Probably the best Subaru results I've ever seen. Low wear. Viscosity looks perfect.
Kendall likes titanium, maybe a good thing.

Great to hear positive feedback. At $1.99 a quart I will stock up. And, since OCIs are cheap, I will change at 5K miles.
I drive the Crosstrek rather hard, and often get the RPMs up to 6k (red line is around 6.5K). The engine is so very smooth on the Kendall, no matter how hard I drive it. It's the CVT that sounds stressed.

Silicon looked a tad high. Usually that is around 15 ppm from the normal anti-foam additive.
Its not a "big" problem at 40 ppm, but I would look at how the air filter and plastic pipes (aka, the air path) are seated and sealed. Silicon can get in from sandy silica dust in the air.
I didn't see that the 1st time I looked.

$1.99 a quart for full synthetic Kendall is awesome. They are highly regarded. Its made by the old reliable Phillips 66 company.

Cool, I will check out the air filter and air path.

That is very good !!
Only 5ppm iron in 7000 miles, that’s under the magic 1ppm per 1000 miles line. Not often seen.

It’s still has ample TBN at 2.9 and it’s viscosity is still in grade.

Keep going with the Kendall

Where are you getting it for $2/qt? It's hard to find it below $4 and when I do, the shipping usually jacks it up closer to $5.

Nice report btw..I ran the 5w30 SB towards the end of the summer with no issues.

Exactly, but mostly because of CAFE.

IMO, 5w-30 is even better

I bought a case of it at $1.99 per quart from the local 99Cents Only Store, several months back. The store manager ordered a case of it for me. I'm going to order two cases when the store manager is working again.
