Compare those numbers with Blackstone's numbers. They are off.

Synpower never started with a high TBN. So it is correct.

This is true. Synpower has a low starting TBN as do most Valvoline oils.

Thank you for putting this together.

If the data is correct, then the additive level and TBN of ILSAC SynPower is identical to MaxLife. Does that means the only difference is the synthetic vs a blend base stock?

Also MaxLife Syn actually has more moly, less calcium, and lower TBN. That means MaxLife Syn is actually a better oil (if viscosity is right) than SynPower.

The lower TBN does not mean that it is not a better oil. The base stock on the full syn is better even though it has a lower starting TBN, the TBN retention is/should be better. TBN retention is not linear. The same situation with the new Mobil Super. Mobil super conventional has a TBN of ~7.7 and the new Super Syn has a TBN of ~7.0. The Super Syn is guarenteed to 7500 where as the convention is only guarenteed to 5000 miles. Better base stocks makes up for the TBN.

I recently saw a 5w20 SN Synpower UOA on another forum and it had no moly, which is a change. Still Na for a detergent.

So basically their add packs are the same across the board,just be basestock changes?
They must have some organic adds that we can't see mixed in there somewhere. These add packs look weak other than the VR-1 but they seem to put out good uoa,unless you don't need a strong additive package?

looks like valvoline has gotten the "3000 mile interval" literally down to a science. looks like im going to be swinging to PP and motorcraft.
