Rotella synthec t6 5w40 oil analysis

Recently, I sent my oil to black stone lab. Surprisingly, the t6 performs real well. The car was on dyno twice. I use it for daily driving, too. Here are the mods list:

HKS 272
ETS 3.8" garret core
ets licp
perrin intake pipe with OMG air filter
ARP headstud
Fujitsubo rma01 exhaust
Milspec 100 cell cat
Tanabe dp
Ported exhaust manifold by Milspec
Map o2 housing
walbro 255
RC1200cc injectors
Unknonw MBC
Spooling up cop kit.

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.
