I have a 2002 Sentra 1.8, only has intake a little less restricted, and advanced timing. On this sample it had GC 0W30. But right now it has 147,000 miles and it's using a mix of half/half Amsoil Signature Series 0W30 and Pennzoil Platinum Synthetic 5W20. After this analysis, I added a bottle of Subaru Coolant System Conditioner to the radiator.

Odd that the Viscosity is high and out of range. Are you sure they got the oil weight right? Wear numbers look good.

I think Blackstone messed up with their ranges. 11.4 cSt is not out of range for an Xw-30 oil. Their comments regarding 0w-30 vs 10w-30 are stupid. How can they tell them apart if they only test viscosity at 100 deg C?

There seems to be a bunch of dumb comments coming from these guys lately.

how many times have you changed the headgasket? these engines put out low wear numbers with a headgasket leak.
never changed a headgasket. I'm kind of worried it might happen any time so I put in a bottle of subaru coolant system conditioner and I might replace it with a 2004 sentra Spec-V
