Engine Oil Observation - Post Tune

When I did my tune, truck had 9800 miles on it. Did an oil and fuel filter change at same time.

Have put about 800 miles on the truck since the tune. Checked my oil this evening. It is still a nice amber color! When the truck was stock, my oil was black after only 500 miles.

Just an observation.....

It’s OK for the oil to be black. It is the detergents keeping contaminants from clinging to the engine.
