counteract sufficiently for this?

And this been my observation as well. Unless they are using some silicon-based compound other than, or in addition to, dimethylsiloxane, this seems excessively high.

This is definitely not a daily driver oil. Use it on track day only.

That silicon value is consistent with their other "High Performance" oils. Redline sells a separate line for track day Race oils.

It would be cool if they started up a line of lower calcium/higher magnesium 'LSPI preventative' oils, while keeping their other additives at current levels. cool

But they obviously do not want to compete with the majors for modern engine oils (nor even the higher volume 'boutiques' for that matter). frown
