Blackstone Report High Copper

Got my 1st O/A today. It don't look good.

From Blackstone
The high copper and lead readings would initially suggest a serious problem developing in the bearings, but these levels of metal also tend to turn up when Restore additive has been used. If that is not the case here then this 6.0L may need some attention. All other wear metals read right around universal averages, which are based on an oil run of about 5,200 miles. The oil's viscosity was quite low for 5W/40, reading more in the 10W/30 range. No fuel was present, and the TBN read strong at 7.3, showing lots of active additive left. Let us know on the Restore.

No Restore has been added, Only 24,000 miles. Rotella 5-40W synthetic 2,600 miles.

I have warranty until 6-18-10 Any Ideas?

After adding Rev-X the Turbo did spool up quicker and Had more PSI. I Will go by Dealership to see if the can check the Turbo. Then it will probably take 2 weeks and I'll be out of warranty.

Maybe I should do two Cheap oil changes If they replace Turbo to clean out oil system.

Anyone know if that high of copper will cause damage to the HPOP and Injectors??

I changed the coolant flter on my '07 today after about 5K miles, and noticed some copper-colored flecks and even small shavings in what I poured out of the filter. Not magnetic, and don't recall seeing them before.
