Someone needs to comment here. Guess I'll start and normally my replies draw more responses.
Good job. Just Keep running a more free-flowing filter with that high viscosity oil, designed like OEM.

Pennzoil Ultra Platinum cleaning power is also a good choice here. If you can find 5W40 or even 10W30, that'll work well too.

I think he's running PUP 5w30 now per his signature, if that's current.

Good report. I like Blackstone, but referring to 1 - 3 ppm iron as "a little higher" is ludicrous. Well within testing variances.

Wish they’d juggle the calcium/ magnesium ratios so it’d be a little better for TDGI engine LSPI issues.

Signature updated. 5w40 is acceptable viscosity per owner's manual. And I actually prefer a thicker oil due to fuel dilution.

My Korean-made 2.4 is not as responsive using a 30w 10cst over the factory fill 20w 8.5cst. Be interesting how it would react to a 40w 5w40, which is probably an 11cst.
If I ran 5w40, it would certainly only be from May to October here in Michigan. I doubt my Manual shows it as approved.

They probably have had to start including statements like this so people don't panic when they see an increase

What oil were you running at the 43,327 mile analysis ? That seems to have been good for your vehicle ???

Great oil and looks good but I would suggest using Polaris to run the UOA as I've found I can't trust BlackStone's fuel dilution figures. Plus you get TBN and oxidation figures for about the same money. I run Castrol Edge 0W-40 with ~4K OCI.

Where to you buy your ~5 quarts of Castrol Edge 5W-40 oil?
