Just got my first UOA in from Blackstone. It's a short interval mainly because I had some concerns about hemi tick and I didn't know what the dealer put in it when I bought it in February.
Would love to have any feedback on my numbers. I know 2k is short, but I'm pretty worried about the tick I have. Can't tell if it's manifolds or bad lifter or just normal noisy valvetrain.
Replaced the dealer fill with RP-HPS 5w-30 and a Wix XP filter. Plan to go 5k on it and test again.

Leviksu, if the goes away or diminishes after engine is warmed up, that would point to broken manifold bolt or bolts. If it is the hemi tick, some state red line 5-30 will quite it down or eliminate it completely.
