    Looking for expertise. I got my Oil Analysis Report from Blackstone Labs. Attached is the report. As you can see, No findings or recommendations. Please let me know what you think.

    I changed by own oil at 522 miles and have a sample to send off to Blackstone but have yet to do so. I did see at least one other Hellcat factory fill analysis on this site some time back; if you can find it you compare your results. I will post mine after I get to the post office and send it off but will be awhile.
    I am not an expert but don't think much info is to be had from the 1st 500 mile oil but is cool to have a record. When and if I do sell my cat I can show I keep the inside of my engine as clean as the outside of my car as I plan to have the oil checked every few oil changes. When selling used cars on eBay and such "real car people" like things like a oil analysis. Its a medical record for your car! Worth the $29 when you sell and just a cool thing to have IMO.
    Thanks for posting your results.

    Now you have a Baseline to Go from,at intervals you may choose an example would be 2500 mile intervals.
    Get it done again,this will be a trend analysis,continue to do so and the lab should
    Give you warnings if high levels of certain metals or Liquids ie : antifreeze(This would show obvious signs earlier anyway)are detected.
    There is no real magic in hellcat engines,typical Liquid Cooled internal combustion
    Engine.
    Hope this gives some insight!
    WearCheck FYI - How to get the most out of your oil analysis program
    Ps ;you might want to black out your details in the analysis report
    Just edit the post fix and repost.

    From the bold on Copper and Silicon are higher than normal, but as soundman5000 a first oil change at 500 miles, will probably have a little more extra crap in it. I'd just call Blackstone and ask their opinion. I know there is someone on here that is an oil rocket scientist but I can't remember who. Mods/Admins, it might be nice to have an oil analysis area where we can all share our results and kind of make a cumulative trend analysis. I'm sure Dodge would benefit from this info.

    Just noticed their comments section:

    "JUSTIN: The Hellcat is an impressive machine, that's for sure! As you can imagine, we haven't seen a lot of samples from these engines yet, so our average file is still under construction. Universal averages currently show typical wear after about 4,500 miles of oil use. This is the factory fill and the higher metals and silicon are just from new parts wearing in and harmless sealers. They should wash out with each oil change, so look for progress in the coming reports. We didn't have enough oil to check the viscosity or flashpoint. Check back to start building trends!"

    So it sounds like nothing to be concerned about. I have my Blackstone kit (somewhere, got it months ago), now if I could just get my Cat I'd be set.

    The idea is this is fascinating. How much does it cost?
