No, but gathermewool on IWSTI.com and bobistheoilguy is running it in his STI. Even though it's a 5W-30 that has a high HTHS, it has a low TBN and is not meant for extended drains. Ideally, the TBN on it will drop slowly but I haven't seen any data on it. I wouldn't run it past 3,750 miles without some data and Amsoil doesn't recommend it for your model year either. It's also a low SAPS oil so it will have low zinc and phosphorus levels like a typical 5W-30. It should stay in grade better than an Energy Conserving 5W-30 though.

For Amsoil, go with DEO 5W-40 or the 0W-40 Power Sports if you want a robust oil. No cats, go with HDD 5W-30.

gathermewool's uoa's on SSO with some discussion on the AEL:
