First time posting on here! Figured I would share this as I don’t see many reports for these cars on here. I believe silicon is high due to replacing the oil pan gasket (with oem Toyota fipg) two oil changes ago and having had replaced the valve cover gasket the previous oil change. Wear metals, especially aluminum and chromium seem a bit high compared to averages supplied by Blackstone for my engine type. This car gets abused every time I drive it. Alot of 4,000 rpm+ upshifts and the occasional run to redline. Im wondering if my wear metals are higher due to being compared to cars that have the same engine (Toyota Corolla and Matrix) that don’t see abuse as they are mainly commuter cars. Also, with my factory 4.3 final drive I’m at 3600 rpm’s doing 70 and a tad over 4,000 rpm’s doing 80. I imagine this could also contribute to wear as I spend about 40% of my miles driving on the highway with this car. Planning on doing a Corolla 5th gear swap next winter to drop cruising rpm’s by 400. Upcoming oil change will be with Castrol Edge 5w-40 A3/B4 and a TRD oil filter.
