Default Blackstone results not good

Blackstone is concerned. They recommend checking again at 4k miles.

Is this a "stop driving immediately and have the rod bearings replaced" scenario?

Any input welcomed.

Thanks


My experience with having high amounts of lead and copper was really odd. I did a couple tests and it never got better, so I had the rod bearings replaced. After taking a look at the old bearings, there really wasn’t much damage at all, nothing like any pictures you see. It kinda had me lost faith in taking a oil analysis.
