Surprised that this is not dexos1 Gen 2 oil (judging by the calcium level) given that the OPer must have poured it in or after late 2018...that standard went live in September of 2017 and the major brands had d1G2 jugs out on the shelves pretty soon after that.
I think this looks like a decent report all around and it is interesting that the Fe level did not go up all that much compared to the previous report despite the oil being run nearly twice as long.

I'll bet this is a fun car to drive!

I was thinking PP had a 100+ppm moly? Or maybe that's the HM version?

Yeah, I tend to stock up on oil whenever there's a sale that's too hot to resist so I'm pretty sure that was the old formula.

Impressive , wonder if the Platinum ( Dexos 1, Gen 2 ) that followed would hold up as well ? GOOGLED Pennzoil Platinum Dexos1 Gen2 and the Platinum GF-6A , SP ( Dexos1 , Gen 2 ) showed up at AMAZON .
