Default Oil Analysis Results 7000 miles

At about 1700 I had switched out the stock fluids and put in Schaeffer's Supreme 7000 5w-30 (part number 701). http://www.schaefferoil.com/data/701.htm

My driving style
Half of the miles were freeway and the other were city. I'm way more heavy-footed than not. I don't race from every stoplight, but I'm almost always under some boost in town.

Here's the results of my OA after almost exactly 7000 miles on this drain.

The findings are broken down into 4 categories.

Wear metals: Parts per million
Copper 33 Normal
Iron 9 Normal
Chromium 0 Normal
Aluminum 5 Normal
Lead 6 Normal

Additives: PPM
Molybdenum 243 Normal
Zinc 835 Normal
Phosphorus 887 Normal
Magnesium 5 Normal
Calcium 1461 Normal

Contaminants: %
Antifreeze 0% Normal
Fuel Dilution 0% Normal
Water 0% Normal
Silicon PPM 14 Normal

Oil Properties:
Viscosity (Cst) 11.61
SAE Grade 30W
Sulfur 46 Normal
Oxidation 5 Normal
Nitration 4 Normal

Those results look great. Here's a link to my last results at 5300 miles on the oil. I'll be running somewhere around 7k miles on my current interval (about half-way there right now).

I had mine analyzed at 14,000 miles, with 4,000 miles on the oil, and interestingly they said my oil looked very good & that I could probably run at least 5000 miles before changing it. And I drive my car pretty hard at the track too...

I use Blackstone Laboratories for my oil analysis. It runs $20 to have your oil analyzed.

I used Blackstone too. They say they turn the results around right away, but my oil supposedly got delayed in transit back to them (using US Mail) and it took about 3-4 weeks.
