Prolly Blackstone. Please obtain KV 40, TAN, all that good stuff. VI calculation. Harmon Index. It's a thing.

BSLabs is pretty slow. I nearly always get same night results from Lab One. I drop samples off in person, though.

All these UOA's of Edge EP are completely meaningless now.

All oils have been re-formulated to 'TGDI' and Dexos 1 Level 2 specs.

They will have high Mg/low Ca detergent, and will have some Ti in them now.

In my observations, Ti is the least used of the 3 "common" EP additives... with Boron being 1st followed by Moly. Most use either boron or moly, or a combo of Boron and Moly (moron?😂)... unless you're talking about a specific brand like Kendall or Castrol, which it's not uncommon to find all 3.

Phos and zinc are usually in the 700ppm and 800ppm range respectively.

Not all have Ti. 3 that I know of and the Ti Castrol uses is in-house. It’s different. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen a baseline for EDGE EP which is why I was curious.
