can't really tell.

is that a broken rod?
did he attempt warranty coverage on this? (which obviously should be denied)

stage 2 power levels usually dont break rods. maybe it was tuned a bit too aggressively? maybe the rods are that weak?

Subaru covered the tear down, which was nice of them.

I think it's been said that since the fa has stronger Pistons the rods go instead lol

I guess we'll never know for sure... don't think he quite finished the tune when it went. Now we will wait until after the new build is done and see how that turns out!

I had Blackstone retest the viscosity of my Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 5W-30 sample I recently sent to them. They were very willing to do this. No questions asked and only took one day extra day.

The SUS came back at 53.2 which is roughly 8.1 cSt. Not much better but closer to OAIs results and still the best GF-5 oil I think we've seen so far.

I'm tempted to run Motul 300V 0W20 and post a uoa on it. The used viscosity would likely be thicker than most uoa's here. Even more likely with Red Line 5W20.

I always find it hilarious when people freak out when a dealer puts 0W20 on a receipt. Even if the dealer did use 0W20, the operating viscosity in a turbo (especially a DIT) really isn't any different.

OK I have a UOA for everyone - it is not MY UOA - it is a UOA from a member of the Facebook group. He sometimes posts on NASIOC - username is biomusic74

The oil used here in AmsOil's new Signature Series 0w40. It's the first SS oil that's probably ideal for this application as the 5w30 is a bit thinner than the 40 weight that many like to run.



This UOA blows my mind. NO fuel. I don't get it. And doesn't that oxidation number seem high? I dunno; i think the sample got mixed up.

What type of driving does he do? Highway? How does he warm the car up in the morning? what does a daily commute look like for him?

should have an answer for you on that by lunch. i wondered that too but the fact that there is NO fuel at all seems impossible to attribute to just driving habits or warming up the car or whatever. i still think they mixed up the sample; that seems more likely than the alternative - that SS 0w40 is some kind of miracle juice

OK cool ya'll both got a jab in - please please leave it at that...we all know ya'll can't get along but i don't want either of you to get kicked off the thread or whatever it is that mods do - and we'd prefer to continue with the oil discussions w/o the back and forth. Thanks.

My theory is either really good ring seating or warm climate (the worst dilution is happening in the cold). I searched his username and found he is most likely in Florida.

If you look at JSC Speed's old UOA's there wasn't much fuel dilution, but they were from mostly driving in the summer.

JSC Speed's Red Line UOA was performed by Blackstone. Based on what we know about Blackstone's fuel content testing methods, we simply cannot use that fuel number for any discussion.

hi yeah thats me =p wasn't too sure what his means to me till quantam13 explained of it to me.

I was surprised about it too. the how I am driving is that:
-simple daily driver, but working on making the car more than DD
-when I start my car, I just let her warm up for few minutes, we live in Fl so our temperature gets pretty warm here.
-on avg. I driving about 450 mi's per week.

You do let the car warm up! I do as well but my fuel numbers were much higher.

It sounds like it may have a lot to do with ambient temperature, as mentioned before.

wiUfsh probably right. remember, oil does thicken up if in colder climates.
