Rotella T6 is not 1200ppm, I think it's more like 800-1000.

RT6 is not a 30 weight oil.

The zddp limit of 800 only applies to "energy conserving" and now "resource conserving" oils, which are all 30 weight or under.

I still can't decide if I should worry about the ZDDP drop in oils. I know GM V8s have not had the best wear numbers with M1 5w30 so I'm running some tests on my LS1. First test is a UOA on my current fill 5.5qts M1 1qt M1 15w50 and ZDDP Maxx at 5k miles. I then have three runs of 5w30 with a mix of 0w40 and a very small dose of ZDDP Maxx. Each blend will be slightly thinner on all SM oils and then a straight 5w30 SM run and then I'll try the new M1 5w30 SN. My goal is to find out if that 12cst recommendation for LS motors is really true or if it really is about elevated ZDDP levels and then how SM compares to SN.

It can do that because 40-weights don't have limits on Phosphorous, even in SM or SN specs.

In an LS1, I think the SL oil limit of 1000ppm is safe. I ran my LS1 on M1 5w30 since it was new, and kept using it even after the change to SM. I changed over to M1 HM 5w30 last year after joining BITOG and finding out that SM oils had lower zddp. Now I'm running Redline 5w30 in it, but that is not because I was dissatisfied with M1. I just wanted to try something different. The engine still runs great and consumes very little oil at 164K miles, and after a lot of running on race tracks.

Many people on the GM websites advocate German Castrol, which is where the 12cSt number comes in. Some say the thicker oil helps with piston slap, others don't. One of the oil mixes that is on my list to try is M1 0w40/0w30. These two can be blended to get the target 12cSt KV100, but will have a higher VI than the vaunted GC.

I'd be more than happy to see M1 5w30 SN to have great wear numbers. Unfortunately there is not hard evidence on stock valvetrain wear. The majority of the LS1 UOAs on the GTO forums are to monitor new cams. I've seen failures on different brands of 5w30 in these cars, but everyone I've seen has had a cam at the very least. Of those every failure was using an SM oil and no additives. One was running M1 0w40 but had a high lift with very stiff springs. I'm just street tuned to dial in fuel and spark and even still have stock manifolds and exhaust.

But it is not GF-4, which people forget is the more significant factor in limiting ZDDP.
