UOA 12072019 (Evo)

UOA for the Evo with regular Red Line 5w30. Ton of hard usage ont he car, 3-4 track days, a few autocrosses, etc. The regular RL 5w30 seems to be showing a little weakness here again with the copper number. I may switch back to the race oil, especially given how well it did and…

While I’ve addressed things like oil cooling and oil starvation, I hadn’t messed with anything on the intake side, other than having an cone air filter. Actually, when I first got the car, I switched…
