Here is the most recent UOA of my Accord. The blend was drained and replaced with Redline 5w-20. The filter used was a Purolator PureONE

Calculated 0w-30 virgin specs:
2qt Toyota 0w-20 + 2.5qt Mobil 1 0w-40
KV100: 10.96
VI: 198
HTHSV: 3.21
NOACK: 11.51% estimation

This analysis saw alot of abuse. 33 autocross runs over 5 events, 15 passes at a drag strip, and plenty of WOT street pulls. Im really satisfied with the performance of the oil. To put it into comparison, my previous analysis of Pennzoil Ultra 5w-20 saw some WOT pulls and dyno time, no racing. So even with the increased abuse, the CATERHAM blend held up just fine! This oil far exceed my expectations for engine wear.
