    Got my Blackstone oil analysis report back....

    Since I do a lot of experimenting and run a fairly non-standard setup, I sent my oil out for analysis.

    Various specs on the car that may influence these results:

    BMS DCI
    ER oil cooler
    Runs on 100% E85 all the time
    E85 CP injection (started that approx. 3K in to this oil's interval)
    Mobile 1 0W 30
    6um external inline E85 compatible high flow filter
    Various LPFP setups and customization
    NGK 5992 plugs (Gaped to .02)
    EE FMIC
    Valve cleaning was done 5K prior to this oil change

    A couple things I was watching for...obviously signs of wear was a big one and how my turbos were doing.

    The other is because I do E85 CP injection and I also do a couple non-standard things on the tuning end for fueling I wanted to make sure I wasn't getting cylinder washing or anything of that sort. So no fuel in the oil was important.

    Also worth noting, before I did this oil change I did a few WOT runs with CP injection on to help detect if there were any issues.

    Anyway, here are the results.

    FYI, Magnesium is an additive in Mobile 1, so higher levels of it are to be expected.

    Cheers

    I love the analysis these guys do. I'll have to send mine in too.

    E85 CP injection, why? If you're running 100% E85, is there really much to gain?

    There are some IAT benefits and to supplement the HPFP. Now that I know all is good, I don't have cylinder washing, and havent had any apparent issue with distribution or atomization, I plan on testing a .375lpm nozzle. Up until now I've been running a .225lpm nozzle.
