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:
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)
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.

Looks good Steve! How many miles do you have in your car? I use the same oil like you since 50k miles. i should send a sample of my oil to blackstone to see the result. I have 120k miles. Tuned since 30k miles.

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?[02/07 E92 335i 6MT] - Under Construction
