Looks real good, pretty high in zinc/phos too. I used T6 for my last oil change and plan on sending my sample in aswell when I change it out this week. Its nice you can get such a solid oil without blowing so much money on stuff like amsoil. I also use the 15-40 in my atv and dirtbike.

Very nice. I run a wix filter and Rotella T6 in my daily driver Evo as well. Looks like I'll confidently push the oil to 4,000 miles instead of 3 next time.

Let me know if you want me to add it to my thread here. http://forums.evolutionm.net/evo-eng...g-testing.html


I had a few other Shell UOAs but seemed to have disappeared. Seems like a really god oil for the price.
