You can see the first analysis showed no titanium and the second analysis did. The first sample was not the new liquid titanium oil, just the standard synthetic. I started using blackstone labs to see about extending our oil change intervals because my wife puts so many miles on this car.

So far our car looks to be very happy and the Subaru synthetic oil is holding up very well. I did not add any oil between oil changes, I didn't want to contaminate the sample.

Our car was also stage 2 tuned by infamous, catted downpipe, 17.5 psi. We are at 99,000 miles now and have had no problems with this car, stock vf46 turbo.


almost no magnesium, odd
