Break in, big whop. I don't see an issue with either oil. Other then the lab error on the phosphorus in the Ultra everything looks good.


30k miles is WAY pass break in....

stick with PU

Look again 19 and 25K,,that's still breaking in to most on here..

and 23 in 6k for PU? mobil bashers would be all over crying about that number if it was M1 smirk

You have to keep in mind that with the higher iron numbers on the previous run that a good portion of the iron in this run is still residual leftover. So the next OCI will almost certainly show iron levels much lower than this one.

I just changed my son's G37 Coupe to Penzoil Ultra on it's second oil change, he wanted to run dino oil for an additional 3200 mile oil interval.

Based on these results, I am glad I did it. Will probably leave it in for 7200 miles.

Excellent results! Obvious difference between PU and M1... well obvious to those that aren't head-over-heels-in-love-with-their-M1 grin

A complete reversal of what KLB posted. This guy switched to Ultra after using Mobil 1.

So to recap, KLB went from Mobil 1 to PU and wear metals went down. This guy switched from Mobil 1 to PU and wear metals went up..... and Blackstone even recommended to go back to M1 over PU.

I like it and run it myself.

But the Boron numbers tend to be all over the place on Ultra.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. If you love your
VVEL, put Redline or Motul in it, run it for 5K OCIs. It's
cheaper and you'll have total peace-of-mind. Many VVEL owners
are spending more time and and much more money on UOAs
trying to find a cheaper oil that works in these engines than it
would cost to use something proven to hold up well.

Try an OEM air filter and an M1 oil filter. You can get 5 quarts of M1 EP including an M1 oil filter at AZ for about $38. AZ and Mobil run the deal every 2/3 months. Your engine is still breaking in. It's natural for the wear metals to decline over the break in period. Don't take the UOA,and explanations,too literally. It's Alchemy;Not Science.

The best VQ37 UOA on the web is Pennzoil Platinum 5W-30. Eneos 5W-30 has some excellent published VQ37 UOAs, as does Castrol Syntec 5W-30.

I have not seen an excellent Motul or Redline UOA on the G37 where all the wear metals are below universal average. And I belong to Dyson Mobility Weblog.

Source for your claims, please.
