Viscosity dropped too low for your tune and mods, especially. I'd use Shell Rotella T6 Multi-Vehicle 5W-30 to counteract the fuel dilution and maintain wear protection better. It also has strong dispersant for DI turbo carbon soot. Walmart can get that for pickup at the store from their website.

Mods I've done along with the tune include K&N panel filter in stock airbox, 170* thermostat, heat range colder spark plugs, MSD ignition coil packs, and 3-BAR MAP sensor, along with a catted down-pipe and catback exhaust system. All of these were done during probably the last 1,000 miles or so of the oil life, and they're pretty much the most common mods in the SHO world.


Interesting comment about the viscosity and changing oils. I may look into that. Thanks

It would be interesting to see what an Amsoil/Polaris UOA would say about your fuel dilution. If still around 1-2%, you’re one of the lucky EB owners; they use GC to measure, not “estimate” based on flash, or however BS “measures.” I had low visc with Pennzoil too.. 8.2 at 6k, a bit higher (8.4) at 1k into next fill. And a tad of Ti, and a tad of Potassium. Tad = 1 ppm. It appears to me, Pennzoil Plat & Ultra VOA’s show they start out with less visc than they claim, and then shear down after that...or maybe it’s fuel dilution not true “shear,” dunno. I will look for a Rotella UOA in an EB, but the advice to try Rotella Multi-vehicle, or Gas Truck is worth investigating. You don’t think your SHO would be offended by using something called Gas Truck, do you? Somewhere in BITOG there is a chart showing Pennzoil, Rotella, QSUD virgin spec comparison.

Definitely considering the Rotella, but curious to think what everybody's thoughts are on using Mobil 1 Extended Performance? I'm still not going to go past 4,000 mile OCI's. The Mobil 1 EP seems like it is also a very stout oil that would hold up well in my application.
