I don't know how many of you get your oil analyzed, but I am taking my sample today to send out to Blackstone. There is a thread in the MS3 section but none here so I thought I would get one started.

You can go to there website and get a free oil sample kit, or if you have a friend who is a nurse, have them snag you a couple pee sample cups they work just as well :blush 1:

Nice. Can you give us more info on your oil? Brand, weight, miles on it, etc...??
pennzoil platinum 5/20 with 5k miles on this change. I sent the sample UPS so I should be getting it back soon. I wish I would have also mentioned that I was on my third oil change.

Why didn't they give you a TBN on yours?
I didn't want one at this point in time my total base number isn't important to me. I will get one at around 30k miles and all my break in is done.
