Got my RT6 MV analysis back, overall happy with it and definitely a "heavier" 5w30.

Default 2018 STi -- High Silver

Just had my first UOA done on Driven 5w-40. Silver is showing very high at 8. I had plans to track the car next weekend but now I'm having doubts. All the other metals look fine. Any thoughts?

Most Resource Conserving oils will shear in an EJ turbo, but Idemitsu has some pretty impressive specs on paper. At least your wear metals are low despite the viscosity being a 20 grade.

Yeah, I suspect the same. I'm not worried about it. This was a year between changes with little driving and a higher than usual amount of idling. I'm happy with the results for almost 90k miles.
